Benfica B Prediction

Benfica B sit in 4th place of the Segunda Liga but come into this clash without a win from their last three league matches with draws against Famalicao and Porto B, 0-0 and 2-2 respectively, along with a 2-1 loss away at Vitoria Guimaraes B last time out on their travels.

However, the hosts return to home ground for this encounter and having actually lost just once in their last six matches overall, Benfica B will be confident they can return to winning ways on Sunday evening.

The hosts also possess an excellent 100% record at home with stats of 6-0-0 11/3, which includes no fewer than 4 clean sheets in these 6 home matches. Benfica B also possess some key attacking talent in the shape of forwards Filipe and Daniel (4 goals apiece) as well as Willock (3 goals).

Key-Facts – Benfica B v Sporting Braga B

    • Benfica B possess a 100% record at home
    • The hosts have kept 4 clean sheets in their 6 home matches to date
    • Braga B have failed to score in 4 of their 7 away matches to date

Sporting Braga B Prediction

Sporting Braga B currently occupy a second from bottom position in the Segunda Liga along with sitting in the relegation zone ahead of their tricky trip to Benfica B, particularly as they’ve lost their last five matches on the trot overall.

Defeats to Cova Piedade, Varzim, Sporting Covilha, Vitoria Guimaraes B and Porto B have meant that the visitors still remain in the relegation places, but are just one point behind third from bottom club Arouca ahead of Sunday’s action.

However, four defeats on the trot away from home within an overall away record of 1-1-5 4/9 doesn’t bode well for the visitors as they look to keep a Benfica B outfit boasting a 100% home record quiet in their own backyard.

In addition, Braga B have failed to score in 4 of their 7 away matches to date, and this could be another factor in deciding the outcome of this clash.

Betting Tips Verdict

With a 100% home record, I’m fully expecting Benfica B to get the job done on home turf again on Sunday night.
