Benfica v Paços de Ferreira Football Match will be played on 15.04.2013 at Estádio do Sport Lisboa e Benfica (da Luz) (Lisboa) for a Taça de Portugal Cup Match.

Benfica has been great all season in all competitions despite failing to win the Taça da Liga, however they did go through as far as the Semi-Finals. They are also in the Quarter-Finals of the Europa League. In their domestic Primeira Liga table, they are currently in first position with 67 points, they are only 4 points in front of 2nd place Porto with 5 fixtures remaining. I believe they have got a good chance to win the title. In the Taça de Portugal, Benfica managed to beat Paços de Ferreira 2-0 in the first leg playing away, so they have 2 goals in hand and will be looking to go through.



Paços de Ferreira are currently 3rd in the Primeira Liga table with 46 points, they are currently in the Champions League qualifiers position and will be hoping to get a top 3 position this season. In the Taça de Portugal, they beat Lourinhanense with a massive scoreline 0-6 playing away, then they beat Gil Vicente 2-1 at home and lost to Benfica 0-2 at home in the first leg. This match will be really tough for them, as they will need 2 or more goals to go through.

I predict Benfica will win this match, as they have been really good this season. They will be playing at home, so they will take advantage of this and win the match, with 2 goals in hand.


Match Prediction: Benfica Win.
