Eagles keep chances for the playoffs
Benfica are in third place in their Champions League quartet, two points behind Barça. The odds are that the Eagles need to win and also hope that the Catalans do not win away to an unmotivated Bayern. If they are tied on points with Barcelona, Benfica will be higher on account of their head-to-head encounters. The team is a little sluggish in the domestic arena, where in the last round they lost in a crucial derby to Sporting 1-3. Now the club is third in the league, 4 points behind the two leaders. The Lisbon side will be without four players because of injuries.
The Kyiv team will try to slam the door
This season, Dynamo failed to fight for the group exit, the Kyivians will take the last place in the quartet, regardless of the result of the last meeting. Mircea Lucescu set up his men for a serious fight even in such circumstances, because they must finish the European Cup season with dignity. In the last match against an unmotivated Bayern at home there were chances to score points, but they were a bit unlucky – 1:2. In the championship the club shares the lead with Shakhtar Donetsk. In the last matchday they managed to beat Veres – 3:0. Five players will miss this meeting for various reasons.
The meeting in Kyiv proved to be tense, the denouement came in the end, when Dynamo first created a dangerous moment, and then scored, the celebration for Kyiv spoilt by a video referee, which fixed a minimum offside.
A lot of signs point to the fact that the hosts should win, Benfica has tournament motivation, plays on home field, and is also better than their rivals in the European Cup season. We think that everything is not so simple here, as the Lisbon players were not impressive in the last games, and Dynamo will not give up 3 points for nothing. We consider a +1.5 goal handicap win to be an interesting betting option.
