Tip Benfica Lisbon - Porto
Benfica are set to host FC Porto in a round 31 clash in the Primeira Liga, a match that will have a huge impact on the league title race. Porto, the closest to league leaders Sporting, have so far managed 70 points while third placed Benfica are on 66 points. A Benfica win will propel their top two ambitions, as that’s what they need to go straight into the Champions League. That will also mean an end to the already slim title ambitions for Porto. Benfica are coming from a 2-0 win away to Tondela, their third straight win in the league but the first clean sheet in four. They’ve scored two goals or more in four of their last five matches and Haris Seferovic has been key here, with four goals to extend his tally for the season to 18. Benfica have suffered one loss in the last 10 league matches, winning the remaining nine and scoring two or more in eight of the 10. They’ve suffered just two losses at home in the 15 league matches played, and won 11. In the January meeting between these sides, they drew 1-1.
Porto have not lost any of their last five matches against Benfica – they have four wins and a draw, and have only lost once in seven. They have scored at least twice in four of the last five meetings and will be looking to keep their title hopes alive with a win here. Mehdi Taremi was sent off in the earlier meeting between these two sides, in January. He will be hoping to leave a better mark this time, going to this game with four goals in the last five matches. Porto are coming from a 3-2 win over Famalicao, the first time in four matches that they’ve managed to score more than a goal in the league. They haven’t lost in 24 league matches and their away form in the league has also been great, going unbeaten in the last 12 matches. Porto have nine wins in the 12 away league games.
