FC Astana – Benfica. Konstantin Genich’s prediction
The Bookmaker Ratings expert and football commentator at Russian state sports channel Match TV Konstantin Genich is trying to predict the outcome of a Champions League match between Kazakhstan’s Astana and Benfica on Wednesday.
Astana are opening the match day with a home match against Benfica at 3pm GMT. It’s an important match for the Portuguese that could secure their progress from the group. They need to win in Kazakhstan or wait for Atletico Madrid’s win or draw against Galatasaray. Benfica managed to get two shutout wins out of the last two league matches. But this weekend they lost in a cup match against Sporting Lisbon in extra time. I think this loss will motivate Benfica.
I can’t believe Astana won’t lose a single home game in the Champions League. Yes, they are playing on an artificial turf. Yes, the flight was long for the Portuguese. But Benfica players’ class will allow them to win. I suggest betting on the away team. The odds are quite good. Moreover, I think to go with the unders here. Benfica to win with total goals under 3.5. There’s a more risky choice – Benfica to win and total under 2.5 goals – but it’s up to you to decide.
