Home » Benfica vs FC Porto prediction: Portuguese Primeira Liga match on 07/05/2022

FC Porto could be crowned champions of Portugal this weekend. To secure the title, they need an away win against archrivals Benfica, who have a six-point lead over Sporting Lisbon with two matchdays to go.

Primeira Liga preview

It seems to be only a matter of time before Porto are confirmed as champions of the Primeira Liga, as they have a six-point lead over Sporting Lisbon with only two games left to play. Sporting would need to lose both of their remaining games this season and also close a 16-goal gap to pull off the most unlikely of shocks and win the title in Portugal’s top division.

Porto’s season has taken a bit of a damper, as a couple of weeks ago their unbeaten record in the Portuguese top flight came to an end. This is the only defeat Porto has suffered in 32 league games this season. That defeat came away from home, when they were narrowly beaten 1-0 by Braga. However, they got back on the winning track in their last match as they claimed a 4-2 home win over Vizela. Mehdi Taremi scored two goals in that victory, while Chancel Mbemba Mangulu and Evanilson also scored.

Benfica would love nothing more than to delay the inevitable this weekend against their bitter rivals. They go into this game third in the table, and their spot in the Europa League is also assured. More than second place is also out of the question for Benfica this season, as they are eight points behind Sporting Lisbon with just two games left to play.

Benfica has been in excellent form for at least the last four games, as they have won three times and drawn only once in that period. After a 0-0 draw against Famalicao in their last home game, they were able to win away against Maritimo last time out. Dawin Nunez continued his excellent season with the only goal after just two minutes.

Benfica Vs Porto H2H

Porto has dominated this game in recent years, as they are unbeaten in five games against Benfica. They have won three in that time, but their only away win against Benfica came in August 2019. Benfica’s only home win against Porto in their last seven games was a 1-0 victory in October 2018.

Benfica Vs Porto prediction

Porto’s excellent record in this game could be the deciding factor, and it’s hard to bet against them taking the title in this game on Saturday. They could do it with an impressive performance and I could see them winning an entertaining game 2-1.
