Match Result: Draw

Os Castores have won 6 of their last 7 home games, scoring at least 2 goals in all the games won. Benfica have won their last 5 games in the league, and have the 2nd best defence in the league with 17 goals. With over 50% of their wins in the league coming at home, Paços have also grabbed results against the likes of SC Braga who are above them, illustrating the team’s mettle against the bigger clubs in Portugal. Benfica have also only won 2 away games from their last 5.

Both Teams to Score

Paços de Ferreira are 5th in terms of goal scored in the top half of the Primeira, with 33 goals scored in 25 (1.32 goals per game). Benfica are just ahead of them in 4th with 10 more goals. With both teams comfortably scoring over a goal per game in the league, the likelihood of a clean sheet is low as a result.

First Team to Score in the First Half: Paços de Ferreira

Paços have scored 7 of their last 9 home goals in the first half; and don’t mind having a go of it when at home regardless of the opposition. Benfica, on the other hand, have scored 2 of their last 6 away goals in the first half. Coinciding with their poor recent form away, Benfica will likely need a Paços goal to wake them up in this tie.

Paços de Ferreira vs Benfica Preview and Team News

Paços de Ferreira

Paços will be without Luther Singh due to suspension, and this comes as a blow to Os Pacenses as the South African forward had come into good form in recent weeks with 3 goals in the last 2 home games. Manager Pepa is only 40 years old, yet now has over 5 years of experience coaching various teams in Portugal’s top flight. His win percentage as the boss is currently 44.62% from 60+ games.

Benfica

Benfica will be without long-serving midfielder/forward Pizzi due to him being suspended. Whilst the Portuguese playmaker only has 4 goal involvements in 1000+ minutes of league football, his experience and composure could only have bolstered the team’s performance either from the start or the bench. Manager Jorge Jesus returned to Benfica this season after 6 seasons away from the Estádio da Luz. He has won 3 league titles and 6 cups during his time in Portugal.
