Benfica Preview – Can Benfica hold up visitors?

Benfica finished runners-up behind Bayern Munich in Group E but in truth the Portuguese outfit were very much second best as they ended up 10 points behind the German champions but nevertheless, they progressed through to the knockout stage of the competition.

Results at this level have produced a mixed bag of returns for Benfica who have won just two of their last seven ties which were both at home with victories over Barcelona and Dynamo Kiev but they suffered heavy defeats to Bayer Munich, losing 4-0 and 5-2.

Benfica have won six of their last seven ties at home but they’ve failed to beat Ajax in their last three meetings.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Ajax Preview – Can Ajax continue winning streak?

By contrast, Ajax topped their Group C by a nine-point margin over runners-up, Sporting Lisbon, as the Dutch side collected a 100% winning streak in the group stage while results overall have been impressive; Ajax have won their last 10 games on the trot in all competitions.

Whilst racking up six wins on the trot during the group stage, Ajax also plundered a total of 20 goals in the process and conceded just 5 in reply so the visitors look a force to be reckoned with here without doubt.

Ajax have lost just 1 of their last 21 away ties in the Champions League.
