Benfica vs Aves PredictionBenfica welcome basement club Desportivo Aves to the Estadio da Luz for a crunch Primeira Liga, in what is expected to be a one-sided encounter in Lisbon. The league leaders should not even have to break a sweat to clinch maximum points against this foe.
Match status: 2019/20 Primeira Liga - Matchweek 16
Kick-off:
Venue: Estádio da Luz (Lisbon)

Aves have been awful so far this season, managing a measly six points from a possible 45. Having secured only two wins in fifteen games so far, they are easily the worst side in the league, without a doubt.

With caretaker manager Nuno Manta Santos now at the helm, the club’s supporters will be hoping the Portuguese tactician can salvage their side’s faltering campaign.

Knowing fully well that getting a result against this high-flying Benfica side is almost impossible, the visiting contingent will focus on their defense, as they look to avoid taking too many hits against the Eagles.

Benfica vs Aves Team News

Benfica, as expected, are currently topping the Primeira Liga charts having garnered 42 points from 15 games so far. They have been heads and shoulders above every other team in the cluster, FC Porto proving the only worthy challengers.

Four points clear at the summit of the table, the Eagles will fancy clinching maximum points against struggling Aves and grabbing a couple of goals in the process. Their attackers will already be licking their lips at the prospect of facing this troubled club.

Last time out, the reigning champions saw off Guimaraes via a narrow 1-0 win on the road. The score-line suggests a tough encounter in Guimaraes, but truth be told, Bruno Lage’s men were totally rampant all through the ninety minutes.

The home side have lost only a single game all season and have maintained an unbeaten status in their last ten games across all competitions.
Also, Benfica have turned the Estadio da Luz into something of a fortress this season, having admitting defeat just once in eight games on this ground. Their attackers have also had their guns blazing here, having registered 22 goals in those 8 games. 

Aves, on the other hand, were on the end of another defeat on the last match-day with struggling Santa Clara condemning them to a 1-0 defeat.

The visiting contingent are yet to taste success on the road this season, with all their away games ending in defeat. They have been so mediocre on the road, that they have conceded a whopping 22 goals while scoring just 8 all season.

With a massive 36 points separating these two sides on the standings, Benfica are sure-fire favorites to roar to victory in this one. They should prove too strong for their opponent who have struggled to grind out results this season.

I doubt we will be seeing any Aves supporter out there in the stands, as they do not need to watch a disgraceful loss first-hand. They would rather watch it from the comforts of their home.

Injured or Suspended Players:

Benfica: Jardel, Jota, Adel Taarabt.

Aves: Andrej Simunec.

Benfica vs Aves Predictions

Frankly, there is no need beating about the bush about who is going to win or lose this game. Even non-football fans will back Benfica for a comfortable win against Aves.

Aves nicking something away from this fixture will require something out of the ordinary, perhaps an enchanting magic.

For this fixture, expect a stroll in the park for the home side, with the Benfica attackers grabbing a couple of goals before the end of the game.
