The Merseysiders only need to keep a handicap
Liverpool pretty much decided everything in the first game, not even showing their maximum. “The Merseysiders have one foot in the semi-finals, where the sensational Villarreal, not Bayern, are already waiting for them, as everyone expected. Last week, the team had a crucial match in the APL against Manchester City, which ended 2-2. Klopp’s side sit second in the league table, just one point behind the Citizens. Liverpool might have a bit of a wobbly side, but at Anfield, the club always plays to win. There are no personnel losses in the team.
Benfica need a feat
Benfica’s season hasn’t gone well; the club is only third in Portugal and won’t go any higher, and the Champions League could be some kind of compensation. Reaching the quarter-finals is also a success, but against the backdrop of the club’s great history it is a minor achievement. “The Eagles are clearly inferior in class to the European giants, which is why they failed to do anything at home against Liverpool. Benfica have three personnel losses, with any squad, we do not expect a comeback or some kind of miracle.
The first game took place with Liverpool outshooting, who managed to score twice in the first half. In the second half, a Benfica goal restarted the intrigue, with Luis Diaz drawing the thick line in the 87th minute to make it 3-1 in Liverpool’s favour.
With many tough encounters ahead, Liverpool will try to play sparingly. Perhaps even Jürge Klopp will apply a small rotation, as the backlog in the score allows. Regardless of the line-up, the Merseysiders always fly forward at home, we consider a working bet on the home side’s victory with a -1.5 goal handicap.
