Portimonese is welcoming SL Benfica to Estadio Municipal de Portimao on round 26 of the Portuguese Primeira Liga.
Portimonese was in the absolutely terrible form before the season was paused and they haven’t won any of their last 9 games in the Primeira Liga. In their first match back, Portimonense was facing Gil Vincente FC at home and has had a solid game with 51% of ball possession, 2 shots on goal, 5 corner kicks, and 79% of the correct passes. Portimonense has won this game 1-0 and has won three precious points in the race to get outside the relegation zone. Portimonense is in 17th place in the standings with 19 points, only 17 scored goals, and 34 conceded goals. Portimonense is big 6 points from the safe zone, but there are still enough games left for them to try to get outside the relegation zone. Dener is the leading goal scorer for Portimonense with 4 goals, while Boa Morte and Jadson added 3 goals each. Boa Morte also added 4 assists. Portimonese is one of the weakest teams in the Primeira Liga, and no one was expecting them to be anywhere else but in the relegation zone. Defensively, Portimonese is not bad, but the lack of the offense is their biggest problem, and without that, Portimonese has a very hard task to stay in the Primeira Liga.
Benfica has taken over the top of the Primeira Liga, but barely. Benfica now has 4 straight draws, and judging by their most recent match, Benfica is not playing in a good form, especially in the attacking end. Benfica and Porto are tied at the top with 60 points, but Benfica has the better goal differential and that is why they are in the first place. Overall, Benfica is the best team in the Primeira Liga with 52 scored goals, and only 14 conceded goals. In their most recent match in the Primeira Liga against Tondela, Benfica has had 64% of ball possession, 5 shots on goal, 14 corner kicks, and 86% of the correct passes. This was a good game for Benfica, they have created a lot of chances, they were defending well, but Benfica wasn’t able to score a goal and this match has ended in a 0-0 draw. Carlos Vinicius has score 15 goals and is Benfica’s top goal scorer, while Pizzi added 14 goals. Benfica is not in a good form, but them taking over the first place will certainly have a positive impact on players and will help Benfica to get out of this dry spell. I believe that Benfica is a better team than Porto, and they have more offensive talent, and because of that, I see Benfica winning the title this season.
Portimonense is a weak team and they have won only 1 of their 9 games against Benfica. I think that Benfica finally gets all three points in this match that will help them to stay ahead of Porto in the Primeira Liga.
