Benfica will welcome Moreirense FC to Estádio do Sport Lisboa e Benfica for a matchday 18 fixture in Portugal Liga NOS. The last meeting on 7th August 2021 ended in a Benfica 2-1 win. Both sides have met nineteen times in the most recent seasons. Benfica has won 16 matches, and Moreirense FC triumphed in 1. Recent outings average 3.05 goals, while both teams score 58% of the time.

Benfica's last game in the Portugal Liga NOS against Paços de Ferreira at home ended in a 2-0 win. Águias had more possession of the ball and took advantage of it. Benfica was dangerous in both halves and scored in the 45+5 and 75th minute.

Moreirense FC's previous game in the competition versus FC Vizela ended in an away 1-0 win. Although Moreirense FC countered for most of the game, it was more than enough to win. Moreirense FC was not convincing in the first-half and scored in the 59th 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.

Moreirense FC has picked up 7 points from the previous six league games. They still have a lot to prove when playing away from home. Moreirense FC wins 0.70 points per away game, a bit less than their home record shows. To improve results, they have to be more compact in defence. Moreirense FC kept a clean sheet in just 20% 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.

Os verdes e brancos (Green and white) is winless in one away game, having tasted defeat on their previous visit. However, they will need plenty of luck to avoid another one 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 0.70 points per away game for Moreirense FC. My prediction is Benfica to win.

I expect a thrilling contest with plenty of goals. Both sides score and concede on average 3.05 goals per game. Over 2.5 goals were scored in an average of 54% of Benfica's home and Moreirense FC'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 Moreirense FC's away games. My prediction is Both Teams to Score: No.
