THE PREDICTION

Not only is O Clasico perennially massive, this one could decide which of the two will legitimately challenge Sporting; neither can win the league nor go top but one might be prematurely viewed as out of the race. The home side come into this on the back of an unexpected and unwanted extra time victory over Nacional in midweek in the cup whilst Benfica rotated and ran out comfortable 4-0 victors away at Estrela Amadora. Porto’s games this season have averaged nearly four per game whilst, even though slightly less, Benfica have had their games average over three, still. A result seems difficult to call given that both sides are level on points with identical win-draw-loss records but over 2.5 goals seems like a reasonable bet considering the aforementioned goals per game averages.
