FC Porto were denied three points in their recent league match against Gil Vicente away from home as they played out a 1-1 draw. However, they managed to compensate for that setback by coming from behind and snatching a 2-1 away win over second-tier Santa Clara in the quarterfinals of the Taça de Portugal.

Besides a two-match unbeaten run (W1 D1), the Dragões have typified consistency in the past weeks as they have a solitary defeat to their name in the last nine league matches (W5 D3). At home, they've been a formidable opponent, going unbeaten in six matches (W5 D1) while keeping five consecutive clean sheets.

With 49 points accumulated in 23 matches played, FC Porto sits third in the Primeira Liga standings, three points ahead of fourth-placed Braga and nine points behind their opponents in this impending encounter in first place. 

Formation: 4-2-3-1

Benfica, on the other hand, managed to clinch a commanding 4-0 home win over Portimonense SC in the league. However, they failed to build up on that momentum in the Derby de Lisboa as they succumbed to a 2-1 defeat against Sporting CP in the first leg of the Taça de Portugal semi-finals.

As Águias are currently riding high on confidence as they have gone 22 matches without defeat in the league (W18 D4) and will seek to extend that impeccable streak as they take on Sérgio Conceição's men, whom they currently maintain a two-match winning streak against. Away from home, they've avoided defeat in their last ten matches (W8 D2) and will fancy their chances of a favorable outcome.

With 58 points accumulated in 23 matches played, Benfica currently occupies the top spot in the Primeira Liga standings and has maintained a two-point advantage over second-placed Sporting CP.

Formation: 4-2-3-1

  • FC Porto have preserved five consecutive clean sheets when playing at home in the Primeira Liga.
  • Benfica are currently on a two-match winning streak when playing against FC Porto.
  • FC Porto averages 1.73 goals per game when playing at home, and Benfica averages 2.09 goals per game when playing away.

In the last 57 meetings, FC Porto have won 28 times, Benfica have won 14 times, and there have been 15 draws, with the goal difference being 77-56 in favor of FC Porto.

FC Porto understands the challenge ahead, knowing that their quest to return to victory could hit a roadblock against a team they've recently lost to twice. Nevertheless, they'll rely on their strong home performance to secure a favorable result in this match.

However, despite that, we still anticipate the away side not to suffer defeat in this one, as they've been the better side on paper in the league compared to their opponents. As such, backing them up in the double chance market to win or draw combined with the total under 4.5 should surface.
