Previously, teams did not meet, as they are located in different countries. They also did not play friendly games and matches within Eurocups, so this meeting will be the first for them.Bet Now!
For Benfica within the Europa League everything is going more than successfully in the matches at the home arena. In the last 8 matches, the team did not suffer a single defeat: having 5 victories and 3 world outcomes.
Let us remind you that the Eagles played last time against the Belgians back in 2013. Then Anderlecht was the rival. At home, the opponent was beaten with a score of 2:0.
The form of the charges of Jorge Zhezos is now just excellent. In the last 4 matches of the Portuguese championship, the team won 4 victories with a total score of 13:3. They have the best attack in Primeira and also the best defensive line.
A few words about personnel. Andre Almeida will not appear on the field due to a knee injury. There is a possibility that Jean-Claire Todibo will not appear on the field due to an Achilles injury.
Away, within the LE, the results of the Standard leave much to be desired. In the last 7 games the team has drawn draws with rivals 3 times, with 4 losses. Interestingly, the extreme departure for the “red-white” ended in a draw with a score of 1:1 against another representative of Primeira - Vitoria Guimaraes.
It is unlikely that Montagnier's squad is in a good mood for the match against Benfica. The thing is that in the final round of the Belgian championship, the team was defeated by an outsider Saint-Truiden with a score of 2:0.
Several players from the first squad will not appear on the field for the team in the upcoming mid-weekend: Eden Shamir, Michel Ange Balikwisha, Nicholas Ruskin and Maxime Lestienne.
Prediction. We admit that the bet on "both will score - yes" will play here.
