    Benfica sold out its stadium for the opening game (today, 21h30 GMT). The crowd will be pumped after beating Sporting 5-0 and Rafa Silva is a joy to watch. Worth giving a look if you have the time.

    Gil Vicente 2-1 Porto.

    Gil Vicente played the 3rd division last season. Got promoted due to a court decision. Nice start.

    How do you see this game going ? It is on my shortlist for goals ( over 2.5 is odds against which seems a bit big to me). However I doubt I will bother as I am involved in another game at the minute.

    Confident of a good Benfica victory or do you think it will be tight ?

    I'd be very surprised if either team manages to get a comfortable win. We (Benfica) are slight favourites but no more than 55-45 I would say.

    Since taking over Bruno Lage (Benfica manager) achieved 20W and 1D in 21 league games, including a 2-1 win against Porto away. Nevertheless, Porto is usually very competitive and always brings a challenge.

    How many goals between the teams would you guess at then ?

    Last 5 years (Benfica x Porto, Estádio da Luz):
    2014/15: 0 goals
    2015/16: 3 goals
    2016/17: 2 goals
    2017/18: 1 goal
    2018/19: 1 goal

    This year things can be a bit different because Benfica has a very young defence (19 y / 22y / 22y / 23y) and Porto is starting 3 new players in the back 5 (the GK, the RB and one of the CBs). I would not bet on it.

    Thank You Luz.

    I am still thinking over 2.5, however I am going to play it safe and go over 1.5. Hopefully both for Benfica :50:

    0-2. Porto the better team by a mile today.

    Both teams with 6 points.
