Sporting Braga - Benfica betting tips and odds

Kickoff starts at 21:00 on 21/03/2021 played @ Estádio Municipal de Braga refereed by João Pedro Silva Pinheiro

Sporting Braga will have to put on their best performance to record a home win against Benfica. The price of 3.00 indicates a difficult battle and that’s exactly what we expect to see in this match.

Benfica will need to bring their top form if they want 3 points from this matchup – and they do. Sporting Braga are not easy pickings, although the visitors are widely seen as close favourites.

Sporting Braga are coming off from a rather disappointing 2:2 draw. They secured an early lead in an away game, but hopes were quickly dashed after Famalicão scored a second-half equaliser.

Benfica’s previous outing was a decent performance on their end. They curtly earned three points against Boavista by maintaining a lead throughout the match. The 1.33 made them huge favourites so the result didn’t come as much of a surprise.

Sporting Braga are on a bit of a streak when it comes to scoring. With more than 7 over their last 3 matches, fans are feeling fairly confident in their goal-scoring ability. Likewise, bookmakers online are fairly confident the Sunday match will yield Over 4.5 goals.

Benfica and their attackers have already shown a level of consistency so far this season, which is always good for betting. They’ve bagged more than 5 goals over the past 3 Primeira Liga matches which is definitely a thing to consider ahead of this game.

Sporting Braga are among the best-placed teams in the current standings and the leading spot seems within grasp. Considering the tough matchup expected this Sunday, however, they’ll be more worried about keeping their current position.

With a 4th spot in the standings, Sporting Braga are on their way to a Europa League qualification. It’s too early to feel safe in their position, but that also leaves room for moving up to the Champions League.

Despite their position as favourites, Benfica already lost this matchup earlier in the season. This bit of information shines a new light on the 2.38 odds which most bookies are offering for their victory.

Fortunately, none of the teams’ players has been injured or suspended recently. With their full lineups at their disposal, we’re in for an exciting match.

The 2.38 on an Away Win are obviously favourable, though it would be presumptuous to say it’s already in the bag. Still, it’s a fairly probable outcome and a good offer to take at bet365 in terms of betting value.

Betting tip (stake: 8/10): Away 2.38 at bet365
