Benfica should crush top-flight newbies

Benfica celebrate winning the Portuguese Super Cup
1 of 1

Freesports, from 7pm Friday

Feirense v Sporting 7pm
Sporting have got off to the perfect start in the Primeira Liga with four straight wins and embellished that by seeing off Steaua to make the Champions League group stage.

However, Feirense are unbeaten in nine in the league (including four in a row this term) and beat Sporting 2-1 on home soil in May.

Recommendation
Both teams to score
2pt 6-5 bet365, Hills, Paddy Power

Key stat
Sporting found the net in their last 15 away league matches.

Benfica v Portimonense 9pm
Segunda Liga champions Portimonense have lost three in a row after winning their top-flight opener.

That doesn't augur well for a trip to the capital where Benfica are pretty much unbeatable.

A new strike force of Haris Seferovic and Jonas have eight goals between them in four games and the hosts should overwhelm the newcomers.

Recommendation
Benfica & over 2.5 goals
3pts 8-13 Coral

Key stat
Benfica have won 22 and drawn the other three of their last 25 home league games.
