Tip Benfica Lisbon - Tondela
Benfica are second in the Portuguese Primeira Legue and host 14th placed Tondela. At the time the suspension of the league took place, Benfica were only a point behind the league leaders. Porto play the day before this match so could be four points clear by the time this match begins. Then again, Porto might not beat Famalicao and a win for Benfica on Wednesday would take them to the top of the league. Benfica were struggling when the suspension took place. They had only won one of their last five league games and had 1 win in their last eight in all competitions. Now they can start again and try to overtake Porto and win the title. A Champions League place looks certain as they lead third-placed Braga by 13 points. Home form has seen Benfica win nine of their 12 home league games with only seven goals conceded. The revese fixture saw Benfica win 1-0 at Tondela and they'd be satisfied with that on Wednesday.
Tondela won at Benfica a couple of seasons ago but come into this game relatively safe. They are nine points above the relegation zone but have no wins in their last five league games. They have only scored 20 league goals this season with 30 conceded. Away form has produced five wins this season in the Primeira League but they have also lost five, including four of the last five. Only three goals have been scored in their last seven league games. The suggested bet here is for Benfica to win, leading at both half and full time.
