The last time these two clubs locked horns was for a 2012 Taca da Liga tie at the Estdio do Sport Lisboa e Benfica, which the hosts won 2-0 and Santa Clara ended the game with ten-men on the pitch. The first half ended goalless, but Nlson Oliveira put Benfica in front in the sixty-eighth minute and a second goal from substitute Witsel in the seventy-fifth minute helped wrap up the win. Santa Clara striker Hugo Moreira picked up his second yellow card of the half with three minutes left on the clock, adding insult to injury for the visitors who knew by that point that the tie was already over.

They then scored four unanswered goals to take the three points. Benfica completed a marvelous comeback in their last game, against Rio Ave, last week. The team morale will surely be sky-high after this hard-earned win. Within the first twenty minutes of the game, Rio had raced to a 0-2 lead. But the home players held on with nerves of steel.

Friday sees the mid table side play host to title challengers Benfica, who ended their two game winless run in all competitions with an emphatic 4-2 victory over Rio Ave which saw the visitors move ahead of local rivals Sporting CP. Santa Clara sit ninth in the Primeira Liga table after failing to secure a win in either of their last two matches, drawing 2-2 with relegation battlers Feirense on Sunday.

Benfica have won five of their last six matches in all competitions, while Santa Clara have only lost one of their last seven matches. Santa Clara have only conceded more than one goal in one of their last sixteen matches, but have failed to score in two of their last four matches, which includes away at Porto. Benfica have won seven of their eight matches against Santa Clara, under 2.5 goals have been scored in five of those eight encounters, and Benfica have won to nil in five of their seven victories against Santa Clara. The head to head record between these two clubs and the form of both teams heading into the last game of the season does point towards a Benfica win, but we believe the game is going to be tight and tense with under 2.5 goals being scored. With all of the above in mind were backing a 1-0 win for Benfica this weekend, which is more than enough for the Lisbon club to claim the title.
