Porto vs Benfica Match Preview

Porto host Primeira Liga pace-setters Benfica for their Matchday 20 clash on Saturday desperate to close the seven-point gap at the top of the table, hoping to put Cup troubles behind them and impress in front of the home fans – where they’ve been very tough to cope with through most part of the campaign.

Dragons have been denied by Segunda rivals Academico Viseu (1-1) in the first leg of their Taca de Portugal clash and they’ll have a lot to do next week. This was the second time they’ve been denied in four games, after Braga (1-0) lifted the League Cup trophy with a last-gasp winner from Ricardo Horta in late January.

Benfica, on the other hand, travel to Porto on the back of a seven-match winning streak across competitions. They bagged 15 points in five league outings since early January while also beating Rio Ave (3-2) and Famalicao (3-2) in Taca de Portugal along the way, boasting great goalscoring records.

Eagles scored 16 goals in those seven games as in-form Pizzi and Carlos Vinicius led the attacking line, which promises a great challenge at Dragao Stadium. Still, conceding many goals recently will be a worry for Bruno Lage and his men could have trouble capitalizing on Saturday evening.

We will now stick our necks out for Porto to impress in front of the home fans once again and we’ll go for them to close the gap at the top of the Primeira Liga with a Home win priced at an eye-catching 27/20 with bet365.

We should be in for goals and it feels Sergio Conceicao’s men have to outgun Benfica if they’re to make it happen. With that in mind, we’re hoping for another high-scoring occasion in Porto as we go for Over 2.5 Goals FT, which comes at 11/10 with William Hill.
