UEFA Champions League - Midtjylland vs Benfica Prediction


Midtjylland will meet Benfica in another fixture of Champions League qualifying on Tuesday at Cepheus Park Randers.


Midtjylland in their previous match against Lyngby in Superliga drew 3-3. They recently gone through some big scores in the past weeks and the 4-1 defeat from the first leg in the Champions League qualifying leaves them in a very bad shape with regards to getting qualification to the play-offs. Midtjylland are usually a tough side to defeat at home, in their previous 10 home matches they managed to secure 4 wins, 2 defeats and 4 draws while in previous 20 matches across all competitions they managed to record 11 wins, 4 defeats and 5 draws.


Benfica are looking quite stronger in this new campaign and they have registered back-to-back wins since the new season began in the Champions League including the domestic league. Even though they have not done extremely well in Champions League travel matches, with just a win in the last 6 matches. Anyway, they will be confident of securing their place in the final round of Champions League qualifying when they face Midtjylland at Cepheus Park Randers. Boasting a wide 4:1 advantage, Benfica look well placed to advance to a final play-offs.

Verdict: Benfica kickoff the season in excellent scoring form, but this travel match will be a huge evaluation of their performances. There will be a major challenges and tackles from Midtjylland, who were able to find the back of the net in the first leg. However, home advantage will further help Midtjylland to net a goal in this match. I expect another entertaining contest with goals at both ends and maybe a soft landing for Benfica

BTTS: Yes 

O/U goals : Over 2.5 goals
