Our prediction for this Portugal Primeira Liga match:
Benfica will be aiming to melt Sporting CP’s advantage in the Primeira Liga standings when they welcome Ferreira at their Estadio da Luz on Sunday evening. Benfica did well to beat Maritimo on the road in their last league fixture, with the team quickly making amends for back-to-back defeats to Boavista and Braga. The Eagles are determined to defend their Primeira Liga title, but they need to keep on improving their game if they are to meet the goal.
Ferreira, on the other hand, have been in a fine form of late, with the team recording a win in each of their previous three league fixtures. Boss Pepa is doing a great job with Os Castores, but Benfica are likely to pose a much bigger threat for the visitors than their previous rivals. Benfica do not suit Ferreira, and it has to be noted that the Eagles emerged triumphant in each of the last five meetings between the two teams.
