FC Porto Preview – Can Porto extend winning form?

FC Porto will be putting their unbeaten record this season in Pergola on the line on Thursday.

They have posted a staggering W13 D2 L0 record from their matches in the league campaign.

It is a ten-match winning streak that Porto are riding at the moment and things have been so easy for them.

They have hit the back of the net at least twice in all but one of those ten matches.

Porto have scored an average of 2.5 goals per league game this season.

On home turf specifically, their average is up to 2.7 goals per game.

But there is also their defence, which is going so well.

FC Porto have shipped just one goal in total in their last five league games.

In their perfect seven wins from seven at home, they have given up just three goals.

But this should be one of their stiffer challenges.

Benfica Preview – Can Benfica come up with three points?

There have been some remarkable scoring exploits by Benfica in the league recently.

They have scored at least 4 goals in four of their last five league matches.

Benfica’s tally of goals in their last five league games is an unbelievable 25 goals.

That’s with a defeat suffered in that run of five matches as well, as they were beaten by second-place Sporting.

That could be a telling piece of form.

In the match outright for football betting, Benfica are a quote of 15/4 for the win* (odds recorded 23:22 GMT on December 28th 2021 at William Hill).

As good as Porto’s league scoring output has been this season, Benfica’s smashes that.

Benfica averaged 3.07 goals per game this season in the league.

They have also conceded under a goal per game on average.

Can they produce what would be a big three points away from home to keep themselves in touch with Porto?

Benfica have a W7D1 L0 away record this season in the league but there are hints as to which way this may go.

In their four matches played (home and away) against teams currently in the top six, Benfica are W1 D1 L2.

So even though they have a fantastic away record, they have missed the boat against stronger teams.

The visitors obviously bring a massive scoring threat to the table and over 3.5 goals is at a quote of 9/4* (odds recorded 23:22 GMT on December 28th 2021 at William Hill).

They are the leading goalscorers in the Portuguese top flight this season by a country mile.

But can they make it count on Thursday evening?
