Reason for Liverpool vs Benfica Predictions
Liverpool welcomes Benfica to Anfield for the 2nd leg tie in the Champions League quarter-final match. The hosts take a commanding 3-1 lead into this match but will be wary as they lost 1-0 in the previous round’s second leg. Their two-goal lead means that Benfica will need to win by three clear goals to knock them out. Liverpool had a tough 2-2 draw in their last match against Manchester City in the Premiership and may look to rest some of their star players as it is just a three-day turnaround between games. 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. The Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp does not have any fitness worries at all before this clash, thanks to a fully healthy group ready to go.
Benfica has a mountain to climb in this match but will take heart from the fact that Liverpool was beaten in the last round second leg tie at Anfield. They will be hoping that history can repeat itself because, in 2006, they did beat Liverpool 2-0 in the away leg of the tie. Benfica comes into this match in good form, having won 3-1 against Belenenses in their last game. Benfica has only won one of their last nine away matches in the Champions League, although that victory did come in the previous round when they beat Ajax 1-0 to win the tie. 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. Benfica boss Nélson Veríssimo has to choose a team with limited availability. Rodrigo Pinho (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) and Lucas Veríssimo (Ruptured cruciate ligament) can’t be considered.
Liverpool is a big favorite in this match, and they are expected to solve the question of the winner at halftime. We believe the Reds will meet the expectations and proceed to the semi-finals without any trouble.
Both teams have been involved in many high-scoring matches lately, and the prediction for this match is over 3.5 goals. We hope that football fans will enjoy this match.
