UEFA EUROPA LEAGUE PICK
Benfica are 2.45 favourites in this one and are a casualty of the UEFA Champions League. They came third in their group and just couldn’t get the goals going against the superior opposition. It was always going to be a tough group with Bayern Munich and Ajax in it, but at least they beat AEK Athens twice.
UEFA EUROPA LEAGUE | Dinamo Zagreb – Benfica
When: 12:55 PM ET, Thursday, March 7th, 2019
Where: Stadion Maksimir, Zagreb, Croatia
TV Coverage: ESPN, Fox Sports
Round of 16, 1st Leg
Benfica responded well in the Europa League with a 2-1 victory over Galatasaray followed by a 0-0 draw at home as they did what was needed.They’re on a great run domestically and just got that big 2-1 win over Porto.
Dinamo Zagreb are solid enough but they had their issues in the group stages and got lucky against Viktoria Plzen, who they almost lost to.
I just think there is a gulf in quality here despite Zagrebs excellent home form domestically. Benfica are just too good for them in my opinion and much like the game in Turkey – will want to leave with some away goals in the bag.
Check out yesterday’s Champions League pick where nailed all 3 of my bets.
I don’t see them losing today so here are my picks:
Pick 1: Benfica to Win (+145)
Pick 2: Benfica Wins DNB (-163)
