Jorge Jesus’ Benfica take on Dariusz Zuraw’s Lech Poznan at the Estadio da Luz on Thursday night in UEFA Europa League action. Steven Gerrard’s in-form Rangers lead the way in Group D, with the Portuguese side level with the Scots on eight points. Poznan and Standard Liege have both picked up three points from a possible 12. Benfica are the clear favourites here, but can the Polish side cause an upset in Lisbon? Keep reading for the latest odds and predictions.

Benfica Preview – Easy home win for the Lisbon giants?

Benfica kicked off their 2020-21 Europa League campaign with an impressive victory in Poznan back in October. 21-year-old Darwin Nunez was the hero, bagging a hat-trick at the Stadion Miejski. Benfica followed that up with a comfortable 3-0 home victory over Standard Liege.

The Eagles from Lisbon were then involved in two thrillers with Gerrard’s Rangers. Firstly, Benfica came from two goals down at home to draw 3-3. They were 2-0 down in Glasgow last week, but an own goal and a late Pizzi strike earned them another comeback draw against the Scottish side.

Our betting prediction:
Benfica to win to nil
13/10

(odds taken 1702 GMT, Wednesday 2 December)

 
A point will be enough for Jorge Jesus’ men, but Benfica will be gunning for a win on home turf this Thursday. The Portuguese outfit are the big favourites, as the bookies have the home victory available at just 1/4.

Lech Poznan Preview – Polish team to leave Portugal with zero points

Lech Poznan still have a glimmer of hope of making it to the Round of 32, but Dariusz Zuraw’s boys must win their last two fixtures and hope for favours from Standard Liege.

The Polish side began their Europa League group campaign with a 4-2 loss to Benfica, which was followed up with a 1-0 defeat to Rangers in Glasgow. However, they restored some pride in match three, with goals from Mikael Ishak (2) and Michal Skoras giving them a 3-1 home victory over Liege. Unfortunately, they went on to lose 2-1 to the Belgian side last Thursday.

Benfica vs Lech Poznan Betting Advice

The matchup at the Stadion Miejski in Poznan in October was the first ever meeting between the two clubs. The game was tied at 2-2 until the hour mark, with Nunez putting the Portuguese side back in front with 30 minutes to go. Benfica made sure of the points thanks to Nunez’s hat-trick goal in injury time.

 

Key Facts – Benfica vs Lech Poznan Betting Tip

  • This will be just the second ever meeting between the two sides
  • Benfica went four league and cup games without a win before Monday’s away victory at Maritimo
  • Lech Poznan have lost five of their last nine in all competitions

 

Benfica will back themselves to go far in this season’s Europa League, and Jesus will want to see his side through to the last 32 with one group game to spare. The Lisbon club and Rangers have been the best two teams in Group D by far, and Benfica should have no problems in this one.

We like the look of the home side to be winning at half time and full time at 8/11. There is also good value in Benfica to win to nil at 13/10.
