Santa Clara will host Benfica at the Estadio de Sao Miguel in Primeira Liga on Saturday (January 21). The hosts are struggling in the Portuguese top flight but with just 16 games played, there’s ample time to redress the situation. Santa Clara have secured 14 points from a possible 48 on offer and sit 16th in the standings, winning eight games.
Os Acoreanos face an uphill battle as they welcome the table toppers to the Sao Miguel, where Benfica have prevailed thrice. Santa Clara are winless in their last five meetings, losing their last home match to second-placed Sporting Braga 4-0.

Santa Clara Vs Benfica Prediction
Kennedy Boateng, Rildo and Matheus Babi have contributed a pair of goals apiece to the hosts’ total of 11 goals this season. Coach Jorge Simao will expect to add to that against the league leaders.
Goncalo Ramos is the league’s current top scorer. The Benfica man has netted 11 goals and delivered four assists already but is hungry for more. Benfica are expected to come out on top, given their superb form.
Prediction: Santa Clara 1-3 Benfica
