Portugal – Primeira Liga: Arouca vs Benfica Betting Tip

Arouca vs Benfica Betting Tip and Prediction. In the 24th round in Portuguese Primeira Liga Arouca take on Benfica.


Arouca stand near the relegation zone and their main goal is to stay in the best Portuguese football league. In the last 7 league matches home team has managed to win only once (1-2-4). They need points in order to keep chances to avoid relegation, but it will be hard to expect points in the match against leader on the table.

For this match home side will be without Nildo Petrolina (10/1 m), Miguel Oliveira (17/0 d), Pintassilgo (23/2 m) and Rui Sampaio (20/1 m).

Benfica stand at the first position and they will fight with Porto for the title this season. Porto took all three points in Braga on Friday night (0-1) and now the difference between two main candidates for the title is only one point, so Benfica have to win this one.

The visitors play amazing this season, even if they play at home or away, and without any doubt Benfica is an absolute favorite to take all three points today.

Good news for Benfica is that they have almost full squad available for this game, except César (3/0 d) and Fejsa (0/0 m), but they both didn’t play too much this season, so I’ll be free to say that they have no important absences.

Odds for away are miserable, but I believe that the visitors will finished the job in the first half-time.

Arouca vs Benfica Betting Tip: 2/2 @ 1.67 (Bet365)

FT 1-3 (HT 1-0)  Tip lost!
