Under 2.5 Total Goals

These two teams will meet for the firs time in recent years, so we don't really have any h2h stats to help us make our predictions. Still, we don't see the first leg of this matchup ending with many goals.

After all, Club Brugge only averaged 1.83 goals per game in group stages of Champions League, which was the lowest average of all teams. So, even though Benfica averaged 3.83 goals per game so far, with Brugge hosting the game, we can see it going under 2.5 total goals.

Benfica to Win

Club Brugge is without any doubt the biggest surprise this season in Champions League. After all, this is a team that finished ahead of Atletico Madrid and Leverkusen in group stages to reach the Round of 16.

However, Benfica finished first in their group ahead of giants like PSG and Juventus. They are also a much better team on paper, so we can see them winning this game to get the advantage ahead of the second leg in Lisbon.

Club Brugge vs Benfica Preview – Recent Form, Team News, Probable Lineups

This is an interesting Champions League matchup and we expect to see an exciting duel. So, let's take a closer look at both teams ahead of it:

Club Brugge

Although they were complete outsiders in Group B of the Champions League, Club Brugge is certainly the biggest surprise of the season as they managed to finish second in the group behind Porto to secure a spot in the knockout stages. So, whatever happens next, the Belgian team can already consider their season in Europe as successful.

Club Brugge Predicted Lineup:

Mignolet – Nusa, Mechele, Boyata, Meijer – Nielsen, Odoi, Vanaken – Lang, Sowah, Jutgla

Benfica

The team from Lisbon has been in great form in the first half of the season, including both Champions League and the Portuguese league where they were in first place. Benfica ended the group stages in Champions League in the first place, ahead of PSG and Juventus and without a loss, so they could be a dark horse in this edition of the European's elite competition.

Benfica Predicted Lineup:

Vlachodimos – Gilberto, Silva, Otamendi, Grimaldo – Fernandez, Luis – Mario, Rafa, Neres – Ramos

Starting Lineups

Check the starting lineups around one hour prior to the kickoff.

Player to Watch: Joao Mario

With four goals in group stages of Champions League, Joao Mario is tied with Rafa Silva as the team's top goalscorer in Europe. The expereinced winger has been in great form this season and we feel that he's the player to watch in the upcoming duel against Brugge.

After all, Joao Mario has also done well in Portuguese Primeira Liga where he scored six goals and added a couple assists to help his team in the race to win the title. If he can keep his form going forward, he might just be the one to push Benfica to the quarter finals in Champions League.
