Aves – Benfica Preview
- Already-relegated Desportivo Aves have lost a horrendous 25 of their 32 league matches this term, with a league-high 12 of those defeats coming after a drawn first half. Problems have existed all over the pitch, with a league-low 0.75 goals scored per match, existing alongside a league-high 1.94 goals conceded per match.
- Although they won their last home fixture 1-0, they’ve lost 11 of their 16 home league games, albeit seven came by a slim one-goal margin. Furthermore, they’ve only scored two goals across their last eight games here, with both being struck before HT.
- Benfica also have little to play for, but do have a three-game unbeaten run to defend (W2, D1), and a 15-game unbeaten H2H streak (W13, D2 – in all competitions). They should help foster an entertaining game considering seven of their last ten league matches saw both teams score, and six of those saw goals in both halves.
- The visitors have only one win from their last five away games though (W1, D3, L1), after scoring the opener in just two. However, Benfica are the division’s best side when it comes to clawing back points after conceding first away, having done so on four of six previous occasions (W3, D1, L2).
- Players to watch: Golden Boot contender Pizzi has been Benfica’s first scorer in five of the last six league games he’s found the net. Meanwhile, Mehrdad Mohammadi netted the opener in Aves’ last home match, and the reverse fixture.
- Stat attack: Aves have lost all 11 home league games in which they conceded first.
- Nine of Aves’ last ten defeats came by a 2+ goal margin.
- On the road, Benfica have turned a joint-league high four HT draws in FT wins, and a league-high two HT losses into FT victories.
