SL Benfica vs Spartak Moscow: Prediction and Betting Tips
Benfica are off to a winning start to their season
Benfica are two-time winners of the European Cup (Champions League) in 1961 and 1962. Additionally, their 40 appearances in the Champions League are only surpassed by real Madrid. Since 2010 the Eagles have appeared in the group stages of the CL nine times. Their best result was reaching the quarte-final in 2012 against Chelsea.
The Eagles had finished third last season in the Primeira Liga. Coach Jorge Jesus kicked off his season with two back-to-back victories. After beating Spartak in the CL, Benfica kicked off their season in the Primeira Liga with an away win at Moreirense. Those two wins came on the back of a great preseason in which Benfica didn’t lose in seven matches.
Benfica key points
- Benfica lost one of their last ten matches
- The Eagles scored in nine of their last ten matches
- Benfica’s average goals scored per match in the last ten matches is 2.4
Spartak Moscow in a hard second leg challenge
Having won the Russian championship for a record ten times, Spartak Moscow are Russia’s most successful club. In addition, the Red and Whites have reached the semi-finals of all three European club competitions. Spartak’s last group stage appearance in the Champions League was in the 2017-18 season.
Contrary to their opponents, Spartak are on a two-game losing streak and have lost three of their last four matches. Two of those defeats came in the Russian Premier League. The Russians will have to do better than just the four shots on target they had in the first leg. Their only win in the league this season came on the road which can be encouraging.
Spartak Moscow Key Points
- Spartak scored in six of their last ten matches
- The Red and Whites had clean sheets in two of their last ten matches
- The Russians scored on average 0.9 goals per match
SL Benfica vs Spartak Moscow Prediction
Benfica almost finished their job in the first leg of this tie. The Portuguese are very strong on home ground and it will be a very tough task for Spartak. The difference is huge between the two teams’ goals scored in their last ten matches as we can see in the stats.
Spartak have scored just two goals in their four competitive matches in the new season. Coach Vitoria of Benfica must find a way for his team to score more goals as they have to overturn a two-goal deficit.
In the combos section on Vbet, we will back the bet double chance and total goals. There are some very probable and profitable bets to take advantage of. There is an 85% chance for over 1.5 goals to be scored in this match according to the bookies. We will back that.
