TODAY'S BEST BET | DECEMBER 30
We’re heading to the Liga Portugal for today’s best bet as heavyweights FC Porto and Benfica square off in a top-of-the-table showdown.
Depending on Sporting’s result, Porto could have the opportunity to rise to the top of the ladder if they claim all three points, while Benfica are four points behind and need to win in order to keep pace.
Porto are unbeaten in the league this season with 13 wins and two draws from their 15 games, while Benfica have suffered two defeats.
We’re backing Porto to emerge victorious in front of their own fans on Thursday night.
Porto are a perfect seven wins from seven at home this season, scoring 19 goals in the process and conceding just three.
Meanwhile, Benfica have won just two of their last seven away games in all competitions.
Furthermore, Porto defeated Benfica 3-0 at home last week in the Taca de Portugal despite playing almost all of the second half with 10 men.
Benfica have found it tough going in away matches to Porto over the last decade, winning just two such matches since 2011.
Porto’s defence is as strong as ever, with their last five wins in all competitions coming to nil. Adding in home ground advantage should see Porto come away with another three points on Thursday.
