Benfica and Tondela face at Estádio do Sport Lisboa and Benfica (da Luz), in a match for the 25 th round of the Primeira Liga. Benfica won away by (0‑1) the last time they met in this edition of the league, on 27‑10‑2019. At this stadium, the head ‑ to ‑ head history favors the home team, since they have a record of 3 wins and 1 loss in the last 4 matches. Sure enough, the last time these teams met at this stadium, on 30‑03‑2019, in a match for the Liga Sagres, Benfica won by (1‑0). The only goal of the match was scored by H. Seferović (84 '). Although this is a game between 2nd and 13th in the general classification, it is actually a game between the 2nd classified in home games and the 6th as a visitor.
The home team is currently in the 2nd position, with 59 points won, after 19 wins, 2 draws and 3 losses. In the penultimate match, they drew at home for Moreirense by (1‑1). In the last match, they tied for Vitoria de Setubal by (1‑1). This is a team that usually achieves more positive results as a visitor than at home, since they won 31 points away, where they scored 24 goals and conceded 7, and 28 points in their stadium, with 28 goals scored and 7 conceded. In the last 10 home matches for the championship, Benfica has 8 wins, 1 draw and 1 loss, having won 25 points out of 30 possible. His attack has scored regularly, since he managed to score in 9 of the last 10 games in this competition. In 24 games in this competition, he managed to turn the score in 3 of the 8 games in which he suffered the first goal.
Benfica returns to the competition looking to regain the leadership of the qualifying table, after a cycle of five games, before the stop, for the championship, where they only won once and played very poor football. In the second position, with 59 points, Bruno Lage's team followed a point from FC Porto, who entered the field the day before. About three months ago, Benfica played last in Setúbal, against Vitória Futebol Clube, with whom they drew 1-1, in the second consecutive game in which Pizzi missed a penalty that could have been worth the three points. It was Benfica's third straight game without a win, in a cycle that started in a 3-3 draw with Shakhtar Donetsk, which cost them the elimination of the Europa League.
The visiting team is currently in 13th place, with 25 points won,
after 6 wins, 7 draws and 11 losses. In the penultimate match, they lost
away to Vitoria de Guimarães by (2‑0). In the last match, they tied at
home for Boavista by (1‑1). This is a team that usually achieves more
positive results as a visitor than at home, since they have won 17
points away and 8 at their stadium, with 7 goals scored and 15 goals
conceded at home, against 13 goals scored and 15 conceded as a visitor.
In the last 10 away matches for the championship, Tondela registers 4
wins, 1 draw and 5 losses, having won 13 points out of 30 possible. The
team has conceded goals in 8 of the last 10 matches for this
competition, so they haven't been very strong defensively. In their away
matches there is a tendency for few goals, since 6 of the last 12
matches have ended with Under 1,5 goals. In 24 matches in this
competition, he suffered the first goal 10 times and never managed to
turn the score.
Tondela had a great campaign in the first round of the Liga NOS, but fell in performance in the second round, so he reaches this 25th round of the championship in 14th place on the league table. Even so, the 25 points he added left the team trained by the Spaniard Natxo González with an advantage of nine points in relation to the relegation zone, first occupied by Portimonense. Without winning for five consecutive games, the team from Beira drew in the last round, receiving Boavista (1-1), thus breaking a sequence of three consecutive defeats against Santa Clara (0-1), Rio Ave (1 -2) and Vitória de Guimarães (0-2). The bad moment that Tondela was going through is also reflected by the fact that they have won just one of the last 11 games.
