Our prediction for this Portugal Primeira Liga match:
Aves and Benfica face each other in a David-vs-Goliath clash at Estadio do CS das Aves. The hosts have collected only 17 points from possible 96, and, as a result, they will compete in the Portuguese second tier next term. The rock-bottom side experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 3-0 loss to Santa Clara, and they face yet another uphill task against Benfica.
Despite beating Guimaraes 2-0 in midweek, the Eagles failed to defend their Primeira Liga trophy. The capital club have been performing below expectations after the coronavirus break, but they are definitely capable of beating the out-of-sorts hosts. Even though Benfica boss Nelson Verissimo is likely to mix the squad against Aves, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the away team. Aves defender Oumar Diakhite returns to the starting XI after missing the Santa Clara game through suspension.
