Our prediction for this Portugal Primeira Liga match:
Estadio da Luz will host Saturday’s Lisbon derby between Benfica and Sporting. Due to their poor performances after the coronavirus break, Benfica failed to defend their Primeira Liga title, and, no doubt, they head into the last game of the season with the lack of motivation. The good news for the hosts, though, is that midfielder Julian Weigl returns from suspension. Defender Alex Grimaldo is sidelined with injury. The Lions, on the other hand, aim to cement third position in the standings, and they are likely to go for a win in the local derby.
Considering that Benfica have been anything but impressive in Primeira Liga in the second half of the season, we are tempted to put our money on the visitors. The likes of Acuna, Phellype, and Vietto are all likely to miss the game with injury for the away team.
