UEFA Champions League -- FC Barcelona vs Benfica Picks & Game Preview

 

FC Barcelon

After the disastrous defeat to Benfica and Bayern in the first two game of Champions League group state, Barcelon beat Dynamo Kyiv twice at home and away. At present, they rank second in Group E with 6 points. If Barcelona lose to the Portuguese giants again, they risk being usurped by Benfica. Moreover, given that they face the leader Bayern in the final group game, they'd better win this game, not even a draw. Xavi's opening game as a new manager ended perfectly with a 1-0 victory over the Espanyol on Sunday. Barcelona have been unbeaten in their last four games and have scored goals in the last seven home games.

Benfica

Although the 3-0 victory over Barcelona in the second game attracted attention, the two disastrous defeats in Bayern Munich greatly reduced Benfica's hope of winning a place in the knockout of the Champions League. If Benfica takes all three points and separates from Camp Nou, they will get the second place in the group, if fails, they will have to occupy a place in the Europa League. The visitors could afford to rest a number of their top players on Friday for their Taca de Portugal meeting with Pacos Ferreira and still got a 4-1 victory.

 

Prediction

Xavi will certainly provide a more reliable defender for the game and ensure that the team are in the top two. Benfica will not be easily defeated and have good memories of their battle with Barcelona in September, but we still expect Xavi's rule to continue here in a perfect way.

 

 

Pick: FC Barcelon

Total: Under 3.5 goals
