      Tip Reasoning

      Benfica may have had their fair share of troubles in trying to replicate their domestic success this season. However, their Champions League form has been unquestionable. They beat Astana 2-0, which was expected, but they then travelled to finalists from two years ago, Athletico Madrid, and won that game 2-1. A win in Turkey on Wednesday night would go a long way to locking up this group and a Last 16 place.

      Galatasaray are another typically formidable home team in European football, but they’ve not made the most of their opportunities so far in this group. They started with a disappointing 2-0 home loss to Athletico, before battling for a 2-2 away draw against Romanian side Astana.

      It’s a crucial game for Galatasaray if they want to stay competitive in the race of a spot in the knockout phase of the competition. Meanwhile, Benfica should travel to Turkey full of confidence and ready to produce a methodical win.

      Three Reasons for Betting Tips

      1. Not a strong Galatasaray

      Their always a strong team in Turkish football, but we’re not convinced that this season’s Galatasaray squad is ready to do any damage in Champions League football.

      2. Expect goals

      What we do expect is that Galatasaray will score goals at home, but we think they’ll give up too many opportunities against a Benfica side that can still score goals.

      3. Benfica structure

      We’re anticipating that Benfica’s all round team organisation, structure and depth should be a factor in this match-up.
