Worth Mentioning

The outcome of their latest encounter was a win for Porto, with the score of 1:0 away from home. The two clubs faced each other on the 7th of May 2022. Porto are currently on a streak of three consecutive wins and have not tasted defeat in the last eight matches. Playing on home ground had little effect on the outcomes of the previous 10 meetings concluding in 4 home victories and 4 away triumphs. As many as 2 of the previous 10 meetings clashes ended in a draw. As many as three of the previous five games saw both sides hitting the back of the nets and two finished with over 2.5 goals. Over that stretch of time the Eagles did not succeed in keeping any clean sheets and the Dragons limited their rivals to no goals in two. The preceding five encounters ended with as many as 12 goals.

Porto’s last game ended in a win when visiting versus Anadia with the score after the final whistle being 0:6. They are on a streak of five wins and have been unbeaten for the last six matches they played.

Only 1 of the outfit’s most recent 10 clashes finished in a draw. Of their last five meetings, three resulted in over 2.5 goals and one had both sides scoring.

Benfica previously faced Caldas on Saturday and the final score was a 1:1 stalemate away from home. The club is currently unbeaten in ten games, recording four draws and six wins in the process. Playing at home turned out to be of little help across the ten previous Benfica meetings as the hosting party recorded 4 victories and the travelling sides registered 2 triumphs. One of Benfica’s five previous clashes finished with more than 2.5 goals and all bar one saw both sides finding the net. Benfica managed to prevent their opponents from scoring on one occasion and they failed to net goals on their own in only one of those encounter. During the team’s recent five outings, the goalkeepers had to pull the ball out of the nets 12 times altogether.
