CD Nacional will welcome Benfica II to Estádio da Madeira for a matchday 18 fixture in Portugal LigaPro. The last meeting on 9th August 2021 ended in a Benfica II 5-0 win. Both sides have met five times in the most recent seasons. CD Nacional has won 2 matches, and Benfica II triumphed in 2. Recent outings average 3.20 goals, while both teams score 40% of the time.

CD Nacional's last game in the Portugal LigaPro against CD Feirense at home ended in a 2-1 win. Os Alvinegros had more possession of the ball and took advantage of it. CD Nacional outplayed CD Feirense in the second half and scored in the 5th and 72nd minute.

Benfica II's recent game against Porto II ended in a home 1-2 loss. Águias had plenty of possession, but not so much in the final third of the pitch. Benfica II deserved to score in the second half and did so in the 51st minute.

Since the start of the season, CD Nacional is more dominant at home. They have five wins out of 9 games on home soil. Although CD Nacional is among the most solid home teams in the league, they are far from perfect. Their defence is not as good as expected with just 22% home clean sheets.

Benfica II has picked up 10 points from the previous six league games. It is quite intriguing that they prefer playing on the road. Benfica II has collected 2.11 points on average per away game, compared to 2.00 at home.

It is hard to choose a favourite in this one. Both teams look evenly-matched and have their strengths. I am not willing to take a risk and prefer a double chance bet. My prediction is CD Nacional or Draw.

Both sides are dangerous going forward. CD Nacional has scored in 89% of home games. Benfica II is a decent match and has scored in all away games. My prediction is Both Teams to Score: Yes.
