Benfica vs Manchester United Prediction 18 October 2017

Tournament: Champions League
Location: Estadio da Luz
Match date: 18.10.2017 at 19:45

On October 18 2017 at 19:45 in Lisbon at the Estadio da Luz in the upcoming regular game of the third round of the Champions League group stage the local Benfica will play against their guests from England Manchester United.

In the latest match Benfica met Olhanense and they won 0:1. Even though that victory wasn’t a convincing one, it still was important for the team. That’s because of the results of their previous matches where Benfica drew Maritimo 1:1 and lost to Basel 5:0 in the Champions League. According to the information we already have, there are no players injured in the squad of the team. Lopez may be absent in that forthcoming match because of an illness.

As for Manchester United, they met their rivals Manchester United in the previous game and they drew 0:0 in the end. We must say that the game was not the first one for Manchester United without conceding a single goal and that’s why we should admit that Mourinho’s tactics actually work. In the Euro cups MU have already outplayed Basel 3:0 and CSKA 1:4,

The upcoming game will be the seventh one played between Benfica and Manchester United. Before that MU won three times while the teams drew twice and Benfica won once in 2005. The squad of Benfica got much worse in the current season compared to the previous season and that’s why we don’t think that the hosts will manage to win in the upcoming match.
