Betting prediction: Spartak Moscow 0-1 Benfica

Spartak Moscow have had a mixed start to their league campaign suffering defeat on the opening day before bouncing back to win over the weekend.

Having already been in competitive action Rui Vitoria will be hoping to make use of his side being the sharper of the two.

However, Benfica have put together a strong pre-season and head into the fixture off the back of some impressive results.

Jorge Jesus’ side managed to defeat French champions and recent French super cup winners Lille 1-0 before holding Marseille to a 1-1 draw.

A close encounter is expected, but given Benfica’s strong pre-season form, they will be hopeful of taking an advantage back to Portugal in a week’s time.

Spartak Moscow vs Benfica: Recommended bets

Under 1.5 goals. Wednesday’s match is expected to be a cagey affair with both Spartak and Benfica looking to stay in the tie.

The two sides have been involved in low scoring matches this season.

Benfica’s last three matches have seen just three goals scored, whilst Spartak have been involved in consecutive 1-0’s.
