Benfica vs Vitoria Guimaraes Prediction & Betting tips
Who will be the next sofa master? Paris had already become French champion after the end of the season in Ligue Une at the green table and Liverpool FC also won the title on television after Manchester City failed in Southampton.
The next sofa master could come from Portugal and will probably be FC Porto. Three games before the end of the season, an eight-point advantage would be enough if Benfica Lisbon did not win their home game against Victoria Guimaraes on Tuesday evening.
At the Estadio da Luz, guests also want to score on their own sporting drive, as an international city square is still within reach. The odds comparison of the betting base shows that the away win is rather unlikely and Guimaraes travels to the capital as an outsider. The kick-off is at 21:30 p.m. on Tuesday evening.
Benfica Lisbon lost the championship title itself. Although competitor Porto has given away a few points since the restart, the capital city club failed even more frequently and will probably have to be satisfied with second place.
Only two out of seven games since resumption of play have been won and even at the last away game in Famalicao, attacker Pizzi’s goal was not enough for a three. The late equalization was the final preliminary decision in the championship race. The team of coach Bruno Lage wants to end the season with decency.
In the premier class at the Estadio da Luz, for which there will be tips on all matches on the Champions League betting base, some exciting matches will still be played. How spectacular Benfica’s penultimate home appearance will be depends on the morale and attitude of the home side.
Between Benfica Lisbon and Guimaraes, a tip on the odds for the home win makes sense if Bruno Lage’s team builds on the performance of the last game at home. Boavista Porto was clearly beaten 3-1.
In terms of personnel, there will again be some changes in the starting eleven in the tight schedule. Carlos Vinicius or also midfield strategist Rafa Silva are candidates for an assignment right from the start. Otherwise, the coach will pay attention to the fitness status of the individual players and thus determine his formation.
The form table of the last five matchdays shows that Victoria Guimaraes has scored as many points as the upcoming opponent. Accordingly, the underdog travels to the capital with a broad chest and wants to put one leg on the favorite.
After 18 games without a win in a row, the chance this time to win against the big favorite is greater than ever. Although the hopes for the European Cup after the home defeat against Gil Vicente and looking at the table of the Primera Liga are no longer so high, the team will travel highly motivated by the coach Ivo Vieira to Lisbon.
It is primarily a question of good defensive work. 34 conceded goals are the best in Portugal after the league’s top teams and if the bulwark stops on Tuesday, Benfica Lisbon and Guimaraes can predict the outsider. Coach Ivo Vieira has been in demand as a mental coach in the past few days.
After the two late goals in injury time and the very unfortunate loss to Gil Vicente, his team has to show character. The guest trainer will certainly also make some personnel changes. However, he did not allow himself to be looked at the cards in advance.
