Benfica's latest fixture against Portimonense ended in an away 5-1 win. Benfica was very dangerous in attack, having attempted seven shots on target. Benfica was much better than Portimonense in the second half and scored in the 45+2, 50th, 64th, 73rd and 90+4 minute.

Since the start of the season, Benfica is more dominant at home. They have eleven wins out of 15 games on home soil. Águias's good defensive display is key to their success. They didn't concede in 53% of home games.

Santa Clara has picked up 5 points from the previous six league games. They still have a lot to prove when playing away from home. Santa Clara wins 1.13 points per away game, a bit less than their home record shows. To improve results, they have to be more compact in defence. Santa Clara kept a clean sheet in just 7% of their visits.

It is not a surprise that the hosts stand out as a favourite to win this one. Benfica is currently unbeaten at home in one game. Since the start of the season, they have just two home defeats.

Os Açoreanos failed to win in five consecutive away games. It will be a big surprise to turn up on Monday and win against Benfica. Furthermore, they are in really bad away form, having lost five consecutive games on the road.

I am confident that the hosts will prove their worth and triumph with another home victory. Benfica wins on average 2.33 points per home game, compared to 1.13 points per away game for Santa Clara. My prediction is Benfica to win.

I expect a thrilling contest with plenty of goals. Both sides score and concede on average 2.36 goals per game. Over 2.5 goals were scored in an average of 43% of Benfica's home and Santa Clara's away games. My prediction is Over 2.5 Goals.

Lately, there are not that many high-scoring games for both sides. I am confident that the tendency will keep going and at least one team will keep a clean sheet. A bet that both sides will score wins in an average of 54% of Benfica's home and Santa Clara's away games. My prediction is Both Teams to Score: No.
