Tondela hosts Benfica in round 21 of Liga Portugal. The match will be played on Monday, February 7th at Estádio João Cardoso (Tondela)
Tondela has slightly improved its position in the standings over the last few rounds. Given that this is a second-rate team, one defeat in the previous five matches is a very good indicator. Thanks to such results, the Yellow-Greens broke away from the 17th position by four points. I would note that Tondela plays relatively well against the giants of Portuguese football. In the current season, they have not lost to any of the top teams with a difference of more than two goals. Yes, there is nothing special to brag about, but this is also a kind of success. Considering the current good shape of the Yellow-Greens, they are capable of fraying the nerves of the Eagles in the upcoming match.

Benfica has not been involved in the fight for the league title for a long time. The Eagles are failing this season, and the maximum they can achieve in this championship is bronze medals. Benfica loses too many points, and not the team is on a certain decline. In the last round, the Reds lost to Gil Vicente at home (1-2), and there was a draw against modest Moreirense a few weeks ago. Beyond that, the Eagles limply lost to FC Porto (3-1). So far, there are no prerequisites for Benfica to start a confident winning streak. And in the upcoming game, one can hardly expect a 3-0 victory from the Reds. After all, their matches against Tondela have been difficult lately, and they beat this team only with a difference of one or two goals.
Perhaps it’s safe enough to try betting on the hosts to win with a plus handicap. Tondela is in a quite good form and has not lost to anyone for a long time. And Benfica is now not in a state to hope for major victories.
