Why Club Brugge is a good bet versus Benfica

Brugge isn’t playing great soccer. The road team in this shows a single victory in the last five. The win came against a decent squad, KAA Gent, but Club Brugge blew it in their very next, falling by 3 goals to KV Oostende.
However, although Brugge won’t do anything spectacular in this, they face a team with a huge 2-goal aggregate lead. There’s a chance Benfica plays a defensive match that ends in a Club Brugge 1-goal victory.

Why Benfica is a good bet versus Club Brugge

Benfica isn’t just beating their opponents. They’re dominating. Since a 1-1 penalty shootout loss to Braga, Benfica has rolled to 4 straight wins.

All 4 wins, including the 2-0 victory over Club Brugge, impresses. In their last 3 Portuguese Liga matches, Benfica has outscored their opponents 7 goals to 1. So although Benfica has a 2-goal lead, the chances of them pulling back in this is miniscule.

Final Betting Analysis: Club Brugge at Benfica

At first glance, it looked as if Club Brugge had a chance to take down their more high-profile opponent. For a team like Club Brugge, moving to the Round of 16, the Champions League Knockout Stage, was huge.

It was a sign Brugge could hang in group play. But the wheels have gone off Cinderella’s pumpkin. Brugge simply isn’t good enough to beat a team like Benfica.

The Portuguese Liga squad is playing lights out. Benfica is playing so well that they have an 8-point lead over fellow Champions League Round of 16 opponent FC Porto on the Portuguese Liga standings.

Benfica won’t pull back. This happens in front of their fans. The home chalk covers the handicap.

Champions League Pick  Benfica -1.5
