Benfica Lisabona vs PSV Eindhoven
We open the ticket of the day Casa Pariurilor - 18.08.2021 with the most interesting match, the one between Benfica and PSV Eindhoven. Benfica Lisbon had ten consecutive appearances in the Champions League groups in the period 2010-2020. In the last edition, he missed this performance for the first time, after a long time, being eliminated by PAOK Thessaloniki. A new failure would bring big problems to this club, at a financial level, because it lives in most of these European present and sales of players. He entered the competition directly in the third round, where he beat Spartak Moscow (2-0 and 2-0). Haris Seferovic, the main director, is injured. The Brazilian Everton remains the hope of the offensive.
PSV Eindhoven had an intense period of preparation and presented himself at the best level when the European meetings began. He entered the competition quite early, in the second round, and eliminated Galatasaray (5-1 and 2-1) and Midtjylland (3-0 and 1-0). He did not participate in groups from the 2018-2019 edition. That is why he really wants to return to the highest level. Eran Zahavi and Mario Gotze scored three times.
It is an interesting meeting between two valuable teams from Europe. The direct matches between the two have always been played and goals have been scored on both sides. Both marks I propose in this meeting.
Prerequisites for goals
I do not think that the temporary absence from the group stage of the Champions League will make these two teams more cautious.
Benfica is the more rational team. But they would hardly want to visit the Netherlands with the idea of solving everything there.
A PSV don't seem to have a plan B to play. And they will just play in their aggressive style.
How then not to expect goals in this match?
In addition, at least for now, everything is going perfectly in the official matches played by both teams.
And there is hardly a coach in the world who, in these circumstances, makes any changes to the tactics of the game.
Benfica and PSV are in top form
What exactly are the two teams at the moment?
Well, only victory and attack are the two words that best characterize them.
A total of four consecutive victories for Benfica with an 8-1 goal difference. And six wins for PSV with a 17-2 overall result.
This is the balance of the official meetings so far.
However, it is not an accidental phenomenon. And it is a continuation of the performance of these two teams from last season.
Benfica, for example, then as hosts scored an average of 1.82 and conceded 0.88 goals per game.
PSV scored 2.05 goals and 1.29 goals as guests.

Forecast for Benfica - PSV
Agree that everything is in favor of the very high probability that both teams will score in the match.
The only question is whether they will agree to a goal draw at some point in the match?
See… For me there are two options for the final outcome of this match:
- Draw with exact result 1-1.
- Any other result with a final winner and an exchange of goals.
The second option is actually in the scope of the type of bet that I offer you with my forecast for Benfica - PSV.
And it is significantly broader.
I will focus on it then. And a bet a little over the usual average.
