PAOK vs Benfica Prediction 29 August 2018

Tournament: UEFA Champions League Qualification
Location: Stadio Toumbas
Match date: 29.08.2018 at 20:00

On August 29 2018 at 20:00 at the Stadio Toumbas in the forthcoming second leg game of the UEFA Champions League qualification play-offs the local PAOK are going to play against their guests Benfica. The teams drew with 1:1 score in the first leg game and now Benfica only need to score to make it further or else they will be left without the Champions League group stage for the first time in many years.

The starting game of the Greece national championship was rather successful for PAOK as they outplayed Asteras 1:0 in it. Yet, they started the ongoing season rather long time ago as they have already kicked-off Swiss Basel and Russian Saprtak. They mostly managed to do it due to the strong performance at the domestic stadium.

After two victories in a row in the national championship Benfica drew Sporting from Lisboa with 1:1 score. That’s not a big problem on the long distance while in the Champions League qualification the result like this makes Rui Vitoria’s side think of attack a lot. They have the potential to score this time and yet their defense is by far not as strong at it’s supposed to be. Benfica missed at least one goal in four of the latest five matches played.

PAOK will be trying their best to make it to the group stage of the Champions League for the first time in many years with their domestic fans watching. Considering all of the weak links Benfica have now, we think that PAOK will have their chances to make it to the next stage of the competition.
