Portimonense vs Benfica Team News

Rooted to 17th spot on the standings, Portimonense seem a side destined for relegation. They have been so mediocre this season that they have struggled to produce positive results, leaving them deep-balls within relegation obscurity.

From 25 games, they have managed a measly 19 points and are six points shy of 16th-placed Pacos de Ferreira. You get the feeling that it will take a miracle of sorts for this side to retain their top-flight status come the end of the season.

Playing host to difficult opposition Gil Vicente on the last match-day, Portimonense turned in a performance of the highest quality, much to the delight of head coach Paulo Sergio. They matched the opposing number on all fronts, condemning them to a 1-0 defeat.

That win must have done their confidence levels a world of good as they look to revive their faltering campaign. Props to Sergio’s men for their resilience in the fixture, managing to clinch maximum points against mid-table outfit Vila Nova.

Benfica, on the other hand, were held to a goalless draw by a spirited Tondela side last weekend in a frantic encounter at the Estadio da Luz. Despite the absence of goals, the game presented a great watch for football fans all over the world.

Now at the top of the standings, the Eagles will be looking to make that spot theirs permanently. For that, they will be required to secure maximum points against Portimonense to ward off the threat of second-placed FC Porto.

Bruno Lage’s charges are sporting the best goalscoring numbers in the league having plunged home 52 goals while conceding just 14 goals in the process – fewest numbers within the cluster. These stats cement their status as the best team in the Primeira Liga as at now.

In sharp contrast, Portimonense have registered the least number of goals in the league, with only 18 to their name all season. The reverse fixture between these sides saw Benfica hammer their troubled opposition, firing four unanswered goals past them.
