We offer a forecast for the match on October 29, Benfica – Standard. The Belgians lost in the first round, will they remain without points in the second?
Benfica have strengthened significantly in the Champions League this season, only retiring during the qualifying phase. Nevertheless, in the Europa League, Lisbon scored four times against Polish Lech (4: 2), although they allowed too much to be done in their own penalty area, which almost affected the result.
In the domestic championship, the club is confidently leading in the standings after the victory over Belenenses (2: 0). Grimaldo and Almeida were injured.
“Standard” did not meet formidable rivals on the way to the group stage, which affected it in the confrontation with the Scottish Rangers (0: 2). At the gate of the Scots, nothing was created in a match. In the regular season, the Belgians also finally lost – 0: 2 from Saint-Truiden.
For the sake of justice, before that the Liege team drove the daring “Bruges” across the field (1: 1). Six football players have been diagnosed with coronavirus.
Benfica have won six matches in a row.
Benfica scores for 16 games.
“Standard” lost two last matches dry.
In our opinion, it is better to bet in favor of the host side, since it is now destroying everyone in its path. Indeed, Lisbonians simply cannot be stopped, they are too good. The team has a great balance between defense and attack, so the handicap can be decent too. The Liege team could still have fought if it had played at home, or hadn’t experienced such a staff shortage in an important match.
Our forecast is an Asian handicap (-2) against Benfica for 2.05 in BC Winline.
