PSV

PSV started the season very powerfully. Roger Schmidt's team easily dealt with Galatasaray (7:2) and Midtjylland (4:0) in the previous two qualifying rounds. In the championship the "red-whites" are also going without losses so far, having two wins in two matches. Moreover, the trophy has already been won in the form of the country's Super Cup.

However, in Lisbon PSV lost 1:2 to Benfica, but at the same time had a playing advantage and the Dutch definitely had a chance of success in the return leg.

Benfica

Benfica also managed to leave one opponent out of the tournament. Jorge Jesus' team confidently dealt with Spartak, beating it with a score 4:0 on aggregate. In the Portuguese championship, the Eagles have three wins in three matches and the second place in the table. In the first leg against PSV, Benfica won a 2:1 victory, but this result has yet to be defended in Eindhoven.

Prediction

PSV failed in the first half in Lisbon and got two goals into their own net, but in the second half of the meeting the “red-whites” dominated and could easily have obtained at least a draw. At home, the Dutch vice-champion will probably be even more aggressive. Benfica could not cope with the opponent's pace even in the first match, so today it will be even more difficult for the Eagles.

PSV is in perfect shape, plays very powerfully at home. It should not be difficult for the owners to win.

We believe that guests have no chance. Prediction is for a victory for PSV. In BC 1xBet such an outcome is offered with odds of 1.94.

PSV plays attacking football and scores a lot. The score of the first match obliges the “red-whites” to go ahead from the first minutes, so it will be unrealistic for Benfica to stay dry. At the same time, the “eagles” also have a very powerful attacking line. It makes sense to wait for a scoring extravaganza when such teams meet.

Our second bet will be over 2.5 goals total. This bet can be placed for 1.87.
