Benfica vs Midtjylland Predictions

  • Seven of Benfica’s last nine home Champions League games have contained three or more goals
  • There have been in excess of two goals in two of Midtjylland’s last three outings
  • Benfica have lost just one of their 11 home qualifying matches for the UCL

Benfica should steal a march

This is a first competitive game of the season for two-time European Cup winners Benfica, but if pre-season is anything to go by, they should comfortably see off their Danish opponents.

The Portuguese club reached the quarter-finals of the Champions League in 2021/22, eventually losing 6-4 on aggregate to Liverpool, and they have lost just two of their last nine home games in the competition.

Seven of those fixtures contained three or more goals, including four victories, as have each of their last four friendly matches, such as a 5-1 win over Fulham and 3-2 defeat of Newcastle.

Midtjylland up against it

FC Midtjylland reached the third qualifying round with a penalty shoot-out victory over AEK Larnaca after both legs finished 1-1.

The Danes have now played five competitive games this season, with each fixture seeing both teams score and two of them containing three or more goals.

When it comes to the Champions League, The Wolves do not have a great record, as they are winless in seven away matches, failing to keep a clean sheet in the last six of those fixtures.

I predict that Benfica will win this clash and I think they will do so with three or more goals in the game, selecting 3-1 as a correct score prediction.
