Benfica to claim an easy win

Benfica host Maritimo on Monday night with both sides needing three points to help their situations at opposing ends of the table.

Benfica are in great form and are currently on an unbeaten run of eight games, picking up 18 points in that time. It hasn’t been enough to push them into the top two and they are still chasing Porto for the second Champions League qualification place. Their five most recent wins have all been by at least two goals and they look in good shape to claim another win here.

Maritimo are currently in the relegation zone in Primeira Liga and have been struggling for much of the season. In recent weeks this has become more prevalent with the side winning just one game in their previous 10 and conceding 19 goals during that time. The relegation fight is very tight however and a win here could lift the side as high as 14th.

This match looks as though it should be quite cut and dry for the hosts with their fantastic form giving them a significant edge. With so many clean sheets in their recent games, we’re backing Benfica to put on another defensive masterclass and win this game to nil. Benfica have averaged just under two goals a game this season and that is probably an accurate picture of this game so we’re forecasting a 2-0 win for the home side.
