No easy cup progress for Benfica


Today is a particularly quiet Thursday after the international break but there is some action in Portugal as giants Benfica host second tier FC Arouca in the Taca de Portugal.

Arouca – 2 @ 13/10

It is hard to see anything other than a Benfica victory in this match up but the LigaPro outfit may be able to keep the game tighter than you may expect.

Benfica have a must-win game against Bayern Munich on the horizon if they are to stand any chance of progressing in the Champions League, and with that in mind manager Rui Vitoria could decide this cup clash represents a good opportunity to rotate his squad.

The Lisbon club haven’t blown anyone away at home this season and have just five wins in 10 games, with only one of those victories coming by more than a one goal margin.

Arouca are likely to put bodies behind the ball and they may well keep the result respectable by beating a +2 handicap at the Estadio da Luz.

Boulogne to win @ 21/20

In the French third tier, Boulogne are unbeaten at home and can maintain that run with a win over Rodez this evening.

Rodez boast the best away record in the division with three wins, three draws and just one defeat but all of their victories have come against sides in the bottom six and promotion rivals Boulogne should be too strong with home advantage.
