Benfica take on visitors from Germany in the Champions League quarterfinal match. The second leg will be played on Wednesday, April 13 at Estadio da Luz.
The hosts are leading in the domestic league. The team have the most productive offensive line in the league with 75 goals while defense keeps up and allowed only 25 goals. Jonas is the top scorer of the team and he can’t be a threat to Bayern defensive line due to suspension. The striker couldn’t convert few solid chances in Munich and now have to watch the bench. The first leg result (0-1) allow Benfica to count on the place in the semifinal but it still would be tough to reach in clash with one of the strongest sides in the world.

Bayern Munich is known for their possession football. The team allow almost no mistakes and take three points almost in every match. Control over possession is the key in Pep Guardiola’s approach to football and he succeeded in building the team that convert possession to victories. Bayern have no competitors in Bundesliga with the most goals scored and fewest goals allowed. They deserve their place in the quarterfinal and considered as one of the favorites of the competition despite failing to record confident victory at home. Portuguese side did their best for nullifying efforts of Lewandowski and Co. who rarely leaves the pitch without scoring at least once but still couldn’t avid defeat. We can expect Bayern to be more determined for the second leg and use their chances more carefully.
Bayern Munich are favorites despite being the visiting side (1.65) while victory of the hosts appears as unlike outcome (5.00). A draw that suite the visitors offered with 3.8 odd. Bookmakers don’t expect many goals (under 2.5 goals in the match – 1.8). Benfica don’t have many chances to eliminate skilled and in-form Bayern Munich in the quarterfinal stage. There no doubts Pep Guardiola’s men would press opponents and score at least once, but the visitor proved they know how pressure defensive line of the German champions and should convert one of the chances.
Prediction for the match: Both teams to score – yes.
