PORTO vs BENFICA BETTING PREVIEW 

Primeira Liga leaders Porto, who are undefeated in their last 24 home matches, were almost impeccable at the very start of the campaign but they drew against Aves last time out, a result that has allowed the two Lisbon clubs to move within touching distance of top spot. Sergio Conceicao’s men have dropped just four points this season and have also been impressive in Champions League as they could secure qualification to the knockout stage with a win over Monaco in the last round. As to direct matches, both of last term’s Classicos ended with the same 1-1 scoreline.

Jesus Corona will miss out through suspension. Tiquinho Soares started in place of Moussa Marega upfront last time. Sergio Conceição could decide to recall the Malian international, who had been in terrific form before picking up an injury joining Yacine Brahimi and Vincent Aboubakar in the front trio. Sérgio Oliveira is expected to start in midfield alongside Danilo Pereira and Hector Herrera.

Benfica enter this clash in impressive form, having taken 16 points from a possible 18 in the league. After a poor start, they lie three points behind the hosts and have won four consecutives league matches. The latest victory was a 6-0 thrashing of Vitória Setúbal on Sunday. Anyway, their defense have been shaky this season, as they have only kept one clean sheet away from home all season. Furthemore, Rui Vitoria's side have had a shambolic Champions League campaign, crashing out after losing every single match so far. Defeat here and the fans would start calling for the Manager Rui Vitoria's head because their points deficit would be deemed too much to be able to defend their league title.

Ruben Dias is still recovering from surgery so Jardel will be Luisão's partner in defense, with Andrè Almeida and Alejandro Grimaldo as right and left back respectively. In midfield, Filip Krovinovic is expected to partner Pizzi and Ljubomir Fejsa as the Eagles aim to control the ball. Up front, Jonas will spearhead the attack with Eduardo Salvio and Franco Cervi likely to play on his flanks. Gabriel Barbosa and Douglas have been left out of the team.
