League: Portugal Segunda Liga
Vizela – Benfica B
Pick: Vizela to Win
REASON FOR THIS FREE TIP:
Hosts 20 unbeaten and impossible to oppose
Second placed Vizela are now unbeaten in 20 league games following their 1-3 victory over Academico Viseu last time out and Carlos Cunha’s men can take another step towards promotion when they entertain Benfica B this week.
Vizela didn’t exactly shape up as potential promotion material after losing four of their first eight matches this season, but it’s now nearly six months since they last tasted defeat against Arouca on November 1.
12 wins and eight draws on and Cunha’s side are favourites to clinch second spot behind runaway leaders Estoril. This Monday’s hosts are a point clear of third placed Feirense with a game in hand and they should at least maintain that advantage here.
The hosts have won nine and drawn four of their 14 outings at Estadio do Vizela this term and look good value at a shade of odds-on to see of a Benfica B side who have won just two and lost eight of their 14 away trips.
The visitors have netted in all but four of their matches on the road though, so with Vizela keeping just four clean sheets from 14 here, we’re also tipping up a 3-1 correct score.
