Benfica Prediction

Benfica sit in 4th place in the Portuguese top flight and could move within just one point of the league leaders Porto if they take all three points in this top of the table clash with Sporting Braga this Sunday evening.

Benfica have recorded four wins on the trot in recent weeks with victories over Tondela, Feirense, Vitoria Setubal and Maritimo which has helped them stay in touch with the early league leaders, but they could push themselves up near the top of the division here.

The hosts possess a solid looking home record of 4-1-1 12/6 with their one defeat being a 3-1 loss to Moreirense, but wins over Vitoria Guimaraes, Desportivo Aves, Porto and Feirense should give them the momentum to grab the points here.

Goals have come from various sources to date with midfielders Silva (5 goals) and Pizzi (4 goals) as well as forwards Seferovic (4 goals) and Jonas (5 goals) while also keeping three clean sheets to date.

Sporting Braga Prediction

Sporting Braga have also been in good form in recent times as they’ve collected four wins from their last five matches overall with wins against Vitoria Setubal, Moreirense, Tondela and Feirense and they occupy third place and are one point above their hosts, Benfica, ahead of this important clash on Sunday.

Away from home, Sporting Braga have suffered just one defeat from their last six matches on the road which was a narrow 1-0 loss at Porto, but three wins from these last six along with points grabbed at Santa Clara in a 3-3 draw and a 1-1 draw at Vitoria Guimaraes should give the visitors confidence of getting something against Benfica too.

Sporting Braga’s away record stands at a fairly solid looking 3-2-1 9/5 and they too possess some dangerous attacking personnel in the shape of midfielder Horta (4 goals) along with forwards Sousa (10 goals) and Eduardo (7 goals).

Betting Tips Verdict

With both teams in pretty good nick and also possessing regular goalscorers, I’ll back both teams to score in this one.
