Our prediction for this Portugal League Cup match:
Estadio da Luz will host the Taca da Liga clash between Benfica and Guimaraes. The Eagles aim to build on a 5-0 win over Vilafranquense, and they must be high on confidence ahead of Wednesdays’ clash. It is well known that Jorge Jesus wants to win everything, and we predict that the Portuguese giants will go all guns blazing at Guimaraes. The visitors failed to impress in the Taca de Portugal loss to Santa Clara, and it is no wonder they are seen as underdogs in the Portuguese League Cup quarter-final.
A man to watch in the home team will be Haris Seferovic, who scored a brace in the 5-0 win over Vilafranquense. In their last encounter in Lisbon Benfica outplayed Vitoria Guimaraes 2-0, which is yet another reason why we are tempted to put our money on the Eagles this time out.
