BENFICA

Although Liverpool have won more UCL titles, Benfica also have rich European football history. With the legendary Eusebio in their fold, Benfica were the first Portuguese side to reach the final of the European Cup, the first to win it and the only one to this day to win the trophy in consecutive years.

Their emergence at this stage of the competition came on the back of a surprising but impressive 1-0 win at Ajax following a 2-2 in the first leg.

In this tie, they face a daunting task against a well set up Liverpool side who have won six and drawn 2 of their last 8 champions league games against Portuguese sides.

LIVERPOOL

The Reds’ season has been very impressive so far. A league Cup triumph over Chelsea, an FA Cup Semifinal ticket and PL title challenge indicate that a quadruple is on the cards here.

Liverpool have in the last couple of games been able to grind out results no matter how difficult. Diogo Jota’s fine form means even when Salah isn’t at his best, they have an option to deliver for them.

The ability to make something out of nothing is the hallmark of a champion and we expect Klopp’s men to once again make the most of this area of strength in this away match.

OUR PREVIEW AND BETTING PREDICTIONS FOR BENFICA Vs LIVERPOOL

While Liverpool are the better team all round, this is in no way an easy tie. Benfica’s shock 1-0 win at Ajax in the last 16 has shown how effective they can be against an attacking side.

Also, with away goals out of the picture, we expect an intense action all round. Based on this, we are expecting that at least 2 goals will be scored in the first half. For this option, we are going with Betbonanza’s odd of 2.35.

Going by his current run of 3 goals in the last 3, Jota has been a reliable option upfront for Klopp’s team. We expect this run to continue here. Therefore we are going with Jota anytime scorer for our second betting strategy. Betway has odd of 2.03 for this prediction. That’s quite good and definitely a reason to open a new account. Another good reason is the Betway welcome bonus!
