Elsewhere, Benfica defeated Belenenses at home, and the score-line was 3-2 in favor of the hosts. It was their sixth win in row. The team has been on fire for the whole of the season, and to be frank, they seem favorites to lift the title at the end of the season once again.

The two teams have been tearing the league apart in regards to goals. From their combined 38 matches so far, these two have fired in a total of 88 goals. It needs to be mentioned that only two of the remaining teams in the roster have even scored a total of 30 goals till now.

FC Porto vs Benfica Predictions

In this battle for the crown of Portugal, either squad will give their best on the pitch, and this really is the perfect recipe for a goal-fest. Likely, the BTTS bet as well as the Over 2.5 Match Goals bet should bring in huge returns this Saturday.

Going on, Porto had inflicted the only loss for Benfica this league season, and in fact, that match proved to be the only one where the latter had dropped points. Which means, if not for that fixture, Benfica would have won all 19 of their 19 league games so far.

As such, Benfica will be particular to not let Porto pull the double over them, and they know a win this match-day would practically seal the title. Consequentially, expect Benfica to avoid a loss this Saturday.
