Benfica vs AEK Athens Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

This game certainly fits into the category of a dead rubber with both teams stepping onto the field only for pride. Benfica have been able to seal a Europa League spot while AEK Athens are set to finish bottom of the group even with a victory in this match. However, it will be extremely difficult for the Greek team to get anything out of the visit to the Estadio do Sport Lisboa, which has been a stronghold for Benfica. Bayern Munich have been the only team to get success on this ground in 2018 European matches. AEK Athens have been very poor with a draw at half-time and loss at full-time in three out of the five group matches. I would go with more of the same.

It is a disappointment that Benfica have not kept in the clean sheet in the European group matches this season. The only blank for the Portuguese outfit in the last nine European matches was at home against Fenerbahce in the qualification rounds. AEK Athens are playing for pride and I would back both teams to score.

Draw at half-time and Benfica win at full-time – 11/4

Both teams to score – 19/20

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

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