Benfica and Barcelona are going to be looking for their first win of the UEFA Champions League 2021-22 season as they take on each other. These two teams have met four times in the past with two draws and two wins for Barcelona. however, this Barcelona is a lot different from the one that we see nowadays and so we don't think bettors should put too much importance into results that are nine years old at the earliest!
The Portuguese League is not the strongest but it still is worth noting that Benfica has score three goals in its previous two outings and also scores five goals not too far back. It is going to be confident of scoring goals although doing so against an under-performing Barcelona team is going to be quite tough. Barcelona's 3-0 win against Levante is an indication of things improving at Barcelona finally after the upheaval Messi's leaving seems to have caused.
Match prediction and football betting tips for Benfica vs Barcelona UEFA Champions League 2021-22. The match is going to be played at Estádio da Luz, Lisbon, Portugal on the 29th of September 2021.
Traveling to Lisbon to take on Benfica is a tricky game for Barcelona. It has a 3-0 win against Levante to help give it some confidence and the fact that Ansu Fati scored within 10 minutes of his return to the side is a big plus. Memphis Depay also scored in the previous match and he provides the Catalan side with attacking prowess that is simply missing from Benfica. However, Barcelona's defense has not been very good this season, and Benfica has been prolific at scoring goals in Portugal.
The odds on the draw are very attractive and worth a punt in our opinion.
Bet on the Draw in this match.
There have never been over 2.5 goals scored in any match between Benfica and Barcelona. The fact that both teams are still looking for their first win of the UEFA Champions League 2021-22 season makes us think that they are going to be a bit wary and this match may not have too many goals in it at all. We are happy to take the 2x odds on under 2,5 goals being scored in this match.
