Tip Reasoning

  • Benfica were 0-2 winners in last week’s first leg in Moscow.
  • The Portuguese have lost just one of their last 18 competitive games at Estadio da Luz, winning 14.
  • Spartak Moscow have lost three of their last four competitive games in all competitions.

Eagles to ease through at Estadio da Luz

Benfica ran out comfortable 0-2 winners in last week’s first leg in Moscow and Jorge Jesus’ side can secure their passage through to the Play-off round at Estadio da Luz this Tuesday night.

After a competitive first half, the Portuguese stamped their class during the second period at Otkrytiye Arena and they hold a commanding lead in the tie thanks to goals from Rafa Silva and Gilberto.

It’s impossible to oppose The Eagles this Tuesday evening based on that display and their recent record at Estadio da Luz, where they’ve lost just one of their last 18 competitive games in all competitions stretching back to last season, winning 14.

A likely match-up with PSV awaits in the next round to reach the UEFA Champions League proper and punters are advised to take the odds-on about a home victory this week.

After consecutive league defeats including a 1-2 home reverse against Nizhny Novgorod on Saturday, Spartak have now lost three from four in all competitions in what’s been a disastrous start to life in the Russian capital for new boss Rui Vitoria.

His side will have to push the boat out here in an attempt to get back into the tie, but that should only play into Benfica’s hands and The Eagles are fancied to triumph via a 3-1 score-line this week.
