Benfica vs Guimaraes Prediction & Betting tips
This Friday begins the season in the Primeira Liga de Portugal, and so in the Da Luz Stadium in Lisbon, a candidate for the title as Benfica is waiting for the visit of Vitória Guimarães.
Despite closing their preseason games with defeats against Juventus of Italy and Olympique Lyon of France, those led by Rui Vitória debuted with the right foot in their first official game, the same one that was disputed midweek when they faced the Turkish cast Fenerbahce for the first leg of the third round of the UEFA Champions League, game that won by the minimum difference thanks to the goal of Franco Cervi with 20 minutes remaining.
Now, because the rematch of this series will be played midweek, it is very possible that Rui Vitória decides to make some changes in the stellar eleven, but despite this the Eagles are forced to debut with a win.
On the other hand, those led by Luis Castro made good presentations in their friendly games where they were undefeated in their five games ending four of them with victories.
Unfortunately in his first official game things did not go as expected and he was defeated at home 0-2 by Tondela and with that they were eliminated from the Taca da Liga, so this Friday they hope to take advantage of the fact that the eagles have their minds on their participation in the UEFA Champions League, although he needs to make corrections in defense since they have received two goals in each of their last three games.
As for direct confrontations, it is Benfica who has led the series, so the eagles come to win the last nine direct games and does not lose to Vitória Guimarães thirteen games where twelve ended in victories.
At home Benfica has a record of 20 wins in 29 games against Vitória Guimarães and this Friday he will want to maintain that supremacy.
