In one of the matches of the Champions League group stage, the main forces of Benfica and Bayern will clash. On whose side will the victory be in this duel? Our sports portal gives a forecast for this meeting.
The Lisbon team began its journey to the LCH with qualification, but there the Eagles team did not know any problems at all. In the meeting with Spartak, the Eagles scored four goals in two meetings without conceding in return. It was difficult with PSV, but a 2-1 home win helped the Lisbonians move on. In the first meeting of the group stage, Benfica had every chance to remain without points, but was able to hold a zero draw in Kiev, after which it scored a sensational result, defeating Barcelona 3-0 in its home walls.
As for Bayern, the Munich team is always considered one of the favorites to win the tournament. The current draw of the LCH is no exception. In the summer, the Bavarians were able to strengthen the center of defense and significantly rejuvenated the squad, adding creativity in the person of Zabitzer. In addition, one of the most promising mentors, Julian Nagelsman, was invited to the team camp. Bayern started in the LCH with two wins. It all started with a crushing victory over Barcelona at the Camp Nou, and continued with a home victory over Dynamo Kyiv with a result of 5:0.
Injuries and disqualifications:
- Gilberto (muscle injury), Lazaro (injury), Seferovic (injury) - all Benfica. Gorecka (illness), Davis (hip), Ulreich (knee) - all Bayern.
Statistics and figures:
