PSV

PSV are trying to get back to the group stage of the Champions League where they last featured in the 2018/19 season where they finished rock-bottom in a group containing the who’s who of Europe; Barcelona, Inter Milan and Tottenham.

They did well to finish second in the Eredivisie behind champions Ajax and have been in stupendous form in the qualifying rounds dispatching Galatasaray and Midjylland without breaking a sweat. It, therefore, came as a bit of a shocker when they came a cropper against Benfica who beat them 2-1 in Lisbon in the first leg.

All is not lost, however. The tie is still in the balance and if their performance at home thus far this season is anything to go by, they stand a good chance of turning the tables here.

BENFICA

Benfica’s participation in the group stages is a bit more recent. They finished third in their group in the 2019/20 season and subsequently dropped down to the second-tier Europa League where they later lost to Shakhtar in the round of 32. They narrowly missed on automatic qualification for this season’s showpiece after finishing third in the Portuguese top flight.

The Eagles are looking like quite a formidable side this term. They have recorded three straight wins to start their domestic league campaign. The first leg win over PSV means they have a 100% start to the season, incredibly scoring exactly two goals in all four games.

If they can avoid defeat here they will be through to the group stages but that’s easier said than done.

Benfica have a 100% record to start the season and key to their success has been the fact that they have been landing the early punch. They have not trailed in any of their games these games.
