Benfica will welcome Paços de Ferreira to Estádio do Sport Lisboa e Benfica for a matchday 17 fixture in Portugal Liga NOS. The last meeting on 19th November 2021 ended in a Benfica 4-1 win. Both sides have met twenty-three times in the most recent seasons. Benfica has won 20 matches, and Paços de Ferreira triumphed in 1. Recent outings average 3.09 goals, while both teams score 43% of the time.

Benfica's latest fixture against Porto ended in an away 3-1 loss. I expected more from Benfica. The lack of focus in the final third cost them three points. Benfica was more dominant in the second half and scored in the 46 minute.

Paços de Ferreira's recent game against Santa Clara ended in a home 2-1 win. Paços de Ferreira dominated the game and deserved the win. Paços de Ferreira pushed forward in the second half and scored in the 69th and 82nd minute.

So far, Benfica plays better on the road than at home. They win 2.50 points per away game on average compared to 2.11 points at home. Although Benfica 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.

Paços de Ferreira has picked up 8 points from the previous six league games. Paços de Ferreira don't feel the pressure of playing away. So far, they earn an average of 1.00 points per game, both home and away. To improve results, they have to be more compact in defence. Paços de Ferreira kept a clean sheet in just 33% 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 three games. Since the start of the season, they have just two home defeats.

Paços de Ferreira failed to win in two consecutive away games. It will be a big surprise to turn up on Sunday and win against Benfica.

I am confident that the hosts will prove their worth and triumph with another home victory. Benfica wins on average 2.11 points per home game, compared to 1.00 points per away game for Paços de Ferreira. My prediction is Benfica to win.

I expect a thrilling contest with plenty of goals. Both sides score and concede on average 3.07 goals per game. Over 2.5 goals were scored in an average of 50% of Benfica's home and Paços de Ferreira'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 57% of Benfica's home and Paços de Ferreira's away games. My prediction is Both Teams to Score: No.
