Benfica vs Bayern Munchen Prediction 19 September 2018

Tournament: UEFA Champions League
Location: Estadio do Sport Lisboa e Benfica
Match date: 19.09.2018 at 20:00

On September 19 2018 at 20:00 at the Estadio do Sport Lisboa e Benfica in the forhtocimung first round game of the UEFA champions League group stage the local Benfica will play against their guests from Munich Bayern. Bayern are considered to be one of the main favorites of the competition. They are usually extremely strong at the group stage of the Champions League and they are to show it once again.

Benfica made it to the group stage of the competition through the qualification. In the last round they outplayed PAOK with 5:2 score. They obviously failed in the previous season as they took the last place in the group playing against MU, Basel and CSKA and they lost all of those matches. At the moment they are ready to rehabilitate. They were preparing for the Champions League group stage in the national championship where they gained ten points in their four starting games played.

The results of Bayern are even more impressive as they won three times in their three matches played with at least three goals scored in those games. At the start of the season Kovac’s side outplayed Eintracht 5:0 in the Super Cup and Hoffenheim 3:1, Stuttgart 3:0 and Bayer 3:1 in the Bundesliga. They didn’t have any serious competitors in the national championship and it may stop them from achieving success in the Champions League.

The teams have already met each other in the quarterfinal of the Champions League 2016/17. Bayern made it further in that competition and yet in Lisboa the teams drew 2:2. Benfica are playing at home this time and they will be supported by the domestic fans. We aren’t sure that Bayern will easily get their three points this time and yet they may be able to do it.
