Benfica vs Club Brugge Prediction : Top Free Betting Tips

Following a winning streak in Liga Portugal, Benfica host Club Brugge in the second leg of the Round of 16 in the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday, 7 March. Blue-Black makes an appearance in this game after dropping three points in Belgian Pro League against Oostende.

Match Result Prediction: Benfica to Win

Benfica takes advantage of a 0-2 away leg victory against Club Brugge in this game. The Eagles have also got the back of consecutive four victories in two Liga Portugal and Champions League. On the other hand, Club Brugge has registered only one victory in the previous seven away outings while losing three of them. Benfica are also without a defeat in the last five home attempts, winning four of them. So Benfica will be our favourites to take the lead in this game.

Total Goals Prediction: Under 2.5 Goals

Benfica has secured a decent flow of goals recently and earned a total of nine goals in the last four outings. However, Club Brugge has failed to feature a favourable scoring pattern, scoring only five goals in the last five away games. The Eagles have also held a strong defence at home that claimed three clean sheets in the previous five home duels. So we can expect the Portuguese side to clip the rivals once again and conclude with a low-scoring total in this game.

Correct Score Prediction: 2-0 to Benfica

Club Brugge has failed to find the target in two of the last three away outings and were goalless in the home leg against the Eagles as well. On the contrary, Benfica has hit the target twice or more in each of the previous four attempts. The hosts have also kept three clean sheets in that course, allowing only one goal against Baovista. Blue-Black has conceded five goals in the previous two games away from home. So we are in the position to predict a 2-0 victory for Benfica in this game.

Benfica vs Club Brugge: Form, Recent Games, and News

Benfica Preview

The Eagles hosted Famalicao in the previous attempt and registered a  2-0 victory. Benfica are eight points clear at the top of the table of Liga Portugal, winning 20 of the 23 attempts and ending two in draws. The manager Roger Schmidt will have four players on the injury list ahead of this game.

As it stands, they are four matches removed from their 2-1 defeat to Braga in the Taca de Portugal. Schmidt's men have avenged that result with four successive victories, conceding just one goal in the process. They have impressed with 9 goals scored on their route to these victories but the inkling for more goals from Goncalvo Ramos and co. remains.

Club Brugge Preview

After playing consecutive draws in away outings, Club Brugge got hammered in the last game with a 3-0 defeat against Oostende. But a total of 12 wins and ten draws in 28 Belgian Pro League duels has made the team stand in the fourth position on the table. Jack Hendry and Andreas Skov Olsen will miss out on this game due to fitness concerns.

The Belgian giants have a tough task on their hands at Estádio da Luz. They have to betray their indifferent form and get over the line against the in-form Portuguese behemoths. The away trip will not be kind for Club Brugge but they will back themselves on the road as compared to the home leg. They have their backs against the wall and will take confidence from the fact that they have only lost once in five away fixtures.
