Expert betting tips

The upcoming match will be interesting because there are a lot of interesting statistics. For example, in this season Benfica has not yet found itself in a catch-up role. Even in the case of missing a goal at the beginning of the match, the club has often managed to correct this situation: they have made seven comebacks in the previous 16 matches in all competitions. The representatives of the Eredivisie do not have the best record in terms of European club comebacks in the case of defeat in the first match. The team from Eindhoven managed to win at home only 12 of the last 30 matches (40%). A very tense encounter is expected in Eindhoven, both clubs, of course, wish to be in the group stage of the most prestigious club tournament. That is why we should bet on the yellow cards, a lot of cautions are expected. You can also expect a lot of goals with a TO 2.5.

Betting options:

  • Total over (4.5) yellow cards for odds of 1.70;
  • Total Over (2.5) goals for odds 1.70;
  • Both teams will score for 1.55.
