Benfica entered the new season in the best possible way. Without too much trouble, they secured an appearance in the group stage of the Champions League. At the same time they managed to reach the leading position in the domestic championship.
In 4 matches so far, they have scored 11 and conceded 2 goals, which shows enough that they are a very harmonious team with equal offensive and defensive qualities.
However, in the last round, they conceded 2 goals at home to the worst team in the league, and that must have been a serious warning to me that they must not relax even against big underdogs.
Benfica has too many quality players in their team to make the same defensive mistakes twice in a very short space of time. We believe that this time the defensive segment of the game will be at a much higher level.
Vizela Team News
The visiting team cannot boast of their previous performance. Vizela played 4 games and got 4 points, which was enough for the 12th position in the table.
Bearing in mind that Ferrerira, Maritimo and Santa Clara are “falling apart”, the Vizela team should not have major problems in securing survival in the league.
They scored and conceded 4 goals each so far, and apart from the match against Porto, they did not have a serious opponent. They have very questionable offensive potential, so they would certainly be more than satisfied with one point won.
This is precisely why we believe that the players of the visiting team will try to slow down the rhythm of the match as much as possible, because if they accept the opponent’s rhythm, they will face disaster.
24.10.21 LP Vizela – Benfica 0:1
Benfica will play against Maccabi Haifa in a few days, so this will be the last preparation before that match.
Just 3 days ago, the home team conceded 2 goals against the weakest team in the league in a very stupid way. It’s clear that better opponents will punish such defensive mistakes much more harshly.
So, We expect the reaction of the home team’s defensive line. Also, we believe that Benfica will fully control the situation on the field this time, and in such a balance of forces, we don’t give too many chances to Vizela’s team.
Prediction: Vizela Under 0.5 goals
