Inter Milan vs Benfica Predicted Lineups & Preview
Internazionale has won all four encounters with Benfica (W3 D1), maintaining a clean sheet in each of those games. This is thanks to their 2-0 victory in Portugal during the first leg. Benfica defeated Juventus 2-1 in the group stages of the UEFA Champions League, giving them their first victory against Italian opposition this season.
Prior to that game, they had lost all six of their previous encounters with Italian opponents (D1 L5). Their last victory against an Italian team came in the Cup Winners’ Cup in March 1997 against Fiorentina. In a UEFA Cup round of 16 matches played in March 2004 at Internazionale, Benfica was defeated by Internazionale 4-3.
Obafemi Martins of Inter and Nuno Gomes of Benfica both had hat tricks in the match. For the ninth occasion, Benfica failed to win the first leg of a two-legged European Cup/Champions League match by two goals or more. Only once before have they advanced from such a position, eliminating FC Nürnberg at the quarterfinal stage in 1961–1962, despite losing the first leg 1-3–they won the second game 6-0.
For the 9th time in the opposite match of this tie, Internazionale dominated the first leg of a two-legged European Cup/Champions League match by two goals or more; they have never been eliminated from such a position.
