Our prediction for this Portugal Primeira Liga match:
Benfica will be aiming to keep their trophy hopes alive when they take on Farense at Estadio de Sao Luis on Sunday evening. The Eagles have already dropped too many points in the 2020/21 season, meaning that this has to go down as a must-win game for them. The capital club have no other choice but to go all guns blazing at the newcomers, and even though they head into the match following the Europa League encounter with Arsenal, away win should be considered.
Both Almeida and Jardel remain in the recovery room. Farense, on the other hand, are determined to secure the Primeira Liga survival. Jorge Costa’s troops did well to beat Nacional on the road at the weekend, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry against Benfica. Anyhow, we are tempted to put our money on Jorge Jesus’ men, who are eager to melt Sporting CP’s advantage in the standings. Brian Mansilla, who missed the Nacional game through suspension, is back to contention
