Football Bet of the Day: Benfica to bash Pacos

Portugal football flag
Benfica are on track to be the pride of Portugal once more

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

  • Benfica have won 9/9 league meetings since 2017

  • Pacos have lost 7/9 at home this season

  • Back Benfica -1.5 & -2.0 on the Asian Handicap

Pacos Ferreira v Benfica
Thursday 20:15

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.
