Da Luz announces a confrontation with a high level because they are facing two good teams from the first Portuguese league.
It is the second quarter of the final of the Portuguese Cup, it is played in a single match, so it is a duel on which.
▪️Even if only 16 rounds passed, he took a pretty serious option to win the title.
▪️It has an advance of 4 points against the main follower and the great rival FC Porto.
▪️In this edition of the Cup he defeated Cova Piedade, Vizela and Braga.
▪️He lost in the semifinals to the previous one, so he has a rematch.
▪️For 12 games he did not lose and only 3 teams managed to entangle him during this time, so he is really a force.
▪️It works on the treadmill, but unfortunately for her, the defensive does not work at a high level.
▪️He is fighting for a place in the Europa League and currently occupies the 7th position in the First League.
▪️It is only 2 points away from Braga, the band that is in 4th position.
▪️To reach this stage of the Cup he defeated Condeixa, Alverca and Marinhense, so modest opponents.
▪️Hard to believe that he intends to win the trophy, generally going to one of the Sporting, Benfica and FC Porto borders.
▪️He has 2 wins and 2 defeats in the last 4 clashes, so we can say that he is inconsistent.
▪️The two successes were at zero and the same denouement had the failures, so the attack is not extraordinary, but neither the defense.

Football Prediction of the Day Benfica vs Rio Ave
I bet that Benfica will register in both halves. I think it will outclass its opponent because it has a higher quality. He certainly intends to win this trophy, being one of the most galloned teams in Portugal.
The “vultures” will have fans on their side and they will push the players from behind to make a show. Seferovic and the company scored in the 2 parts of the game in 6 of the previous 8 confrontations on Da Luz.
For Rio Ave, the race in this competition is practically over. She does not have an extraordinary defense, she has scored enough goals in the matches with strong opponents.
She has been empty in both halves in 5 of the last 6 meetings with the group she will be breastfeeding now.
