THE PREDICTION

Sporting Braga's five-match winning streak in the Primeira Liga was ended as they were held to a draw by Gil Vincente. That was not ideal preparation for this trip to Benfica and despite the hosts losing to Porto in their last league outing, Benfica should be able to respond by winning this.
