Manchester United vs Benfica – UEFA Champions League : In one of the matches of the 4th round of the Champions’ League group stage….
The locals of Man Utd will meet the Portuguese of Benfica in Old Trafford. This match will pit together the first and last places of this group, who are separated by 9 points going into this encounter in Manchester.
The hosts, managed by José Mourinho, won’t be able to count with Michael Carrick, Fellaini, Ibrahimovic, Paul Pogba and Marcos Rojo, while Rui Vitória might not have Jardel at his disposal, since he is still doubtful.
The Red Devils go into this match leading this group A, having 9 out of 9 possible points,
beating every opponent they faced so far on this competition and having one of the best attacks of the competition going into this 4th round,
having a goal record of 8 goals scored and only 1 goal conceded and already getting 2 comfortable wins up until this moment.
The team is having a good start to the season, despite not always pleasing their fans (in fact, they aren’t able to do it in most of their matches).
They are practically qualified if they are able to beat the Portuguese champions in this encounter.
Regarding Benfica, they are not having an easy life on the Champions League, being one of the few teams that haven’t gained a single point up until this moment,
which is a scenario that doesn’t suit the team’s quality, at all, even when compared to the other teams of this group A.
They are resenting their bad start to the season they are having in addition to some failed choices on this Summer’s transfer window.
Manchester United vs Benfica – Betting Tip and Prediction:
The difference between these two teams’ form, at the moment, is an important indicator of what might happen in this match,
where the Englishmen of Manchester Utd should be able to seal their qualification for the next stage beating the Portuguese by a considerable margin, bigger than the one that happened in Lisbon.
This way, in my opinion, Man Utd, on a good day, might even get a victory by more than 2 goals and that’s what I believe will happen in this encounter.
