SL Benfica vs CD Tondela

It is an enormous opportunity for Benfica to return to the top of the table in this one. On their Primeira Liga return, rivals Porto lost 2-1 to surprise package Famalicao, meaning the Dragons remain just one point above the hosts. However, the Eagles were in disappointing form before the enforced break after a blitzing start to the season. Just one win in their last five league matches saw them hand the top spot to Porto. Their opponents, Tondela, will need to be wary of falling into relegation, with one win in their last 11. The hosts should get this done, but be wary of what happened to Porto last night.”

Can Benfica capitalise on Porto’s dropped points?

The Eagles started the season in dominant fashion. They won 18 of their first 19 Liga NOS games this season, only losing to Porto in that run. Since then, they have only managed one win in their last five. Porto did the double over them, two results that could come back to bite Benfica if they came short of another Liga NOS title.

The stats look strong for the hosts going into this one. They have the second best home record in the league, picking up 2.33 home PPG. They have kept it tight at the back, with only seven home goals conceded and keeping seven home clean sheets this season. However, they have conceded the first goal in four of their last five games.

Tondela to follow Famalicao’s upset?

The Gold and Greens may need to put a small run of results together to guarantee their Liga NOS safety. A win last night for Portimonense, just their third this season, shows form can go out the window after an enforced break. They do not have to fear Benfica in this one, a side they have only defeated once in the last nine attempts.

The stats are not looking too good for the visitors. Tondela have won one of their last 11 Liga NOS matches. However, Tondela travel much better away from home, having only picked up one home win all season. Five away wins and two away draws shows they can get a result on the road. They have a 1.42 away PPG, impressive for a side in 14th position.
