Reason for Benfica vs Liverpool Predictions
Benfica are third in the Portuguese Primeira League but 12 points behind leader Porto. They lost their most recent game, losing 3-2 at Braga on Friday, ending a run of nine league and cup games without defeat. The group stages of this season’s Champions League saw them finish behind Bayern Munich but ahead of Barcelona. They then beat Ajax 3-2 on aggregate in the last 16. The home first leg saw them come fro behind twice to draw 2-2 and then scored a late goal in the Netherlands to progress. Six of their last eight home Champions League games have been won but they did lose 4–0 to Bayern (who are the likely opponents in the semi-finals) earlier in the season. Roman Yaremchuk finally shows his proper form and scores important goals. He creates a lot of problems for the opposing defenders. Julian Weigl found the right role in the team, he moves great in the middle of the field, and it isn’t easy to take the ball away from this guy. Haris Seferovic (Leg Injury), Lucas Veríssimo (Ruptured cruciate ligament) and Rodrigo Pinho (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) will not be taking part for Benfica boss Nélson Veríssimo.
Liverpool beat Watford 2-0 at home on Saturday and if including penalty shoot-outs have now won 16 of their last 17 games. They are renowned for their attack but the fact is that in their last eight away games, the Reds have only conceded one goal and none in the last six, including a 2-0 win at Inter in the Champions League last 16. Liverpool have won seven of their eight games in the 2021/22 Champions League. All four away games have ended in victory with 12 goals scored. That includes going to Porto and winning 5-1. Naby Keita has excellent ball control, he can play in several positions, and every team needs such a player. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain plays excellently, he is fast in the one-on-one game, and he is unstoppable. In an otherwise healthy squad, there’s just a single fitness worry for the Liverpool boss Jürgen Klopp to be concerned about. Trent Alexander-Arnold (Hamstring Injury) misses out for this game.
Liverpool are a big favorite in this match, and they are expected to solve the question of the winner at halftime.
The prediction for this match is over 2.5 goals. We hope that football fans will enjoy this match.
