      Astana vs Benfica Predictions

      Benfica will look to tighten their control of Champions League Group C when they face Kazakh side Astana FC on Wednesday night. Benfica won three of their first four group stage games and look well-poised to advance from a group that also includes Athletico Madrid and Galatasary. A win over Astana on Wednesday should all but guarantee a top two finish in the group.

      They’ve won three straight games in all competitions since a disappointing 3-0 home defeat to Sporting Lisbon in the Primeira Liga. There’s already a general feeling that they won’t have what it takes to retain their domestic league title.

      Astana have performed well in European competition overall and they do enter this game with home field advantage. They earned draws against both Galatasary and Athletico Madrid on home soil, but realistically they need three points from their final home game if they are likely to secure a place in the Europa League.

      Three Reasons for Betting Tips

      1. Astana home form

      The trip to Kazakhstan is a tough one. Astana have enjoyed pretty good form throughout European competition at home. We’ll take them on this double chance.

      2. Not a lot of cutting edge from Benfica

      There isn’t the same level of cutting edge from Benfica as recent editions of this squad. We just don’t see them breaking Astana down here.

      3. Near even odds on Double Chance

      We’re getting the double chance opportunity at near even odds, which is more than fairly useful.
