Lyon Women vs Benfica Women Betting Tips: AH1 (-1.5)

While many predicting a leisurely stroll through Lisbon, especially after claiming a double five-star thrashings during the UCL's 2021 campaign, the Lionesses encountered a much sharper Portuguese women's powerhouse this time around, as they had to come from a first-half goal deficit to ultimately grind out a hard-fought 2-1 lead from the first leg.

On the brink of reaching the semifinals of Europe's most prestigious club competition with one foot already in, though a one-goal lead isn't enough for complacency, Les Fenottes will leave no stone unturned to seal the deal in the second leg on their home turf, with their confidence further bolstered by the weekend's demolition of Lille W in a seven-goal massacre on the road.

Saturday's dazzling performance saw Sonia Bompastor's girls cross off another stop on their way to the French women's top-flight title, adding a perfect 17th triumph to their tally from 18 league contests, dropping points only once this term, while maintaining a proper sedam-point lead over closest pursuers Paris Saint-Germain Ladies.

Meanwhile, Benfica Women have etched their name in the history of this competition by becoming the first Portuguese women's club to reach this stage, and in their inaugural knockout appearance, despite coming away empty-handed in a narrow 1-2 loss, they can take pride in their brave and dignified display against the most decorated side in the Women's Champions League.

On a brighter note, the girls under the guidance of Filipa Patao have finely turned their sights ahead of a pivotal trip to France, as they overcame a weekend deficit to fire three late goals and seal an impressive 4-1 triumph against Braga Women, holding on to their decent five-point margin at the summit against the title-chasing Sporting Women.

Fully aware that they have nothing to lose in the rematch, Benfica Women will not allow themselves to bid farewell to the knockout stage easily, but will instead push forward more aggressively than they did in Lisbon. Nevertheless, adopting such a style of play could pose a risk for the defense of As Aguias as they face the offensively ruthless Lionesses who are expected to march to a dominant victory en route to the Women's Champions League semifinals.

The Portuguese women's side could face a setback with the possible absence of Brazilian attacker Nycole Raysla Silva Sobrinho, who had to make an early exit in the 16th minute due to an evident injury during their 1-2 loss to Lyon.

Alongside her, 19-year-old midfielder Leticia Almeida is already in the treatment room, undergoing recovery from a knee surgery that is likely to keep her sidelined until the end of the current season.
