Midtjylland vs Benfica – Top Predictions & Free Betting Tips

Midtjylland have gone through some big scores in recent weeks and the 4-1 loss from the first leg leaves the Danish outfit in a very bad shape with regards to getting qualification to the play-offs. Benfica have had back-to-back wins since the new season began.

Benfica Win

Benfica are looking extremely strong in this new campaign and they have registered back-to-back big victories in the Champions League and the domestic league. Even though Benfica have not done very well in away Champions League matches, with only one win in the last six, they have better chance in this qualifiers than against the top teams in the competition proper.

Both teams to score – yes

Benfica have started the season in excellent scoring form, but this away match will be a huge test of their character. There will be a major threat from Midtjylland, who were able to score a goal in the first leg. Now, home support will further help Midtjylland to grab a goal in this game.

Midtjylland vs Benfica: Battle for the Champions League Play-Offs

Midtjylland have had a difficult run of form over the last few weeks with the team scoring and conceding a lot of goals of late. This does not bode well for a team who had to recover at least three goals in the span of 90 minutes. One positive element for Midtjylland will be home support.

Midtjylland Predicted Line-Up:

Olafsson, Sviatchenko, Dalsgaard, Andersson, Juninho, Dyhr, Sisto, Dreyer, Charles, Sorensen, Kaba

Benfica have certainly produced a brilliant start to the new season under Rodger Schmidt. The 55-year-old has overseen back-to-back big victories at home, but it will be difficult to replicate the same in away matches. So far, the German has a 100% record against Midtjylland in all competitions.

Benfica Predicted Line-Up:

Vlachodimos, Otamendi, Gilberto, Alex Grimaldo, Morato, Joao Mario, Rafa Silva, Florentino Luis, Fernandez, David Neres, Goncalo Ramos
