Given that Varzim is currently competing for survival in LigaPro, the club has undoubtedly experienced better times in their history.
The players have only accrued 35 points after 34 games, and the team is currently in 17th place. With only eight wins, 11 draws, and 15 losses, you have no chance of staying in LigaPro.
The players need to alter their mindset as soon as possible.
On the other hand, Currently, one of the best teams in Europe is the Eagles. We can only imagine how far coach Roger Schmidt’s team will advance this season with 13 wins, one draw, and only one loss in 15 games.
So Varzim must overcome an impassable obstacle!
Varzim’s chances of beating Benfica are slim to none as coach Tiago Margarido’s team appears to be in terminal decline.
We’re not alone; Benfica is expected to win, according to the bookmakers as well. When you look at the Liga Portugal rankings, it’s difficult to not choose the players of coach Roger Schmidt as favourites.
Benfica is in contention to win the championship with a comfortable six-point advantage over ferocious rival Porto. Varzim are undoubtedly not Sporting Lisbon or Porto, either.
Benfica also has the advantage in head-to-head matches because four of the eight meetings between the two teams have resulted in wins for the Eagles, two have ended in a draw, and Varzim has won just twice.
The best Portuguese team right now is none other than Benfica. No matter how hard the home team tries, Benfica will press forward and score a tonne of goals in this Taca de Portugal game. The attacking statistics of Benfica are unmatched by any other team in the top division of Portuguese football.
On Tuesday, Varzim will probably lose to Benfica, who have 38 goals in just 15 games.
1×2 Betting Odds
On January 10, we not only predict that Benfica will win, but we also have our doubts about Varzim’s ability to get even close to Odysseas Vlachodimos’ goal.
At the start of this millennium, the two teams faced off frequently, and Varzim was fortunate enough to score against Benfica. But those times are long gone, and since then, the home team hasn’t had the best of luck!
With all that said, the odds that the home side will win are reflected of that @ 12.00!
Probably the best team in Portugal, Benfica, are the hot favourites to win here with market odds @ 1.29.
The possibility of a stalemate after 90 mins are played, stands @ 6.00.
Total goals over/under
The odds that the total number of goals scored will be over 2.5, stands @ 1.58.
While the odds that the total number of goals will be under 2.5, stands @ 2.54.
Benfica are expected to win here, and they are expected to win big!
These are two teams who are on the opposite spectrum when it comes to form, quality and momentum, so do expect a plenty of Benfica goals in this one!
