Benfica vs Midtjylland UEFA Champions League Qualifiers Preview

Benfica and Midtjylland meet for the first time. The interesting thing about this game is the fact that it could see either side qualify for the next round of Europe’s most prestigious competition.

Benfica joins the UCL qualifiers in 3rd round. The hosts have had a great run in pre-season. They won all their five pre-season games, all of which they scored at least two goals in every game. However, Benfica should be wary of some defensive issues having had only two clean sheets in pre-season.

On the other hand, Midtjylland comes to this game with back to back wins, which includes a 5-1 victory in the first domestic league game against Odense BK. The visitors joined the UCL Qualifiers in round two. They drew 1-1 in the first leg of Round 2 and won the second leg in penalties. Based on these stats, we don’t think the visitors have a chance of winning this game in Portugal but could find the net at least once. However, that will depend on Benfica address their defensive concerns ahead of the UCL qualifiers.
