Benfica vs Barcelona Preview and Livestream

Benfica are really in the running to qualify from a group where not many gave them any chance. With Barcelona and Bayern Munich, along with Dynamo Kiev, as the three teams, a third-place finish was seen as the most realistic target for the Eagles. But a 3-0 win at home changed all that. Now, they are in contention to qualify for the last 16.

Bayern Munich are already through with 4 wins from 4 but Barcelona, with two wins against Kiev, are at 6 points. Benfica stand third with 4 points but a win at Camp Nou would mean that Barcelona will have to beat Bayern Munich on matchday 6 to qualify. As for Benfica, a win means that beating the Ukrainians on last matchday confirms qualification for them.

Benfica predicted lineup vs Barcelona and Team News

The Portuguese team is not without their injury worries. Andre Almeida could miss the game with a muscle injury while Joao Mario is also suffering from back discomfort. Valentino Lazaro has a similar problem and is a doubt to start while Rodrigo Pinho may also just make the bench. But none of their injuries are serious and the quartet can all make the matchday squad for the game at Camp Nou for Jorge Jesus’ side.

Benfica vs Barcelona Prediction

Xavi’s Barcelona are still one of the top teams in Europe despite their decline in form. At Camp Nou, they are near unbeatable and Benfica would be wary of that. The Portuguese side would also be aware that a draw can do the job as if they beat Kiev and Barcelona don’t beat Bayern, Jesus’ side will progress. And we believe they have wat it takes to get a 1-1 draw here.
