Benfica vs Inter Odds and Statistics
Benfica vs Inter Betting tips Champions League
Hailing from Group H, from which they finished top of the group, Benfica reach the quarterfinals for the second consecutive season.
Benfica is the only Portuguese club to reach this far in the Champions League. They began by sharing a group with French club PSG, Italian club Juventus and Israel’s Maccabi Haifa. This first stage they managed to go through undefeated, winning three of those matches and drawing two; they were highly offensive, scoring 16 goals and conceding only nine. In the round of sixteen the club faced Club Brugge of Belgium, which they defeated in the first leg 2 – 0, and the result of the second leg would be a 5 – 1 thrashing for an overall score of 7 – 1.
The scorers of this last phase and protagonists of the Reds were Joao Mário, David Neres, Rafa Silva and Gonçalo Ramos.
Both matches that allowed them to reach the Benfica vs Inter, this club used a 4 – 2 – 3 – 1 lineup, which paid off, evidently in the defensive, finishing one match with a clean sheet, and the other with only one goal conceded; as well as in the offensive, leaving both matches with a good goal difference. The dominance on the field was facilitated by the connection of the midfielders for a smooth transition between recovering the ball at the back and building the attack.
Inter Milan Predictions
The Black and Blues, second in Group C, reach the quarterfinals of the Champions League after twelve years of absence.
Inter return to the field after more than a decade without being able to reach this far in this competition. The teammates in the group stage were the German Bayern; the Spanish Barcelona; and the Czech Viktoria Plzeñ. They would finish second in this group, with three wins, one draw and one defeat; in this stage they would score 10 goals and concede 7. In the round of 16 they played against Porto, in the first round they would win 1 – 0, in the second round they would finish tied, without goals, for an overall score of 1 – 0. The scorer of this only goal was Romelu Lukaku, giving the pass for Black and Blues.
Like their opponents, they would repeat the lineups in both matches of the previous stage, with a 3 – 5 – 2, a very construction game, seeking to push from the attacking midfield on the sides and prevent the filters into the own field. It would work, but for the minimum, perhaps have a different bet for this Black and Blues, of which they will meet a much more offensive opponent.
