Liverpool vs. Benfica Betting Prediction

When it comes to Benfica versus Liverpool, the Reds are on another level. Benfica is a solid Portuguese Liga squad. But they’re not nearly as good Pool. Liverpool was out of sorts early on in the contest versus Man City. But the Reds picked it up enough to grab the draw.

A draw does nothing for Liverpool’s chances of winning the Premier League, which means the Reds won’t hold back versus Benfica. Liverpool has a 2-goal lead over Benfica. They’ve got a 3 road goals lead. But even with the lead, Liverpool won’t take it easy. The Reds know the draw makes it very difficult to catch Manchester City and win the EPL.

So from now until the end of the season, Jurgen Klopp’s squad is going to concentrate on winning the Champions League. Expect Liverpool to put forth another impressive effort. Like in the 1 st leg, Liverpool defeats Benfica by 2 goals.
