Benfica vs FC Porto for the Portuguese Primeira Liga championship match on Saturday at Luz Stadium.
An early classic in the championship with Benfica hosting Porto at Estadio da Luz in a match that could start to complicate the math for Porto if they lose, it would be 6 points lost with only three rounds played, a disadvantage that is recoverable but that makes everything harder.
The reds began the season in full power with two victories in two rounds, the last one with some difficulty but still a quiet triumph.
This time Benfica returns home to host Porto, which is the other squad that’s been fighting at the top of the table for the last few years, so we expect another exciting game between the two best teams in the championship.
Bruno Lage’s Benfica is one of the best “Benficas” of recent years showing massive offensive and even defensive quality and a very organized team.
Since the coach took charge of the team, Benfica has scored many goals in almost every home round of the last season.
Porto has not had an easy life this season and is beginning to live a somewhat heavy environment with some doubts about the coach and the ability of this team.
After a first-round loss in Barcelos against Gil Vicente, Porto was also eliminated from the Champions League after losing at home against Krasnodar.
Porto will go to Estadio da Luz at a complicated stage, so a more difficult match is expected than usual.
If Porto plays as they have been playing lately, they could face immense difficulties against a powerful Benfica who has “ironed” their opponents.
Given the beginning of the season and the quality between the two teams, it is difficult to escape the victory of the reds that has an interesting odd.
