Benfica Preview – Can Benfica convert to three points?

Despite sitting in 4th place in the Portuguese Primeira Liga, Benfica have had to endure a disappointing and frustrating campaign as the hosts find themselves 16 points adrift of the league leaders, Sporting CP, as too many draws have scuppered their plans for a domestic title.

Benfica head into this Monday night’s clash against Rio Ave having suffered just one defeat out of their last 13 matches (that defeat being against Sporting CP), but this sequence of results has also included six stalemates.

Nevertheless, form at home remains solid enough as Benfica boast a good record of 7-2-1 18/8 which includes winning four of their last six with wins against Pacos Ferreira, Portimonense, Tondela and Famalicao.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Rio Ave Preview – Can Rio Ave bounce back?

A disappointing 1-0 defeat at home to Famalicao last time out in the Primeira Liga resulted in Rio Ave dropping down to 10th place on the Portuguese top flight ladder ahead of this tough looking away trip to face Benfica on Monday night.

Indeed, Rio Ave have collected just two wins out of their last seven matches overall which came in the shape of wins against Tondela and Vitoria Guimaraes but losses to Santa Clara, Porto and Famalicapo have outweighed their modest successes.

In addition, Rio Ave have managed to win just one of their last seven away matches within an away record of 2-4-4 7/13 which includes failing to score in five of their last seven matches on the road.
