Our prediction for this Portugal Primeira Liga match:
The ground will shake at Estadio do Dragao when two bitter rivals Porto and Benfica face each other in O Classico. The Dragons did well to crush Vitoria Setubal 4-0 at the weekend to melt Benfica’s advantage in the Primeira Liga standings to seven points. Porto face yet another must-win situation against the Eagles, and we are positive that the hosts are going to leave their hearts on the field.
Benfica are enjoying a season to remember, with the team already setting up a couple of records. The Eagles are eyeing their 17th consecutive win in the national championship, but they should be happy with one point from the match. Benfica January signing Julian Weigl is rated doubtful (illness) for O Classico, and given the importance of Saturday’s showdown for the hosts, we believe that punters can find value in betting on the Dragons.
