AEK Athens vs Benfica Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

A crushing defeat against Ajax in the first group match leaves AEK Athens with a mountain to climb already. Just like every Greek outfit, Athens will place a lot of hope on home games. Athens have lost only three out of the 15 Champions League home matches. Benfica took a major blow in their first game to suffer a home defeat against Bayern Munich. The Portuguese outfit do not travel well in Europe, but the recent away form has been decent. Both teams need a win after their defeat in the opening group matches, but they are expected to be quite content with a draw out of this match.

Benfica have been unable to keep just one clean sheet in the last 15 away games in the Champions League. This would be a statistic that provides relief for Marinos Ouzounidis’ men, who were quite disappointing in the away game against Ajax. I would opt for both teams to score in the game.

Draw – 23/10

Both teams to score – 19/20

AEK Athens saw over 1.5 goals in 7 out of their last 10 games played

Benfica saw over 1.5 goals in 7 out of their last 10 games played

Benfica have won 4 of their last 5 games played against AEK Athens
