Betting tips for Benfica vs Ferreira 05.12.2018
Benfica are level with Paços de Ferreira in the second round of Group A of the 2018/19 Allianz Cup. The "incarnates" debuted in the competition with a win in the reception to Rio Ave, while the "Beavers" tied with the Sport of the Birds.
An absolute favorite to win the group A and consequent access to the "final-four" of the Allianz Cup, Benfica face Paços de Ferreira in search of the second victory in the competition. The "incarnates" play in the Light for the second consecutive round and know that a new triumph will allow them to take a giant step towards the next phase, since, if they win, Benfica would only need a draw in the Birds on the last journey.
The pupils of Rui Vitória will compete for the third challenge in a space of two weeks and the coach "incarnate" will promote some changes in the team taking into account the proximity to the clash with Vitória de Setúbal, scheduled for next Saturday. This week, seven B and 23 sub-team athletes have been called to the main team's work, but probably none of these athletes will be part of the starting team. Mile Svilar should return to the defense of the net, the sides could take charge of Corchia and Yuri Ribeiro, with Conti in the center next to Rúben Dias. Alfa Semedo could appear in the place usually occupied by Fejsa, Krovinovic, a player who continues to gain pace, could be an option for the midfield. Expectation to gauge who will occupy the center of the attack.
The victory by four balls to zero before the Feirense served to calm the moods in the Light but the pressure is maintained and Rui Victory knows that it has no margin of error, independently of the competition.
The goalless draw in reception to Desportivo das Aves has seriously compromised the aspirations of Paços de Ferreira in the current edition of the League Cup. The "Beavers" will play in the last two rounds of the group stage outside the "Mobile Capital" and against opponents, which makes the task significantly more difficult.
A second-tier leader with 24 points, more than the Famalicão, Paços de Ferreira travels to Luz following two consecutive victories, one against Casa Pia for three balls for one, for the Portuguese Cup, and one against the Penafiel for two unanswered goals. The Estoril Praia (1-0) was the only emblem capable of imposing on Paços de Vítor Oliveira in the last ten games, this in a match that had to be a "two-stroke" match due to an interruption caused by torrential rain that fell in Amoreira.
Pacenses can be inspired by the example of Arouca to cause problems in the Light and to enjoy some relaxation of the owners of the house, although the chances of success are highly reduced. The whole of the north of the country will try to take advantage of the changes that can be guessed in the defense of the owners of the house.
Benfica have everything to win, but they do not expect a win for big numbers.
