  • Competition: Europa League
  • Date: Thursday, 22nd February 2024
  • Kickoff: 17:45 UTC / 18:45 CET
  • Venue: Stadium Municipal (Toulouse)

We have a possibly very interesting tie on Thursday night between Toulouse and Benfica. The French side had a bad season, but they lost only 2-1 in Lisbon, and they hope to overcome the deficit at Stadium Municipal. On the other hand, Benfica will try to preserve its advantage from the first leg and progress to the following phase.

Toulouse are not playing well this season. They anticipated to be a stable mid-team, but after 22 league rounds, Toulouse are only one point above the relegation playoff zone. They will certainly play to win against Benfica on Thursday, but their focus should be on Ligue 1. Last weekend, Toulouse won 2-1 on the road against Monaco. The guests were a huge underdog, but they delivered one of the best games of the season and took all three points. 

Between Benfica and Sporting, CF will decide who will lift the Liga Portugal championship title this season. Still, Benfica doesn't have big ambitions only in the national league because they are aiming for a good result in the Europa League, too. Roger Schmidt's team won five of the last six matches in all competitions. In the previous game, they won 6-1 at home against Vizela. 

Toulouse vs Benfica pick: Over 2.5 goals 

Both these teams are playing high-scoring games lately. Each of the previous four Toulouse matches went over 2.5 goals, while there were at least three goals in each of the last six Benfica games. Over 2.5 goals should be the best option for this tie.

Benfica have an even better situation with missing players as Juan Bernat is the only one who will not play. Florentino and Orkun Kokcu missed the game against Vizela, but both players were suspended and they should be available for Thursday.
