Benfica-Dinamo Zagreb,Europa League Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR BENFICA - ZAGREB
Benfica made a terrible failure against Belenenses on Monday after having led 2-0 and conceded two quick goals for 2-2, then failed to react, so their victory over Porto was meaningless to some extent, as the dragons have the same points right now. It is questionable what the eagles ‘greatest desire is, as few people know of Benfica’ s so called bad curse in European tournaments and how strongly they want to interrupt it. Excluding this bad result with Belenenses Benfica is a very strong team and an extremely uncompromising host.
Dynamo Zagreb can not be in better shape. They will certainly become champions in Croatia, especially after making a unique come back against Rijeka and again demonstrating their champions mentality. The difference is now 17 points 12 rounds before the end, which is eloquent. Of course, there are still a few commitments to the Cup, but the main task is Europa League after dominating totally in Croatia. Dynamo are in a great series of official games without losing.
For Benfica, the task is complicated, because they have to look for the goal, but do not allow one, because they will have to score at least 3 goals in total. Dynamo can take advantage of this. The basis of our prediction here is the very great Croatian motivation that we saw in the last match. For them, this is a much more important match from Benfica, who are in a big battle for the title in Portugal, and we have seen how they are defending even against a team like Belenenses, even though it has nothing to do with a match in Europa League. The odds are quite high, but we think it is still worth it and Dynamo will be able to score at least a goal. Prediction – BTTS at 2.05.
- Dinamo has scored at least 10 goals in all consecutive games in all competitions
- Benfica scored 16 goals in the last 4 home games in all competitions
