Tip Benfica Lisbon - Barcelona

Prediction published on September 27, 2021 at 8:16 PM - Modified on September 28, 2021 at 3:41 PM

Benfica are enjoying a great start to the season and after their draw with Dynamo Kiev on Match Day 1 of the Champions League, they will be keen on a home win over Barcelona. They are on two straight wins going to this game and have won four of the last five. Benfica are coming from a 3-1 win over Guimaraes, their fourth game in five to produce over 2.5 goals. They have a good scoring run, with two or more goals in four of their last five matches, but have managed just two clean sheets in the last five. Playing at home, they will be charged up for this game, having won each of their last five matches there and scored two or more in each. Benfica have no clean sheet in the last three home games. They are however unbeaten in the last five Champions League matches, with four clean sheets. At home, Benfica have four straight wins in the Champions League, losing two of 10.

Barcelona on the other hand gave a great response to their recent slump with an impressive 3-0 win over Levante in their last game. That was their second straight clean sheet and they are starting to get their season in control. Ansu Fati returned from injury with a goal in the last game and Barca will be glad to have Frenkie de Jong back after missing the league game. Manager Ronald Koeman will also be allowed in the dugout after serving his domestic suspension. Both teams have scored in four of their seven games this season and their last five matches have produced over 2.5 goals in three. They have played two away games and both have ended in draws. Barcelona’s decline has been so bad that they haven’t won any of their last four Champions League matches, losing three and keeping no clean sheet. The Spaniards have conceded three or more goals in three of their last four Champions League matches. Four of their last five have matches in the competition have produced over 2.5 goals.
