Reason For FC Vizela vs Benfica Betting Tips

Vizela drew 0-0 at home to Sao Martinho last time out and sit three points clear at the top of the Serie A section of the Campeonato de Portugal, while Benfica claimed a 2-1 win away at Santa Clara in their last match before the international break.

All of the stats suggest that we could see both teams score in Saturday’s cup tie and we have backed Benfica to run out 3-1 winners.

These two sides met in 2017 for a Taca da Liga tie in Lisbon which saw the hosts Benfica claim a comfortable 4-0 win but Vizela head into Saturday’s lastest encounter as the form favourites with five wins and a draw from their last six matches. Benfica are also in good form as you would expect from the league leaders, picking up five wins and suffering one defeat from their last six outings.

Obviously, Benfica have the much stronger of the two squads but also have a Champions League tie following this match and will be expected to heavily rotate their squad for the trip to Vizela. Vizela have scored in five of their last six matches but have only managed to keep one clean sheet during that period, while both teams have scored in three of Benfica’s last six games in all competitions.

Over 3.5 goals were produced in three of Vizela’s last five matches as well as in two of Benfica’s last four outings, making our final score prediction of 3-1 look even more realistic. Benfica average over two goals per game away from home in the Primeira Liga this season, so shouldn’t have too much of an issue scoring three goals against a side sitting two divisions below them. Both teams have scored in 40% of Benfica’s away games in the Primeira Liga and if they do rotate their squad as expected then Vizela’s chances of getting on the scoreboard will also increase.

We’re confident that both teams will score in Saturday’s cup tie and we have predicted a final scoreline of 3-1 in Benfica’s favour. The visitors are the clear choice to win the game as their side is packed with international players and they play two divisions above their hosts. However, a heavily rotated squad will even the playing field somewhat and with the hosts flying high in their respective division and scoring on a regular basis, we believe both teams will score on Saturday.
