Nacional vs Benfica Prediction and Betting Tips
- Updated: 2nd September 2018
Nacional vs Benfica – Liga NOS :Nacional and Benfica play this Sunday afternoon in Choupana
on a match of the 4th roiund of Liga NOS.
Nacional ensured promotion to the top tier of Portuguese football by finishing in 1st place with 71 points conquered, thanks to a record of 19 victories, 14 draws and 5 losses.
Their goal ratio counted with 72 goals scored and 45 goals conceded, presenting an average of 3.1 goals per match.
Their record at the Choupana was very positive only recording 1 loss on the 19 rounds they’ve played in front of their own crowd. The home side has already played 4 official matches, recording 2 victories and 2 losses.
Benfica finished in 2nd place of the Portuguese league with 81 points conquered, thanks to a record of 25 victories, 6 draws and 3 losses.
In terms of goals, they counted with 80 goals scored and 22 goals conceded, which results on an average of 3 goals per match.
The Eagles tend to get more points when they play at home, but they also present a good record as visitors.
The Eagles come into this match motivated, after having ensured qualification onto the Champions League’s group stage, on the match midweek against PAOK.
Nacional vs Benfica – Betting Tip and Prediction:
The home side has been very inconsistent when it comes to results, having lost for example at home against Moreirense, but they won on the last round at Bonfim.
Benfica right now is the Portuguese team in a better moment of form, since they not only have a richer roster than last year, but they also started their work sooner due to the European commitments.
The bigger competitive rhythm of the Eagles, as well as their bigger collective and individual quality are enough arguments to make me believe on a new victory, although the trip was traditionally hard.
Alongside with the Eagles’ victory, I also see a match with 3 goals, knowing that the “Over 2.5 Goals” line and also the “Both teams to score” line was also surpassed in all matches that Nacional has played so far.
