It’s Friday night action from the Portuguese top flight in focus here as Benfica look to continue some good road form.

With the title this season is well beyond them, they are just aiming to lock down the third spot in the table.

As they face a Pacos Ferreira side who are out of form, Benfica look to have a good chance at securing three points.

Pacos Ferreira Preview – Can home side deliver a win?

The home form of Pacos Ferreira has been decent enough recently in the top flight.

They have taken 7 of the last 9 available points on home turf.

However, they are big 6/1 underdogs in football betting odds for Friday* (odds recorded 21:11 GMT on May 11th 2022 at William Hill).

Overall it has been a W5 D6 L5 home record by Pacos Ferreira in this campaign.

Three of those wins have happened since mid-February.

It’s been just one loss that they have suffered in their last eight home matches and that was against leaders FC Porto.

So it has been a reasonable form. But can they prevent Benfica from walking out with all three points?

Pacos Ferreira are only D1 L4 at home this season against current top-six sides.

Our betting prediction:
Benfica 2 Goal Winning Margin

* (odds recorded 21:11 GMT on May 11th 2022 at William Hill)


Earlier this season they suffered a 2-0 away defeat against Benfica.

Their recent home record against them is not very good either.

It’s been three home defeats on the spin for Pacos Ferreira against Benfica, and each of those three we lost by a margin of at least two goals.

Home and away in all competitions, Pacos Ferreira are winless in 13 against Benfica.

They have scored in just two of their last seven against them.


Benfica Preview – Comfortable three points for the Eagles?

Third place is the final goal for Benfica this season in the Portuguese top flight.

They are currently 11 points adrift of second-placed Sporting and six clear of fourth-placed Sporting Braga.

Benfica took a hit last time out, going down 1-0 at home to FC Porto.

That snapped a run of four without defeat in the league for them.

They have strong odds on favourites to bounce back with a victory on Friday night.

Benfica are 2/5 odds on in the match outright for football betting* (odds recorded 21:11 GMT on May 11th 2022 at William Hill).

The Eagles have come up with a very good away record this season.

There has been a return of W12 D2 L2 by them on the road.

The two defeats in that sequence with at current top four sides, FC Porto and Sporting Braga.

So they do look as if they will handle themselves and get three points from this match.

But given their clear defensive strengths, Benfica to win to nil at 13/8 is the first football betting tip* (odds recorded 21:11 GMT on May 11th 2022 at William Hill).
