Competition: Primeira Liga
Market: Benfica win to nil
Odds: 3/5 @ Bet 365
Looking to widen their buffer at the top of the Primeira Liga standings, Benfica will host a struggling CD Aves on Friday night.
Starting with the hosts, continuing on what has been a stellar run of form, Benfica now find themselves as a favorite with the bookmakers to retain their Primeira Liga crown. In their 15 matches this season, they have recorded 14 wins, against just a sole defeat, scoring 38 and conceding just five in return. Holding a four-point buffer at the top of the table, the Reds also hold both the best attacking and defensive record in the division. As for their recent run of results, Benfica have won their last 12 Primera Liga matchups on the bounce and they have also conceded just a single goal in their last four victories.
As for the visitors, continuing on what has been a woeful run of form, CD Aves remain firmly in a battle at the foot of the Primeira Liga standings. In their 15 matches this season, they have recorded just a pair of victories against 13 defeats, scoring 15 and conceding 31 in return. With a points tally of just six, CD Aves already sit nine points adrift at the foot of the table. As for their recent run of results, Friday’s guests have lost 13 of their last 14 appearances and it should also be noted that they have failed to find the net in back-to-back matchups. Even more worrying, Aves have lost each of their last 15 away matches across all competitions.
