Guimarães vs Benfica Today’s Betting Prediction
Stadium D. Afonso Henriques will stage the second meeting in less than a week From Vitória de Guimarães (5th place with 28 points) against the vice-leader with 38 points, Benfica.
Vitória de Guimaraes de Luís Castro is overtaking the worst moment of the season, having 3 defeats in their last 4 meetings, but within their strength and their faithful adept mass, it is always a hard bone to chew in their stadium, where he presents a beautiful record for the championship: only one defeat in 8 games, having won his last 4 matches played at home.
The Benfica, arrives at this match, with 3 consecutive victories. After the departure of Rui Vitóri and consequent entry of Bruno Lage to command the team, the team seems to have had a fresh air struggle and is now a more attractive football and with a different game system, as the current coach is a confident fan of the 4-4-2.
In this system, and against theoretically weaker teams, Benfica arrives with more people in the finishing zones and has a more cohesive team as a whole.
The last clash against this same Victory during the week for the Portuguese Cup, was not so good, but still presenting itself in good level in defensive processes.
Our Betting Prediction Analyzed Guimarães vs Benfica
The D. Afonso Henriques is always a difficult stadium for all the teams that pass there, but interestingly, for Benfica it is usually a stadium where it achieves good results, having an excellent record of 7 victories and 1 tie in the last clashes between these two teams in the city of Guimarães.
This and with a Benfica to improve visibly and with the aim of not letting Porto slip away in front of the championship, allied to the fact that Vitoria is in a crisis of results (trust always resents), my bet is going to, with greater or less difficulty, a victory of the foreign team.
