Reason For Porto vs Benfica Betting Tips

  • Porto have won the last four meetings between the sides including a 2-0 victory in the Super Cup on 23rd
  • The hosts have won their last seven league games and their last five starts at Estadio do Dragao.
  • Porto have netted in all of their league matches this season, while Benfica have failed to strike in just one of their 13 Primera Liga outings.

Dragoes to Maintain Recent O Classico Dominance

Porto beat Benfica 2-0 in the Portuguese Super Cup just three weeks ago and Sergio Conceicao’s side are backed to follow-up this Friday night in the first league O Classico of the season at Estadio do Dragao.

Goals from Sergio Oliveira and Luis Diaz secured Porto’s first silverware of the campaign on 23rd December and the result also made in four consecutive victories for Dragoes over their main rivals, following their Taca de Portugal success in August and a league double last term.

While Benfica go into this contest in decent nick after claiming ten points from their last four league games, it’s difficult to envisage them turning the tables on last month’s defeat – especially considering Porto have won their last seven Primera Liga matches and their last five starts at home.

The hosts were taken to extra time by Nacional before prevailing in the Taca de Portugal in midweek, but they should still come out all guns blazing here in a game that neither team can really afford to drop points in.

Leaders Sporting are currently four points clear of these sides who are separated by goal difference only in second and third respectively – and that gap is likely to grow before kick-off here with Sporting hosting Rio Ave earlier in the evening.

It means a draw at Estadio do Dragao could well leave both teams seven points in arrears, so there’s every reason to anticipate an aggressive encounter with both teams really going for it.

Both can get on the scoresheet with Porto scoring in all of their league games and Benfica failing to fire in just one of their fixtures, so we’re tipping up a 2-1 correct score with Porto favoured to land a crucial three points
