Your very own Liverpool v Benfica Betting Preview
After Liverpool’s 3-1 win against Benfica in the 1st leg, the Reds became the favorites to win the UCL this season. Man City have been the frontrunners ever since the competition began but their 1-0 win over Atlético wasn’t enough to maintain the validity of their title case. Even after April 10’s 2-2 draw between the two Premier League clubs, the UCL odds remain unchanged. This Wednesday, Benfica will take on Liverpool at Anfield, and their chances of advancing are quite slim.
If the Liverpool v Benfica betting previews tell you anything is that the Reds will both win on April 13 and advance to the semis. Liverpool’s 4-3-3 attacking formation will most likely remain unchanged for the 2nd leg. The impressive feat is that the Reds have only lost one home match since August 2021. So seeing how Benfica cannot settle for anything less than a 2-0 win, they should be concerned.
The Portuguese side might go back to their 4-4-2 double 6 formations after the disappointment during the 1st leg. Both Grimaldo and Éverton are risking suspension but at least the squad hasn’t suffered from any recent injuries. Liverpool is in the safe zone with no injuries or suspensions as they continue their superb form. In this season’s UCL Benfica only outmatch Liverpool when it comes to clean sheets, saves, and tackles won.
Liverpool is dominating in goals scored, possession, passing accuracy, and win rate. If Benfica wants to advance they’d have to recreate their 2005/2006 season performance against Liverpool. Additionally, the Portuguese side hasn’t reached the semi-finals in more than 30 years, so it’s obvious who the favorites are. To sum up this Liverpool v Benfica betting preview, let’s look at some odds for their upcoming match.
