Estoril vs Benfica Betting Tip and Prediction

Estoril vs Benfica – Liga NOS: Benfica’s loss at home against FC Porto jeopardized their objective of winning the 5th consecutive league title
Objective that was already looking so close, when they got into 1st place and would host the title match, at their stadium, but that now looks so distant.
It isn’t just the 2 points of advantage that FC Porto has, with 4 rounds to go, but also a schedule that seems to be nicer for the Dragons, taking into consideration that the Eagles will still have to play in Alvalade.
But, one thing at a time. Benfica travels to Estoril, where they will face an afflicted team looking for points to make sure they avoid relegation.
Benfica’s state of mind won’t be the best, but Rui Vitória’s team doesn’t have much more options other than invoking the qualities that have took them until the top of the league in the last couple of weeks.
They need to have offensive organization ability, width and talent to discover on their top goal scorer the path to make a difference. To do that, the return of Jonas might be a great contribution.
For Estoril, there are reasons for concern, although the 4 points conquered on the last 2 matches, on a draw with Marítimo and a victory over Portimonense, allow them to face this final stretch with some confidence.
The match against Benfica is the toughest one remaining, although the home side still has to visit Aves and Feirense, besides hosting Vitória de Setúbal, all teams that are yet to make sure they avoid relegation.
Estoril vs Benfica – Betting Tip and Prediction:
The last couple of weeks have shown that Estoril might have had game to be on a different position, but they lack conditions for us to imagine them beating Benfica, unless the Eagles are affected by the loss suffered last week.
That way, the favouritism is on the side of Benfica, on a match where Estoril will do everything to try and snatch a point..
