Benfica vs Club Brugge betting tips: Champions League preview, prediction and odds


Match preview

Benfica will be looking to stroll into the last eight of the Champions League when they play hosts to Club Brugge at the Estadio do Sport Lisboa with a 2-0 aggregate lead following on a comfortable victory in Belgium.

A lot of questions were hovering over the men from the Portuguese capital this season, as stars like Darwin Nunez departed. However, it has been nothing but a sensational campaign thus far.

Benfica are sitting top of the table in the Primeira Liga with just one defeat all campaign long, 58 goals scored and 13 let in – this is both the best defence and attack in Portugal. At the same time, they only narrowly lost in the Taca de Portugal quarter-finals to Braga on penalties.

Back in the first leg between these two, Joao Mario got the Portuguese outfit off and rolling with a penalty early in the second half, just as David Neres netted with a few minutes left on the clock.

Brugge have since gone on to draw 2-2 with Cercle Brugge, defeat Gent 2-0, and then lose to Oostende 3-0 just last Friday.

In fact, combine this with draws against Antwerp and Union Saint-Gilloise and it means only one win since the end of January for the Belgian giants.
