Benfica has started the current season in a quite impressive way. The Portuguese Giant eliminated Spartak Moscow with two 2-0 wins. The start of the Primeira Liga is promising as well – a win against Moreirense (1-2) and Arouca (2-0). Tonight the challenge will be tougher, so it is crucial for Benfica to play the game in a cautious way and try to win it.
PSV is unstoppable
The Dutch team smashed Galatasaray and Midtjylland in the previous rounds of the tournament. PSV recorded a shocking victory over the champions of Ajax (4-0) in the Super Cup Final. PSV sold the stars of the team – Donyell Malen and Denzel Dumfries but the squad still remains solid and well-balanced in all positions.
Both teams are on the verge of breaking into the Group Stage of the Champions League. It is likely not to see many goals in this game. We will consider also the home advantage of Benfica.
