- Benfica won 5-1 when these two sides met in August
- The hosts have won both games this season, scoring seven goals in the process
- Farense have failed to score in their opening two games
Farense’s return to the top-flight hasn’t gone to plan, with the visitors losing both matches so far. The away side haven’t even scored a goal in their first two games since promotion, so there’s little faith in them getting anything from this clash with Benfica.
The hosts have claimed two wins from two so far, hitting seven goals in those games. They warmed up for the campaign with a 5-1 friendly victory over Farense and they look set to add to that here, after hitting 2.2 goals per game before their summer spending spree.
Benfica are already setting their stall out for a title challenge and we expect them to win this clash comfortably to maintain their winning start. We’re backing a victory for Benfica with a -2 handicap in this clash, with a 4-0 win for the hosts our correct score after Farense’s failings up front.
