Benfica -1

Reason for tip

Benfica have won three of their four games this season by at least a two goal cushion, and three of their last five matches against Dynamo Kiev, who are struggling with rustiness on their return to action after a near nine month lay-off

Benfica 3-1

Reason for tip

Dynamo Kiev generally seem good for a goal this season, netting in three of their four games, but they are struggling for clean sheets, whereas Benfica are putting teams to bed, winning 4-1, 4-0, 3-1 and 1-0 so far

Dynamo Kiev vs Benfica Predictions

  • Both teams have netted in two of Dynamo’s last three fixtures
  • Benfica have won three of their last four matches by at least two goals
  • Three of the last five meetings between these two sides have seen Benfica win by a 2+ goal margin

Can Dynamo take the advantage?

Given the war in Ukraine, this is only Dynamo Kiev’s fourth game since December, and that’s perhaps showing in their results, three draws and a defeat.

There is no home advantage as we know it in this match, which is being played in Poland, and there is a fear their defence, who have only kept two clean sheets so far, will be able to cope with Benfica.

Indeed, Mircea Lucescu’s side have a shocking head-to-head record against the Portuguese outfit, losing four of the six meetings, including a draw and defeat in the Champions League last season.

Benfica have hit the ground running

Benfica on the other hand have had a terrific start to the season, winning all four of their matches so far, three of them by at least a two goal margin.

Despite that, they have only kept two clean sheets, of which just one was away from home, in a 1-0 victory over Casa Pia in the Primeira Liga on Saturday.

Roger Schmidt’s side, who lost in the quarter-finals of this competition to Liverpool in 2021/22, are on a run of five successive matches and have lost just one of their last eleven.

I predict that Dynamo will get a goal in this game, but think Benfica will win with a -1 handicap, selecting 3-1 as a correct score prediction.
