On Thursday the 8th of February, within the quarterfinals of the Portugal Cup, Vizela takes on Benfica on their home ground. The home team is situated at the very bottom of the national league table, having suffered 4 consecutive losses, while the "Eagles" are at the very top and are in great form.

Vizela

To say that Vizela is conducting a commendable campaign in the Portugal Cup is completely deserved considering the hosts' parallel performance in the championship. Stayed at the bottom of the League table and not knowing victory for 10 rounds in a row, they will host the strongest team in the country. Ruben de la Barrera was appointed head coach in December after the sacking of Pablo Villar, but the Spaniard has failed to breathe new life into his charges.

Last weekend, "Vizela" suffered their fourth consecutive defeat, losing at home to "Vitoria Guimaraes" (0:1). Suffice it to say that the blue and whites are the absolute worst team in the Primeira Liga this season in terms of home performance: only 6 points collected in 11 meetings, having scored just 10 goals and conceded 22.
In the previous cup round, the hosts eliminated Aroca in the 1/8 finals (1:0), before defeating Estrela (2:1) and Atletico (0:1). 

Benfica

The reigning Portuguese champion and leader of the current national championship intends to compete for the title of Portugal Cup holder. Last weekend, the Eagles claimed their 7th victory in a row, not conceding even a single goal in a match against Gil Vicente (3:0) thanks to goals from Artur Cabral, Joao Neves and Rafa Silva. The Lisbon squad had no problem beating Estrela the game before (1:4).

Roger Schmidt's side had an astonishing 26 times national cup victory in its 86-year run but last celebrated success in 2017 and didn't make the final since 2021 when they lost to Braga. Incidentally, in the previous rounds of the current tournament, the capital club had prevailed over Luzitania (4:1), Famalicao (2:0), and just Braga (3:2). Benfica has won all of their last 11 matches in all competitions, except for one: after a 1:1 draw in regular time, Estoril was victorious in penalties in the League Cup. 

Head-to-Head Meetings

Vizela has never defeated Benfica in all competitions, having lost six times in the last seven encounters. The first-leg match of the current championship ended with the Eagles' victory with a score of 1:2.

Match Forecast for Vizela Vs. Benfica

The teams are diametrically opposite in the League standings, so it is not surprising that bookmakers give a clear preference to Benfica. The Eagles have the capability to compete for a victory in both national tournaments and have the strongest line-up in Portugal. I don't think the modest Vizela, which has suffered four consecutive losses, can defeat their country's grand team for the first time in their history. My prediction is a victory for the favourites with the Asian handicap -1.5.

Over/Under Prediction

Benfica is scoring 2 goals per game in the current campaign and is meeting a rival that is in deep crisis. I'm betting on the Eagle's individual total goals over 2.

Corner Kick Prediction

Benfica will have the initiative throughout the 90 minutes of the game and will win the corner kicks with the Asian handicap -2.5.

Yellow Card Prediction

Vizela will have to commit numerous fouls to keep up with the technical and lightning-fast attack of the opponent. I'm betting on Vizela winning the yellow cards.

Correct Score Prediction

I'm betting on a precise score of 1:3 in favour of Benfica.
