Benfica take on the visitors Inter in the round 5 match of UEFA Champions League group stage. The match will be played on Wednesday, November 29th at Estádio da Luz (Lisbon).
Benfica have been disappointing in the current tournament. Under Roger Schmidt, the "Eagles" managed to reclaim their status as the strongest club in the Primeira Liga, winning the previous championship. They will try to defend their title this season, although it's challenging to identify a clear favorite among the three familiar contenders. However, a significant setback occurred in the Champions League. The "Red and Whites," who used to secure a place there, even outpacing Barcelona, failed to earn a single point in four attempts this time. It's as if the team has not recovered from the shock of the first round when they suffered a defeat to the nominal underdog, Red Bull Salzburg, due to crude mistakes by Trubin and company. Subsequent losses followed against Inter and Real Sociedad.

Inter reached the final of the Champions League last season. However, a glance at the squad for that match reveals how significantly the team has changed since then, having lost many key players for various reasons. Despite this, Inter looks competitive again, leading in Serie A and collecting 10 out of 12 possible points in the Champions League (only drawing with Real Sociedad in San Sebastian). Currently, they can focus on Serie A as Simone Inzaghi's proteges are unlikely to miss out on the knockout stage.
In the spring, the clubs played in the Champions League quarterfinals. The Italians settled matters in the first match in Lisbon, confidently winning. After that, they drew in Milan. The chances for both teams are considered equal. However, the "Nerazzurri" are capable of winning again by inertia. In this regard, we place our bet on the visitors with a handicap of "0."
Prediction for the match: Inter to win with 0.0 handicap.
