Fenerbahce finished as the 2nd in the last season’s domestic championship and thanks to a better goal difference than Istanbul Basaksehir they got the chance to fight for the place in the Champions League group stage.

They opened new domestic campaign with a 2-1 win over Bursaspor and they are hoping of catching up their rival’s advantage from the first leg clash.

Unfortunately for Ander Ayew and the lads, they didn’t manage to find the back of the net in Lisbon, so Fenerbahce should be taking care of keeping the clean sheet in this one, otherwise they’ll need to score at least three times.

Benfica have been in a similar position as their rivals and although they controlled the top spot before the derby clash against Porto, they slipped down and finished as runners-up.

The visitors also booked a victory in the opening round of their national competition as they were better than Vitoria Guimaraes.

Rui Vitoria’s side managed to secure a narrow advantage from the first leg clash and if they find the back of the net away in Istanbul, they’ll be a step away from the group stage of the Champions League.

Fenerbahce vs Benfica: Head-to-head

These two sides faced each other three times in the European competitions and the hosting team snatch all three victories. Except their clash in Lisbon in 2013, other two were low scoring ones.

Fenerbahce vs Benfica: Prediction

Both sides will be searching for their chance to secure the place in the final qualification round and we believe the visitors should be capable of remaining undefeated in this one, although they will play in a very hot atmosphere.

Except their last week’s encounter, these two teams have been involved in efficient clashes and in this one it is expected that both of them manage to find the back of the opposition’s net..
