Anderlecht vs Benfica by 20legend

Anderlecht
VS
Benfica
Anderlecht is rock botton in the group with only one point, as they got surprisingly against the group leader PSG two weeks ago. They have only won one of their last ten fixtures in CL and they have only theoretical chances in order to get proceeded from this group. They will have to aim for the third spot, which currently belongs to Benfica who has four points, but with the form that Anderlecht is showing it should be impossible. They are just in 5th place in the league back in Belgium, where they also lost their match this weekend against Charlerloi, and gives them a total of 10-1-5 this season. Their striker Matias Suarez is still out with a injury, while another regular starter and midfielder Sacha Kljestan is serving a ban tonight.

 

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.pin
