Dinamo Kiev vs Benfica – Free Betting Tips & Predictions

Benfica have won four fixtures on the bounce ahead of their meeting with Dinamo Kiev in Lodz on Wednesday evening. Read our top predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.

Benfica to Win

If you take their stunning pre-season form into account, Benfica have won nine games on the bounce since early July and they looked just as formidable in their four competitive fixtures as they did in their five friendly bouts. Competing in Lodz, Poland on Wednesday, Benfica don’t have any tricky home advantage to overcome against Dinamo Kiev and the Portuguese giants should be able to turn their slick football into yet another positive result in this week’s first leg.

Goncalo Ramos to Score Anytime

21-year-old hotshot Goncalo Ramos is gearing up for a real breakout season for Benfica and the young striker has already netted four goals in as many games this term. Ramos notched a superb hattrick for Benfica when they ousted Danish club Midtjylland in the previous round of the Champions League qualifiers and the in-demand forward has the ability to get his name in lights again when he leads the line in Lodz on Wednesday.
