Champions League: Atletico Madrid vs Benfica

Atletico Madrid vs Benfica Betting Tip and Predictions. In the second round in Group C of the UEFA Champions League, Atletico Madrid tke on Benfica.

Atletico Madrid started very well in this competition and took all three points in Turkey, against Galatasaray 0-2. If they manage to win the game against Benfica they will make a big step forward to qualify in the next phase. In Primera they lost against Villarreal last weekend, so they will do their best in order to secure another three points upfront their supporters. Home team are taking part in the UEFA Champions League for the third year in a row and they are the main candidate to go through in the next round.

Benfica beat FC Astana in the first round and they are looking for more points in the match against team from Madrid. They are playing very good at home, but their away performance is not at the high level. They failed to win in the last three away league matches (0-1-2), but worse thing is that they even failed to score. This will be very hard match for them. One point would be enough for Benfica, but it’s questionable are they capable to deserve it.
