Anderlecht vs Benfica by 20legend
Benfica’s status is a bit more pleasant with 1-1-2 and 3rd place. They have taken their points by beating Anderlecht at home, and getting a draw in against Olympiakos away from home. They did deserve a lot better against Olympiakos, but the home team’s goalkeeper Jiminez had an amazing match and saved one point for his club. Benfica has the 2nd place within range, but with an extremely difficult final game against PSG, they must grab all three points tonight. They are showing good form in the domestic league as they have won four straight matches and is currently in 3rd position with 7-2-1 in total, only one point behind league leader Porto. The bad news is that they must manage the game without their top scorer Oscar Cardozo tonight.
Anderlecht got a sursprising point against PSG, but if we look at the whole picture here, they have delivered a poor performance in this year’s CL. Benfica won the opposite meeting 2-0, and even if they will miss Oscar Cardozo, I still belive that the Portuguese team has the ability to beat the weakest team in this group. It is important to seal off the spot which gives the Europa League ticket, but it is also a must-win match if the dream of proceeding together with PSG should be an option. A pretty good odds at Benfica as well and it will be my pick.
