It had been their first win following a series of four winless fixtures. But their desire to keep the momentum going might have to get placed on halt, as they are next taking to the defending champions of the contest.
Meanwhile, Benfica faced another shock loss at home the last game week, even against the third-placed Braga. The defeat has placed them just 1 point on the in-form Porto. Think about the simple fact that Porto are shooting on Portimonense (a relegation-battler) next -- suffice it to say, the title-holders have no option but to deliver a win this Monday.
Not only has this to be a win, but they have to do it in style too -- to find confidence back. It definitely helps that Benfica will be the reigning champions, although Gil Vicente really are a newly-promoted team to the league.
Morerover, before their loss from Porto, Benfica were about a run of 40 unbeaten games out of their previous 46 fittings, and 11 wins out of their prior 12 match-ups. On the street, since April of this past year, the team has lost in the league only against Porto.
On the other hand, Gil Vicente were winless in eight of the last eleven total fittings, and were so in nine of the former twelve matches. Most of all, Benfica had recorded 19 of the past 20 h2h wins, and the final they dropped against this opponent was again back in 2005. Furthermore, the latest h2h experience at this place had ended in a 0-5 win for its guests too.
Taking these observations into consideration, it is evident that Benfica are overwhelming favorites that this Monday to post the victory.
