Basel vs Benfica prediction: In order to recover and returning to be that Benfica who fights for the title and to advance to the next round on the Champions League.
Having lost to CSKA Moscow on the opening match has made everything harder for them in this competition.
But they shouldn’t give up just yet from the objective they were expected to reach.
The tides, meanwhile, have started to change. Simple things, that helped shape their way to approach the problems.
Fejsa allows everything around him to change globally. Benfica’s model is designed for a player with his traits, and whenever the Serbian doesn’t play, the team lacks solutions.
Their win over Paços de Ferreira ensured exactly that.
With Júlio César on goal, despite the goalkeeper being, nowadays, far from his peak, he gives more insurances of stability to a defensive line who is still walking over fire, thanks to his experience.
Their opponents are also far from their best.
Without being able to keep their consistency on the Swiss league, Basel have lost on the 1st round of this group stage against Manchester United, leaving the impression that they are far, in competitive ability, from the rest of the teams in this group.
Basel vs Benfica – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Benfica’s chance to get, in Switzerland, their first win in this group is notorious, but also essential for them to get back into the fight for the qualifying spots.
Therefore, we can conclude that Benfica will have to retain possession, showing their more dominant personality and find a way to get the goal and then hold on to that advantage.
Basel will fight for survival. But they will only be able to get points here if Benfica disappoints again and underperforms.
