Boavista FC will welcome Benfica to Estádio do Bessa Século XXI for a matchday 23 fixture in Portugal Liga NOS. The last meeting on 25th January 2022 ended in a 1-1 draw. Both sides have met sixteen times in the most recent seasons. Boavista FC has won 2 matches, and Benfica triumphed in 11. Recent outings average 3.25 goals, while both teams score 50% of the time.
Boavista FC’s latest fixture against Portimonense ended in an away 1-1 draw. They were not spectacular, so this result seems fair. Boavista FC set the tone early and scored in the 41st minute.
Benfica’s recent game against Santa Clara ended in a home 2-1 win. Águias dominated the game and deserved the win. Benfica pushed forward in the second half and scored in the 60th and 62nd minute.
Since the start of the season, Boavista FC is more dominant at home. They have three wins out of 11 games on home soil. As Panteras’s good defensive display is key to their success. They didn’t concede in 36% of home games.
Benfica has picked up 13 points from the previous six league games. It is quite intriguing that they prefer playing on the road. Benfica has collected 2.55 points on average per away game, compared to 2.00 at home.
The hosts will have to work hard to get a good result. Os Axadrezados has won just 27% of home games. On average they score 1.36 goals and concede 1.09 per game. Benfica won their previous away game and I expect more of the same. Their away record looks impressive.
The visitors have a better record and I have to back them. Boavista FC wins on average 1.45 points per home game. I am not sure they have what it takes to compete against Benfica. My prediction is Benfica to win.
I expect a thrilling contest with plenty of goals. Both sides score and concede on average 3 goals per game. Over 2.5 goals were scored in an average of 46% of Boavista FC’s home and Benfica’s away games. My prediction is Over 2.5 Goals.
