Match Preview

Benfica

Benfica did not manage to avoid defeat in Turkey and as their record stated, W0-D2-L1, they record another loss to make it L2. The team’s record against Turkish teams at home is W3-D0 -L1. The loss with 0-1, is nothing that cannot be overcome, as the team needs to score a goal for a victory anyways. A 1-0 would lead things to extra time, while 2-0 or a victory with 2 goal difference, direct advancement to the final. Benfica is one of the two teams, transferred to this tournament from Champions League (the other one is Chelsea). Benfica is a strong European host, with record W17-D2-L0 in the last 19 games, and is hoping for another victory tonight. The betting odds for the Portuguese team to win this match are @ 1.44 which are perfect for a banker. We believe Benfica will manage to win this game without any problems. Considering that the team needs to score at least 2 goals in order to advance, the Over 2.5 goals @ 1.80 is another good betting market for tonight.

Fenerbahce

Fenerbahce managed to do their job in the first leg winning the game, though with the minimal 1-0. Now away from home in Portugal, the team has to avoid defeat and they will qualify for the final. Fenerbahce’s record on Portuguese soil reads W1-D0-L2. However the team has been unbeaten in all 6 away matches this season. If Fenerbahce manages to avoid another defeat here, they will become the first finalist to reach the end stage with 7 consecutive away matches without defeat. Though the team only scores on the average 1 goals per away match, it gets the job done. The betting odds for Fenerbahce to win this match are @ 7.50. The draw is priced @ 4.50. Both outcomes are favorable for Fenerbahce, but we believe Benfica are too experienced to let them get away with anything on their home field.

Verdict

Betting tip #1: Benfica to win @ 1.44 with bet365. The team is unbeaten in 19 home games and really need a victory with 2 clean goals or 2 goal difference if Fenerbahce manages to score.

Betting tip #2: Over 2.5 Goals @ 1.80 with bet365. As Benfica will be looking for at least 2 goals, and Fenerbahce for at least 1, we expect to see at least 3 goals in this match.
