Benfica will show no mercy at Primeira Liga strugglers Pacos tonight, reckons Tobias Gourlay

Back Benfica -1.5 & -2.0 on the Asian Handicap
Pacos Ferreira v Benfica
In the Netherlands yesterday, Feyenoord got the result they wanted and so did we. The league leaders despatched Nijmegen 2-0 to land our Win To Nil.
We're in Portugal today for the Primeira Liga game between top and bottom. Even on home turf, we think last-placed Pacos Ferreira will struggle to get anything out of league leaders Benfica.
The head-to-heads show Benfica winning 9/9 league meetings since 2017. The margin of victory has been at least two goals in all four road wins.
This term, the Beavers are a woeful W0-D2-L7 on their own patch. Benfica are W6-D1-L1 away from home. Against bottom-half teams, the margin of victory has been at least three goals in 3/4. We'll take the title chasers to win this one with something to spare.
