Benfica 2-0

Reason for tip

Both teams have scored in each of Midtjylland’s seven matches this season, so you would expect them to get on the scoresheet, but that also shows they are weak at the back, and a Benfica side who have netted four times in both games they have played should put them to the sword

Midtjylland vs Benfica Predictions

  • Midtjylland have conceded at least two goals in three of their last five games
  • Benfica have netted at least twice in 16 of their last 23 European fixtures
  • Benfica have lost just one of their last 10 away matches

Midtjylland heading out?

A 4-1 defeat in the first leg of this tie means Midtjylland have a mountain to climb if they’re going to emulate the 2020/21 campaign, the only previous occasion they have reached the Champions League group stages.

The Danish side are struggling defensively of late, conceding at least twice in three of their last five games, two of which have ended in defeat, while the other was a 3-3 draw with Lyngby at the weekend.

They are without a win in three at home and have won only one of their last ten European ties at the MCH Arena, losing three of them by at least a two goal margin.

Benfica look set to sail through

Benfica reached the quarter-finals of the Champions League last year before losing over two legs to Liverpool, despite a thrilling 3-3 draw at Anfield in the second game.

Roger Schmidt’s side are on a good run away from home, losing just one of the last ten, winning four of those fixtures by a cushion of two goals or more.

They have also kept clean sheets in five of their last seven Champions League away matches, so recent history shows how strong they are defensively.

I predict that Benfica will win this game with a -1 handicap, selecting 2-0 as a correct score prediction.
