Date: on the 11th of January, 2019 (Friday)
Match start: 20:00 (GMT+1)
Tournament: the Primeira Liga.
On Friday evening the 17th round of the Primeira Liga will be opened by two parallel meetings: the one will be held between the mid level team Santa Clara and Benfica which takes the 3rd line.
The irony is but the team from the Azores will be happier to play away match with the team from Lisbon. The team from the Azores was losing in 4 last home matches and for the whole season the team has lost 5 times on home stadium, having gained 2 victories and tied one match.
Santa Clara is missing more goals on home stadium than any team in the Primeira Liga and that is why we are sure that Benfica will score the goal on Friday evening.
With that, don’t wait that the hosts will be shy or coward.
4 home fiascos in a row is not a good sign but it is enough to look at the results of these failures (Santa Clara has lost to Sporting, Porto and Tondela and has lost to Belenenses with the score 2:3).
It is clear that Benfica won’t have an easy time.
Also the fact that the team from Lisbon, though winning in away matches, are making regular mistakes as it happened with Belenenses and Portimonense (0:2).
Perhaps, the guests will win, but the hosts won’t let them win with the large advantage.
