Benfica600x400Benfica vs Braga – Preview and betting tips

The last 16 round of Taca de Portugal (Portugal Cup) will offer us a very interesting game between Benfica, the best team in the country right now and Braga, the most in form one. The first whistle of this game will be heard Thursday evening at 20:00.

Benfica are coming with a good moral here, consdering that they defeated their arch-rivals, FC Porto, last weekend, 2-0 away. Now Benfica have six points ahead the second place in Primeira Liga so they are in pole-position to win the second title in a row. The hosts are unbeaten in the past three months if we talk about home games, the last home defeat being on September 16th, 0-2 against Zenit in UCL.

As we said, Braga are the most in form in portuguese footbal right now, with six victories and two draws in the last eight competitive matches. In the last round, the guests managed to eliminate Guimaraes, the most surprins team in Portugal this campaign. Braga scored no fewer than nine goals in the last three away games and they managed to win all of them.

These two sides met once this season, in Primeira Liga, and Braga won that game, 2-1 in front of their own fans. Last season Benfica was the one that won both games in the league, 1-0 at home and 1-0 away as well.

Prediction: 1 @ 1.53
Bet365 offers the best odds for Benfica’s victory here and we recommend you this bet. We consider the home team a much stronger one from almost every point of view and more than that, the odds are very attractive.
