I'm going to justify my tip with some external factors, because the if you just look for the value of the teams it's a bit complicated to explain.
Benfica is in a complicated moment, a lot of injuries of first team players( Ederson, jardel, jonas( Best striker),Zivkovic,Andre Almeida,Eliseu(out of form).Also the team of Tondela is ultra defensive, very aggressive, an image of is coach PitBull Petit( former Benfica miedfielder).If that wasn't enough, the Tondela pitch is a complete disgrace!! Full of holes,yellow grass, mushrooms growing all around, because of that situation, Benfica stated that they won't play Saturday in those conditions but they don't have other options so they will play Saturday at 20:30 hours ,at the Stadium João Cardoso the first round of the Championship with Tondela .
So, big trouble for Benfica to beat Tondela, pitch is bad and Jonas won't play, very important player for Benfica and the best player of Portuguese league.
Jonas will miss Benfica in the next games, starting now by visiting Tondela, counting for the opening round of the League. Since coming to Portuguese football, September 12, 2014, the Brazilian striker had only seen one outside the championship game, and sitting on the bench.
Then we fall back to 14 December of the same year. Benfica visited the Dragon Stadium for the 13th round of the League and won by two to zero, with "bis" of Lima. Jonas did not leave the bench, but after that never again miss a championship game, proof that sum 61 games and 52 goals.
Apart from goal scoring, Jonas presented here also an impressive regularity, with 84 matches eagle to the chest. On balance, Jonas only missed five games since coming to Benfica.
With such a bad pitch,against an ultra defensive team,without Jonas I see a low scoring game here.Good luck
