Benfica vs Club Brugge Champions League Prediction by LeagueLane

Benfica vs Club Brugge
UEFA Champions League
Date: Tuesday, 7 March 2023
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Estadio da Luz (Lisbon).

Benfica is the most consistent team across Europe’s top divisions and they have one foot in the quarter finals after the 2-0 away win at Brugge. They are coming on the back of a 11 match unbeaten run in the Champions League since starting their European campaign in the qualifiers back in August.

Also, it will be worth noting that they held PSG to 1-1 stalemate both home and away during the group stage. Unbeaten at home across all competitions, Roger Schmidt’s men are big favorites to bag a convincing win over the ailing Belgian side.

They are also in a strong position to win the Liga Portugal this term. Benfica have an 8 points lead over arch rivals FC Porto and the the other rival Sporting CP are 15 points behind.

At the same time, everything is going in the opposite direction at Brugge. Scott Parker is on the verge of getting sacked after the 3-0 defeat to relegation bound Oostende.

Club Bruges managed just 2 wins from 11 matches across all competitions since he took over in December. And he is certainly not an upgrade to Carl Hoefkens who guided the team to Champions League knockout phase bagging 11 points from a possible 18.

Benfica vs Club Brugge Prediction

We expect no surprises from this match and therefore a solid victory for Benfica is my prediction. I will go on and back them to win here with 2 or more goal difference and yet AH-1.5 for the hosts priced at 2.30 odds is my first pick.

I will back the correct full-time score 3-0 along with this since there are hardly any other bets that offer good value in my risk to profit analysis.
