Benfica Preview – Can Benfica go out with a bang?

2nd placed Benfica are in no danger of losing their second place spot in this weekend’s final round of matches in the Portuguese top flight as they prepare for the visit of Sporting Lisbon, with the hosts a significant 14 points ahead of their opponents, but they can’t catch league leaders, Porto either.

An eight-point margin separates Benfica from Porto ahead of this final match of the season but Benfica will be looking to close out their campaign with a win which would see the hosts unbeaten in their last five matches of the season.

Recent wins against Boavista, Vitoria Guimaraes and Desportivo Aves have seen Benfica in impressive form in the season run-in and has also meant that Benfica have successfully bounced back from back-to-back defeats to Santa Clara and Maritimo which put paid to any hopes of a title.

In addition, Benfica have won the previous two encounters on the trot against Sporting.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Sporting CP Preview – Can Sporting avenge previous defeats to Benfica?

3rd placed Sporting will head into this tasty clash against Benfica on Saturday without a win from their last two matches as the visitors were handed a 2-0 defeat away from home at Porto which was followed by a disappointing 0-0 draw at home with lowly Vitoria Setubal.

Overall though, it’s been a pretty successful campaign for Sporting Lisbon as they’ve qualified for next season’s Europa League group stages in a season which was underpinned by their solid record at home which saw Sporting win 12 of heir 17 matches at their Estádio José Alvalade.

However, the same can’t be said of Sporting’s results away from home, particularly in the latter stages of this term as the visitors have managed to register just one win from their last seven matches on their travels within an away record of 6-5-5 23/19, which was at 14th placed Belenenses.
