Benfica vs FC Porto Free Betting Tips

Less efficient than in recent years, Benfica abandoned the title of Portuguese champion in favor of FC Porto precisely. Too irregular to be crowned a 3rd consecutive time, the club was satisfied with the 2nd place with 8 points behind the leader and all the same 14 lengths ahead of the 3rd. Defeated twice at the end of June, the Lisbonites recovered well by winning 4 victories in 5 days against Boavista (3-1), Famalicao (1-1), Vitoria Guimaraes (2-0), and the Desportivo Aves (0-4). Last weekend, for the last day of the championship, they ended on a good note by winning against Sporting in the derby (2-1).
For its part, FC Porto has therefore returned to success this season after 3 years of famine. The Dragons finished in 1st place in the standings, far ahead of rival Benfica, and therefore won their 29th national championship. Sergio Conceiçao’s men have also ended the season in cannonball by winning in 6 of their last 7 meetings. Lately, they have overcome Tondela (1-3), Sporting (2-0), and Moreirense (6-1). The only downside, the defeat conceded on the last day against Braga (2-1).
