Our prediction for this Portugal Primeira Liga match:
Vizela and Benfica go head to head at Estadio do Vizela in the Primeira Liga round 9. Vizela aim to build on a Taca de Portugal win over Vitoria Setubal, and they are undefeated in the previous six games in all competitions. Brazil international Guilherme Schettine is pushing for a start after scoring as a substitute in the triumph over Setubal. The Eagles, on the other hand, experienced all sorts of problems at the back in the Champions League loss (0-4) to Bayern Munchen.
Benfica are eager to retain top position in the standings, and we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at Vizela. Even though Haris Seferovic remains in the recovery room, away win should be considered as the title-chasing capital club emerged triumphant in each of their four away games this season. In their last meeting in a competitive match Benfica defeated Vizela 2-1.
