Benfica vs Tondela Prediction & Betting tips
The Primera Liga is starting again and with Benfica Lisbon against Tondela a game is increasing that will probably be very one-sided in favor of the home side. The capital city once again fought a duel with the permanent rival from Porto at the top of the table.
The Encarnados are currently one meter behind the dragons, which is why only one victory against the underdog counts. The guests only occupy 14th place in the table, but benefit from the fact that two teams, Aves and Portimonense, are extremely weak this season, which is why the gap to the relegation ranks remains comfortable despite their own deficits.
It has not been won in five rounds, which is why any ambitions have long since been exhausted. More than one place in the no man’s land of the tableau will not pop out at the end of the season.
For the encounter between Benfica Lisbon and Tondela, the tip includes an away win in handicap -2.5. Further analyzes of games in the Portuguese House of Lords can be found in the betting base section International Football Tips.
The kick-off at the Estadio da Luz takes place at 19:15 p.m. Spectators are not allowed.
The 37-time title holder experienced a persistent weak phase before the game was interrupted. Only one win has been achieved in the past five rounds. For the claims of the record champion, this was of course an unsatisfactory record and, above all, it was too little in the title race with postage. The competitor took advantage of the hour and pushed past the Aguias.
In the direct duel at the beginning of February, Benfica also had to surrender, causing both league games to be lost to the blue-and-whites this season. Subsequently, SLB lost to third place in the table from Braga, which is why an extremely exciting title fight is emerging again in the country of the European champion.
One reason for the declining performance was the packed schedule in February and March. The team of coach Bruno Lage had to compete not only in the Primeira Liga, but also in the domestic cup and in the Europa League. The physical condition should now be better compared to the season at that time.
In the preview of the upcoming game, Benfica can also bet on the home advantage, although this is admittedly somewhat less due to the exclusion of the fans. Nevertheless, it should be noted as a factor: no less than nine out of twelve games ended victoriously on their own territory.
The first-named striker was signed by AS Monaco last summer and is currently the top scorer in the Primeira Liga scoring with 15 goals.
The 25-year-old is closely followed by his colleague Pizzi, who once scored less, but has already scored eight goals from his teammates – best in the Primeira Liga!
Given his strong performance before the interruption of the season and the more attractive quotes for scoring a goal compared to Vinicius, the odds for his next goal celebration in the match between Benfica and Tondela are also interesting.
In 2015 Tondela rose to the Primeira Liga for the first time. In the following years it was usually against relegation and the existence of a “gray mouse” in the league does not change this season.
However, the Auriverdes are far more successful abroad than at home. While the inglorious title of the weakest home team is on the top floor of Portuguese football, the appearances of the eleven around goalkeeper and captain Claudio Ramos in the guest appearances are considerably more impressive: 17 of the 25 season points were taken away!
Due to the long interruption of the season, the important defender Filipe Ferreira is fit again after surviving a thigh injury. The 29-year-old came before the season from Sturm Graz, who had loaned him out to league competitor Nacional Funchal.
At Tondela, Ferreira immediately gained a regular place on the left side of the back team.
A continuous shortcoming at Tondela is the offensive. The team lacks dangerous attacking players. This can be seen from the fact that no player in the CDT jersey could score more than two goals this season and that eleven players have already entered the scorer list, whereby two thirds have only one goal.
