Reason For Boavista vs Benfica Betting Tips

  • Benfica have a 100% record on the road this season but Boavista have only lost once in their own backyard.
  • 15pts separate the two clubs ahead of kick-off and that gap is expected to increase on Friday night.
  • Four of the last six meetings between these two clubs have seen both teams score and over 2.5 goals.
  • Boavista have only scored more than one goal in two of their last six matches, while Benfica have scored at least two goals in five of their last six games in all competitions.

Benfica are yet to drop any points on the road

Benfica have won the last three meetings between these two clubs and both teams scored in four of the pairs’ last six encounters, so you can start to see why we have backed a 2-1 win for Benfica this Friday.

Boavista have lost three of their last six matches in all competitions and Benfica have won four of their last six matches in league and cup, while the hosts have only failed to score in two of their last six matches and the visitors have scored in all of their last six matches.

Boavista average 1.50 points per home game and Benfica average 3.00 points per away game, with the hosts scoring an average of 1.00 goals per home game and conceding an average of 0.67 goals and Benfica scoring an average of 2.20 goals per away game and conceding an average of 0.40 goals. Boavista’s home games produce an average of 1.67 goals and Benfica’s away games produced an average of 2.60 goals.

Boavista’s strong defensive record at home to be tested

50% of Boavista’s home games and 40% of Benfica’s away games have seen both teams score, while 60% of the visitor’s away games have also produced over 2.5 goals. Boavista have scored 6 goals at home and have only conceded 4 and Benfica have scored 11 goals on the road and have only conceded 2, adding weight to our prediction for a 2-1 Benfica victory.

Benfica haven’t failed to score away from home this season and Boavista have only failed to score in 33% of their home games, which is why we have backed both teams to score on Friday. The visitors have a Taca da Liga tie to negotiate in midweek before they can turn their attention to Friday’s match so, depending on their team selection for both of those games, Benfica might need to rotate a couple of players for the trip to Porto to face Boavista.

We’re confident that both teams will score in Friday nights’ clash and we have predicted a final scoreline of 2-1 in favour of Benfica. The visitors arrive as the clear form favourites but Boavista are enjoying a good start to the season and should make the game very competitive, which is why we have gone with a narrow 2-1 win for Benfica.
