  • Competition: Champions League
  • Date: 20.09.2023
  • Kickoff: 20:00 UK/21:00 CEST
  • Venue: Estádio da Luz (Lisbon)

The Portuguese champion qualified for the group stage of the Champions League for the third time in a row, and not only that, the last two times they managed to reach the fourth final, which is a significant success in such a strong competition.

After the defeat at the premiere of the Portuguese League against Boavista, the club from Lisbon fully recovered and won the last 4 matches. Last weekend they beat Visela away 2-1. Sporting and Porto are currently ahead of them with one more point, but the season is long and Benfica will surely be a candidate for the title.

This is a fairly balanced group and Salzburg may see a chance here, if not for the knockout phase of the Champions League, then at least for 3rd place and the knockout phase of the Europa League.

As far as the Austrian League is concerned, there are mostly no problems, except for maybe the previous round in which they played 2-2 against the second-placed team in the competition, Sturm Graz. Salzburg is certainly the first favorite to take the title in the national league

Benfica vs Salzburg pick: BENFICA TO WIN AND COVER AH -1

It is the beginning of an elite competition and things cannot be immediately set as obvious. The fact is that Benfica did not lose last season at home in the Champions League. They even finished ahead of PSG. Angel Di Maria is in great shape. So far in the Portuguese league, he has scored 4 goals and 1 assist. This is a player who has the experience of big matches in the Champions League, but also of winning trophies, and he will surely mean a lot to the Portuguese.

Salzburg has 5 participations in the Champions League so far and some surprising positive results, but this is a team that doesn't play as well on the road as it does at home. Benfica needs a win in this match for a safe start because Sociedad and Inter are slightly stronger teams, especially the Italian club. We expect Benfica to win without conceding a goal and AH -1 seems like a good market. A victory with a difference of one goal returns the invested money to the pocket

The situation surrounding the absent players at Salzburg is extremely complicated. A few players could be out for an indefinite period of time like Omoregie, Guindo and Diambou who have some serious injuries. Okoh and Ratkov will return to the field in a few weeks, while Pavlovic should be ready for this match.
