Benfica Preview – Can Benfica hold onto top spot?

With their closest rivals in the Primeira Liga, Porto, also in action on Monday night, Benfica will be keen to put their recent Europa League disappointment behind them on Monday night when they prepare for the visit of Moreirense for this upcoming Primeira Liga encounter.

Although they drew 3-3 at home with Shakhtar Donetsk, Benfica went out of the Europa League after losing 5-4 on aggregate, so the hosts will now turn their attention to the domestic top flight where they hold a slender 1-point lead over Porto.

Recent results have seen Benfica slip to two defeats to Porto 3-2 away and a 1-0 loss at home to Sporting Braga, and they hold a home record of 9-0-2 27/6 which means they’re priced extremely short for this clash.

However, Benfica’s odds can be increased by including over 2.5 goals scored too, and as 6 of Benfica’s 11 home matches have also been over 2.5 goals along with Benfica winning 8 of their last 9 at home, this could be good value.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Moreirense Preview – Can Moreirense extend unbeaten run?

Despite sitting in the bottom half of the Primeira Liga in 12th place, Moreirense have strung together a useful looking 4-match unbeaten run in the Portuguese top flight thanks to wins against Gil Vicente 5-1 away and a 2-1 home win over Santa Clara.

In addition, the visitors have picked up points with draws against Vitoria Setubal and Portimonense in recent weeks too, and these improved results have helped lift Moreirense away from the relegation danger as they now hold a commanding 10-point cushion over second from bottom club, Portimonense.

However, although they’re unbeaten in their last 3 away matches in the Primeira Liga, Moreirense have managed to collect just 1 away win all season amidst an ordinary looking away record that stands at 1-5-5 13/16, while the bigger picture shows that the visitors have picked up just 3 away wins out of their last 16 on the road.
