Tondela
We find it in 12th place in the Primeira League and as long as it retains the relegation area it can be said that it is doing a good season.
It does not cross the best shape. He has lost three of the last five championship games.
However, last round managed a moral victory on the field of Desportivo Aves.
He has always had problems on his own ground this season and has a negative golaver.
Nuno Pedro, Pius and Osorio are absent from the host camp.

Benfica
He is the third in the Primeira League, behind the two great rivals. He can not afford the wrong steps to stay close.
Neither does it go through a very good shape. He won one match in the last four games.
He finished the Champions League group without any points. He had a shameful European job.
However, he does not lose eight championship matches.
Ruben Dias will miss you. Other flock problems are not.

Direct meetings
Four times these bands have even faced and each time Benfica won the handicap.

My tip: Tondela vs Benfica
I do not see what problems the “eagles” can face in front of an opponent in the second part of the standings. I see them able to score on the table at least twice.
There is too much difference in quality between the two teams and, in addition, Benfica is very motivated to get behind the two big rivals. Once the UCL is over, guests will treat these matches much better internally.
I rely on Benfica’s offensive force, passing two goals scored on average in the championship match.
Benfica has scored at least two goals each time in the four straight encounters with Tondela. He all won them to handicap.
