Venue: Estádio da Luz (Lisabon)
After seeing some abysmal seasons in the past few years, normal service seems to have been restored to the Primeira Liga with both Benfica and FC Porto occupying first and second position on the log respectively.

Newly promoted FC Famalicao seem to be having the time of their life so far this season, sitting comfortably in third place right behind Porto. In truth, the minnows can easily be deemed good value for their position, thanks to their resilient and spirited approach in the league.

Benfica vs Rio Ave Team News

The home side have been totally outstanding this season; I mean the league standings clearly support that motion. Manager Bruno Lage has steered his men to a brilliant unbeaten run in 16 of their previous 20 matches across all competitions.

They have turned the Estadio da Luz into something of a fortress this year, proving difficult to defeat in 20 of their preceding 23 games. The best part of it is that 17 of these games have ended in victory for the home side.

When it comes to head-to-head encounters, the stats cannot get any better for Benfica with the Eagles maintaining a 100% unbeaten record against this opposition in all their history on this same ground. In 20 of their previous clashes, they have emerged victorious in 17 games.

Rio Ave, on the other hand, are considered huge underdogs heading into this huge game. The manager can give his players a pat on the back for maintaining a comfortable seventh place position in the league this season.

However, their recent form has been simply rotten having registered a single win from their previous four fixtures across all competitions. Also, they have just one win from their last three trips.

Benfica seem like a perfect team at the moment, balancing both attack and defense to ride smoothly to the top of the league table. They have the best defense so far in the league while their attack has been outmatched only by arch-rivals FC Porto.

Benfica vs Rio Ave Predictions

It is very difficult to see past a win for the hosts as they have had their gun blazing so far this season. Rio Ave will just try to sit back, soak in the pressure and avoid taking too many hits.

Hopefully, the visitors come out of this tie without their goal difference seeing a major offset. Their defense has to be on top form for this to be a reality.
