Benfica Preview – Can Benfica assert authority?

Summer pre-season fixtures saw Benfica beat Reading 2-0, Nice 3-0, and Fulham 5-1, the latter being their best performance of the preseason against the newcomers in the English Premier League, so the hosts head into this 1st leg in confident mood.

In the Champions League last season, Benfica beat Spartak Moscow and PSV Eindhoven in the preliminary rounds before finishing in 2nd place in their group that included both Barcelona and Bayern Munich, so the Portuguese hosts have previous pedigree at this level.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Midtjylland Preview – Can Danes produce upset?

Midtjylland progressed through to this 3rd qualifying round at the expense of Cypriot opponents, AEK Larnaca in the previous round but it took a penalty shoot-out for the Danish visitors to make it to this stage.

This could be where Midtjylland’s ambitions of reaching the lucrative group stage end though as the visitors have claimed just one win out of their last seven away ties in the Champions League.
