Benfica vs Marseille Match Preview And Prediction

Benfica vs Marseille:  In their five home European matches this season, Benfica has failed to maintain a clean sheet in any of them. After defeating Villarreal and Shakhtar Donetsk in the first two Europa League rounds, Marseille looked strong. In their last two domestic meetings with Sporting CP, Benfica conceded two goals in each game.

Marseille and Benfica will both continue to have demanding schedules this week. At Estadio da Luz on Thursday night, the two teams will play their first leg of the UEFA Europa League quarterfinal. There will be no joyful entry into the tie for either outfit. In recent weeks, both of them have experienced difficult home losses.

Sporting Lisbon’s 1-2 away victory in the massive city derby has put a serious stop to Benfica’s hopes of winning the domestic championship. The Eagles now trail Sporting Lisbon by four points atop the Primeira Liga rankings. Even worse, Sporting is currently playing a game. Thanks to their 2-2 tie at Luz last week, Sporting also eliminated Benfica from Taca de Portugal, winning 4-3 on aggregate.

On Friday, Marseille dropped their fourth straight game in all competitions. They lost 1-3 at Lille. As a result, Jean Louis Gasset’s are gradually losing the struggle for European spots in the national league. Following the most recent defeat, the Phocians fell to eighth position in the Ligue 1 standings.

Benfica vs Marseille: Betting Analysis

This season, Benfica has not impressed in any way in Europe. After a disappointing Champions League group stage campaign, a handful of lackluster Europa League knockout stage matches against teams like Toulouse and Rangers were encountered.

There will also be a lasting impression from the most recent losses in both Taca da Portugal and Primeira Liga against fierce local rivals Sporting CP. Although Marseille hasn’t been playing at their best lately, we don’t think they are the underdog in this game. At odds of 1.90, the value is with the visitors to escape Portugal undefeated.

At 1.66 odds, it’s impossible to go wrong with the selection of Both Teams To Score. In their last ten days of matches, Benfica has conceded two goals in each of their previous meetings with Sporting Lisbon. Over the course of four games in all competitions, Marseille gave up at least two goals. Last but not least, in the past four head-to-head meetings between these rivals, both teams scored goals.

Who will win the match between Benfica and Marseille?

Our opinion is that Marseille needs everything to go their way in order to win against this Benfica squad, who we believe has a good chance of scoring at least once to take the lead. As a result, we are picking a fiercely contested match in which Benfica will have an advantage when the referee signals for full time.
