Benfica – Vitoria Guimaraes Tips and Odds. July 14, 21:30 PORTUGAL: Primeira Liga – Round 32.
Benfica – Vitoria Guimaraes Preview
- Benfica’s Primeira Liga (LPFP) title hopes are all but gone after winning only one of their last four matches (D1, L2). Five of their last six league games saw both teams scoring, and they’ve netted first in 61.29% of their LPFP fixtures this season (W17, D2).
- At home, their 3-1 win over Boavista (July 4) snapped a four-match winless league run (D2, L2) and they are yet to concede a home league goal inside the opening 15 minutes this term. Nevertheless, it’s been two home LPFP games since Benfica kept a clean sheet.
- Vitória Guimarães’ Europa League qualification hopes suffered a setback when losing 2-1 to Gil Vicente (July 10), although they did net for a 12th successive LPFP game (W6, D3, L3). With no draw in four league matches (W2, L2), each of their last three such fixtures saw under 1.5 first-half goals.
- Away from home, the visitors have experienced mixed results since resumption (W1, D1, L1) with all three matches level at the break. Both teams have scored in 60% of their league away games this term, and it’s worth noting that they’ve lost the last ten LPFP renewals here as well.
- Players to watch: Benfica’s Pizzi has netted three times since resumption, and his four career league goals against Guimarães all came at home. Five of his last six LPFP goals have been his side’s first of the game.
- Dangerous for the visitors, Bruno Duarte has scored three goals in four league matches, with five of his last six strikes being Guimarães’ first of the game.
- Stat attack: Benfica are unbeaten in 80% of home league matches they entered as favourites this term (W10, D2, L3).
- A 60% majority of Vitória Guimarães’ league goals this term have come in the second half.
- Guimarães’ last two LPFP away wins have all come via a one-goal margin.
