Stadium: Estadiu da Luz (Lisbon).
Out: Almeida (Benfica), Aguero, Alba, Balde, Vahe, Dembele, Pedri, Roberto (all Barcelona).
In “Benfica” all is well in the championship – 7 games and 7 wins – so Zhezusa team can focus completely on the Champions League. They failed to win the first match against Dynamo Kiev – but away and one point is not a bad result.
Barça finally managed to win big – 3-0 against Levante – and Ansu Fati played an important role in this, who cheered the Catalans fans. How will Koeman’s team play against the tough Benfica?
The Catalans do not have such a solid advantage in this meeting – and this should not be surprising. You can bet on Barça for 2.50, the draw goes with the odds of 3.46, the home team was rated at 2.96. Who will win? All odds for the match are on 1xbet betting.
In my opinion, this match has three outcomes – so I would not bet on who wins.
The odds for zero handicaps are very good – Barça can be played for 1.75, the home team generally go for 2.04. But for me personally, the outcome in this match is not an obvious option for a bet – therefore, I would not go for handicaps either.
In my opinion, there should be goals in this meeting – and the bookmakers think the same. The total over 2.5 goals can be put for 1.8, the “bottom” is estimated at 2.02.
Both clubs have difficulties in defense, but in attack the quality of the performers is at the level – plus Barça now have Fati, who is able to give a positive impetus to the team’s game in a short time. I take goals – TB 2.5.
Forecast and bet on the match “Benfica” – “Barcelona”
I will bet on the exchange of goals for 1.63 in this match. Benfica will play at home with such a Barcelona – and they simply have to score at least one goal. Well, Barça, I am sure, will definitely “master” one goal – therefore OBZ.
