Reason For Benfica vs Moreirense Betting Tips

A shock last weekend left Benfica reeling, and they surrendered their place at the top of the table. The Eagles are out to retain their title after losing it to Porto last term, but a setback at Belenenses has damaged their chances of finishing top. The Primeira Liga is an incredibly tight league, and Benfica find themselves opening up this weekend’s action in third, despite leading the way a week ago. They could jump back into top spot with a victory over Moreirense on Friday night, and the bookies have made them heavy favourites for the win.

Benfica head here following two defeats in a matter of days. They’ve enjoyed a strong start to the new season across the competitions, but setbacks in the league and Champions League of late have been a blow. Their 1-0 loss to Ajax has hurt their chances of making the last 16 in Europe, while they’re currently on course to miss out on that competition altogether next term. They’re down in third, behind Porto and Braga, and the Eagles need to up their game in order to return to Europe’s top tier competition.

Moreirense are in 10th place in the Primeira Liga, and they’ve had some decent results in this campaign so far. They have got themselves a four point cushion over the relegation places, and their main goal once again will be to avoid the drop. Meetings with the likes of Benfica can been seen as a free hit for the visitors, and of late they’ve had a pretty torrid time when they’ve met the Eagles. With 13 defeats in their previous 14 meetings against the Lisbon giants, Moreirense may fear this visit to the capital.

Benfica have managed to win to nil in four of their last five clashes with Moreirense. The hosts have already kept a clean sheet in half of their league games this term, so they can expect a quiet night at the back. The hosts have had real issues going forward, so their chances of finding the net here are slim. Moreirense have failed to score in 75% of their away trips, while they’ve lost to nil in five of their last six away league games.

Benfica haven’t exactly been scoring with ease this term, as five of their last six here have seen under 2.5 goals. The low scoring visitors should provide a similar game here, especially given that Moreirense will be looking to defend deep and keep things tight. We are tipping under 2.5 goals in this clash, which has landed in the last three meetings between these two sides.
