Champions League Benfica vs PAOK Thessaloniki
On Tuesday, the UEFA Champions League gives us the final act before the start of the group, with no less than 12 teams in the direct battle, who will try to qualify in the next phase with the most powerful bands in Europe. One of the three duels to be played today is Benfica and PAOK, a match scheduled from 22:00 on Estadio da Luz. Although the Portuguese should not have emotions tonight, Lucescu Jr & Co are ready to do everything to join the UCL.
Benfica, the host of this dispute, is in the favorite position of the bookmakers because of the net value net they own and the experience that is certainly above that of the tonight combatant. The Rui Vitoria-led team made their debut in the European season this season against the Turks from Fener, who were hard at this confrontation, eventually managing to qualify for the playoffs. The Portuguese tried to take advantage of their participation in the International Champions Cup where they played some important parties that apparently helped them positively. Recently he also managed to make a championship, winning in the first round against Guimaraes, score 3-2, a game he controlled for more than 70 minutes, and then followed a total relaxation of Benfica who received inexplicably two goals in the last minutes, proof that seriousness is not really high odds. This weekend, Rui Vitoria’s players have won a game, the one against Boavista, score 0-2, and have an excellent morale before the game against the Greeks.
PAOK Thessaloniki, the guest of this tournament, starts at second-hand bookmakers. Romanian coach Răzvan Lucescu, although he was expected to have a difficult life at the UCL debut because the championship in Greece has not yet begun, the duel against the Swiss team from the previous tour showed something else about the team of the former selector. Friendly games were not so relevant to Lucescu JR but he trusted his boys to become aware of the importance of UCL parties and to act accordingly. Things were favorable for the Greeks who managed to defeat the Swiss band twice, 2-1 in Greece and 0-3 in Switzerland. These positive results helped the Greek club very mature in the game against the Muscovites, which they turned from 0-2, and thus managed to win by an incredible 3-2. The qualifying event was eventually due to the 0-0 result from Moscow, and Lucescu Jr writes history at the band in Thessaloniki. The PAOK is close to the first qualification in the UCL group, this being possible if it is mobilized two times better against the Portuguese, being really a band that deserves to be treated as carefully as it is also a chance should not be missing for the Greeks.
Football Prediction Benfica vs PAOK
Estadio da Luz will be filled in this match because the favorite team of the hosts has the chance of a new qualification in the UCL groups due to the fans after the last failure with a season when they laughed in that campaign, game. Rui Vitoria is aware of the importance of this game, as do the players, and will certainly be motivated to win tonight. Răzvan Lucescu also has confidence in his footballers that they will approach the game from the first minute in the spirit of qualification, and I think the PAOK can do this by proving it has the necessary value, thus counting on a goal scored at Lisbon and a minimum equality result.
