Benfica vs Club Brugge Prediction & Pick
Club Brugge's poor effort against Benfica in the first leg of this showdown was just the latest of its struggles. The Farmers have posted a dismal 2-8-7 (W-D-L) record in all competition since the start of November and are now faced with needing to win in Lisbon to advance on Tuesday afternoon.
Benfica is an impressive 6-0-1 (W-D-L) in its last seven matches in all competition and controlled their first matchup against Club Brugge with 14 shots (4 on goal). The Eagles tallied 7 corners and were simply unfazed by the opponent's rowdy crowd. That crowd will be on their side this time around.
Look for Benfica to park the bus after a pair of early goals and advance to the quarterfinals for the first time since 2016.
Final Score Prediction: Benfica: 2 | Club Brugge: 1
