Final Betting Analysis: Benfica at Club Brugge

Benfica is playing lights out, but Club Brugge has so far proven a difficult underdog to get past. The victories over Leverkusen, Porto, and Atletico during the group stage impress big time.

Brugge took it to Atletico early in the 2-0 match. The home team in the first leg, Brugge scored in the thirty-sixth minute. Then in the sixty-second minute, CB got another goal.

The flub versus Porto makes sense because Brugge had beaten the Portuguese Liga squad 4-0 in the first leg. What impresses is that Brugge beat Porto 4-0 on Porto’s grass.

The bottom line is that during the group stage, Club Brugge played great soccer in every match save for the 4-goal loss to Porto. CB has a big edge because they play this in front of their fans. The odds make the home team an overlay.
