Benfica vs Salzburg Predictions and Top Betting Tips

Benfica vs Salzburg will be a curious game to kick off group D in the CL. Here are our predictions.

Total Goals Prediction: Over 2.5 Goals

Benfica played an exceptional campaign last season in the Champions League and reached as far as the quarter-finals. They almost took out Inter, who reached the final later. We expect Benfica to attempt to reach far again and Salzburg are the perfect team to start off. Both sides play attacking football and score a lot of goals, so we expect them to score here.

Match Result Prediction: Benfica to Win

Salzburg are a serious team that has incredible funding but they shouldn't be stronger than Benfica. The hosts seem to be in perfect shape right now in the new season and their attack looks even more dangerous than it was last season. Benfica played incredible football last year in the CL and beat teams like Juventus at home. They were scoring 3-4-5 goals every home match and we expect a strong performance here.

Correct Score Prediction: 3-1 to Salzburg

It is incredibly difficult to play at Benfica's stadium and we expect the hosts to beat Salzburg with a comfortable margin. They score 3 goals on average and the visitors will have their toughest match yet in the new season. When we compare the Benfica vs Salzburg line ups, we think that the home side definitely has a solid advantage in strength.

Benfica vs Salzburg Team Previews

Benfica Preview

Benfica won the title in Portugal last season after a tough campaign and deservedly are in the Champions League again. The team looks like it has improved in attack even more and they will be a huge problem for every single team in this group. The problem is that their defense concedes more than it did before but there is time to improve still.

Salzburg Preview

Salzburg won the title in Austria again and it was obvious that they will return to the Champions League. They have given us some incredible moments in recent years and we expect more from them this year. They are incredible in attack and like Benfica, they have some issues in the back line. They concede more goals than usual and they may suffer against fast teams like Benfica.
