By using the Amsterdam squad’s confidence against them. Benfica knows that Pool may be overlooking them some in the first leg. The Leg 2 aggregate match happens at Anfield.

Liverpool vs. Benfica Betting Prediction

Benfica is a good team, but they’re up against one of the best in the world on Tuesday. Liverpool isn’t just one of the best in the world. They might be the best soccer club on the planet. No team is playing with as much confidence as the Reds.

Also, we shouldn’t expect Liverpool to fail in the first leg. Although this is a road match, Liverpool dominated Inter in the first leg during the Round of 16. Pool blasted Inter Milan 2-0 and that happened on Inter’s pitch. The Reds last loss happened versus the Serie A squad in the second leg at Anfield, but Pool didn’t have to do much to move on because they had built a big lead.

Road goals mean more than home goals, which is why we should expect Pool to turn it on in this. The Red will win by at least 2 goals. They could win by 3.
