Benfica vs Juventus Predictions and Picks
If you are struggling to find the right bet for Benfica vs Juventus, check our top betting tips for this game right here:
Benfica to Win
While Juventus can still stay in the race for second place if they can pull off a win over Benfica in Lisbon, they would also need to beat PSG after that and hope for Benfica's slip against Maccabi Haifa.
So, the guests are in a pretty tough spot, while Benfica only has to avoid a loss here to secure their spot in the next round. And given the form of both teams since the start of the season, we can actually see Benfica winning this game rather than Juventus getting it.
Dusan Vlahovic to Score at Any Time
Although we expect the home team to win, we can see the guests scoring a goal in this game. After all, both teams did score in the first duel between these teams.
So, with Dusan Vlahovic being the team's top scorer this season and in good form, we can see the Serbian striker getting on the scoresheet on Tuesday as well.

Benfica vs Juventus Preview: Recent Form, News, and Potential Lineups
This will be a very interesting match, so make sure to check our preview of the teams ahead of the duel:
It's been a while since the season started and Benfica is still without a loss in all competitions. In Primeira, the team from Lisbon has nine wins and one draw, which obviously puts them in the first place in the standings. On top of that, Benfica has a couple of wins and a couple of draws in their Champions League group and they are very close to securing a spot in the next stage.
Meanwhile, Benfica will have to manage without injured Morato and Julian Draxler in the next match.
Benfica Predicted Lineup:
Vlachodimos – Gilberto, Silva, Otamendi, Grimaldo – Fernandez, Luis – Mario, Rafa, Neres – Ramos
The Old Lady struggled this season all over the board, but we are seeing them doing better in Serie A recently where they won there of their last four games. Still, Juventus remains in the eighth place in the standings, which is far away from their ambitions. Things in Champions League have been even worse, especially after a loss to Maccabi Haifa, and Juventus needs a small miracle to reach the next stage.
Juventus is also struggling with injuries since Bremer, Mattia Di Sciglio, Leandro Paredes, and Angel Di Maria are all out right now, while Paul Pogba and Federico Chiesa are questionable.
Juventus Predicted Lineup:
Perin – Cuadrado, Bonucci, Bremer, Di Sciglio – McKennie, Paredes, Miretti – Kean, Kostic, Vlahovic
