- Benfica have won nine of their 12 home league games this season.
- Tondela have lost four of their last five away league matches.
- Tondela have only scored three goals in their last seven league games.
- Tondela have won one of their last ten league fixtures.
Benfica are second in the Portuguese Primeira Legue and host 14th placed Tondela. They were only a point behind the league leaders. Porto play the day before this match so could be four points clear by the time this match begins. They might not beat Famalicao and a win for Benfica on Wednesday would take them to the top of the league. Benfica had only won one of their last five league games and had 1 win in their last eight in all competitions.
Tondela are nine points above the relegation zone but have no wins in their last five league games. They have only scored 20 league goals this season with 30 conceded. They have also lost five, including four of the last five. Only three goals have been scored in their last seven league games. The suggested bet here is for Benfica to win, leading at both half and full time.
