Benfica vs Midtjylland
UEFA Champions League
Date: Tuesday, 2 August 2022
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Estádio da Luz.
Benfica have been one of the best teams in the Portuguese top flight for the past several years and it seems that they have carried over this momentum into this new season. Meanwhile Midtjylland have been struggling to show consistency for some time now and are also letting in goals in huge numbers.
They had to settle for a second-place finish the last season in the Danish top flight and all through the campaign they were able to deliver just 13 wins.
Do also note that they have been struggling to find form in road games lately and are also letting in goals in huge numbers in such fixtures for the past several match-days.
On the other hand, Benfica simply have been on fire lately. They are on a long winning streak and also scoring goals at an absolutely impressive rate.
They are also at home and they have been a force to be reckoned with at this venue almost for the entirety of this year.
Only 2 teams in the Portuguese stop flight had let in fewer goals than them the last season and only the toppers had scored more goals than this team.
By the looks of things, it is expected that Benfica will deliver a convincing win this Tuesday in front of their home crowd.
