- Both teams have scored in three of the last five league meetings between these two clubs
- Moreirense have only failed to score in one of their last six matches
- Benfica have scored in all bar one of their last six matches
Benfica Can’t Afford to Lose any more Ground in the Title Race
Moreirense secured a 2-1 away win against newly-promoted Farense last time out, moving up into 8th place in the process. Benfica beat Famalicao 2-0 in their last league game but remain a fair distance behind the league leaders, Sporting CP.
Benfica have an excellent recent record against Moreirense, winning five of the duo’s last seven meetings in the Primeira Liga. Both teams have scored in three of the pair’s last five encounters and the chances of either side keeping a clean sheet this weekend look slim.
Moreirense and Benfica have both found the back of the net in all bar one of their last six fixtures, with both teams scoring in three of the host’s last six matches. Benfica’s form hasn’t been as consistent as they would have liked in recent weeks, but they have outperformed this weekend’s hosts in all departments so far this season.
We’re confident that both teams will score in Sunday’s match and have predicted a narrow 2-1 win for Benfica. The visitors have a busy schedule at the moment which is why we think this game will be closely fought, but Benfica have that extra class needed to secure all 3pts when it really matters.
