Benfica B fans will want a repeat of their previous result, being the 2-3 LigaPro victory vs Cova da Piedade.
It’s not been often in recent times that Benfica B have kept a clean sheet. The facts show that Benfica B have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 6 of their previous 6 games, leaking 10 goals along the way.
Their past results show that Benfica B:
- haven’t lost in the league to Varzim in their last 5 matches.
- are without a home win in the past 3 matches in the league.
In the game prior to this, Varzim drew 1-1 in the LigaPro match with Académico Viseu.
The attacking players from Varzim have failed to get amongst the goals over their previous six encounters, contributing the poor return of just 4. In those fixtures, Lobos do Mar have also seen the collective goal tally against them equal 12. That sort of trend isn’t assured to follow through into this match, though.
Taking a look at their past results, Varzim:
- haven’t beaten Benfica B when they’ve played them away from home in the last 3 league games.
- are without a win away from home in their last 5 matches in the league.

Team News: Benfica B
Sandro Cruz (Unknown Injury) and Úmaro Embaló (Unknown Injury) will not be able to play for Benfica B manager Renato Paiva.
Team News: Varzim
Owing to a fully healthy squad available for selection, Varzim boss Paulo Alves doesn’t have any fitness concerns at all before this clash.
Our feeling is that Varzim could well find it tough to hit the back of the net against this Benfica B team who will likely get a goal themselves and run out victorious.
We’ve gone for a very competitive encounter with a 1-0 victory for Benfica B after 90 minutes.
Looking forward to this.
