Benfica – Boavista : Preview & Prediction
Benfica and Boavista will face the 23rd round of the NOS League next Saturday, from 18:15, at the Estádio da Luz, in a meeting that marks a return of Jorge Simão at the head of the technical command of the chess players. The Eagles arrive in this round in second place, with 53 points, 23 more than Boavista, who is sixth. The incarnated set comes from two consecutive victories, having defeated Portimonense in the last round by 1-3, with Argentina’s Cervi proving decisive for the triumph of Lisbon. Boavista have received and beat Vitória de Guimarães by a zero point, and are now in a position that allows them to dream of a possible qualification for the next Europa League. Jorge Simão, curiously, made his debut as Boavista coach exactly on September 16 of last year, when the chess players faced Benfica at Bessa, winning 2-1. This will be a significant meeting for both teams, with Benfica wanting to take the best this time to continue the Portuguese title race.
In four of Benfica’s last five games at his home stadium there were over 2.5 goals.
Boavista conceded goals in four of their last five away games.
Benfica is the best attack of the Liga NOS, with 55 goals scored in 22 matches.
In three of the last five clashes between them at Estádio da Luz there were more than 2.5 goals.
Benfica want to make up for the snub in the first round. At home, the Eagles are always a team that has several opportunities to reach the goal, with a very large volume of offensive play, and so we believe a duel with more than 2.5 goals.
