Benfica – Lech Poznan – Betting Prediction Review for 03.12.2020

Benfica hosts Lech Poznan at the Estadio da Luz in a fixture from Group D of Europa
League. Here are our soccer predictions for this week regarding this game.
We expected that Benfica wouldn’t have any problems to win this group, but right now they
are just second in the standings with 8 points. They have the same amount of points as
the leader Rangers, but the Scottish side did better in the direct clashes so far. This is
giving them some advantage, but the race is far from over.
The Portuguese giants started their campaign with two consecutive wins, but in their last
two matches they made two draws against Steven Gerrard’s Rangers. Last week these
two teams faced each other at the Ibrox in Glasgow and it ended with a 2-2 draw. The
Scottish side had two goals advantage actually, but Benfica managed to scrap for a point
after an own goal from Tavernier and an equalising goal from Pizzi.
During the weekend Benfica achieved a win in the Portuguese Primeira Liga. Jorge Jesus’
team visited Maritimo and went home with a 2-1 win. Pizzi and Everton scored for the
visiting team.
Lech Poznan are currently third in this group with 3 points won so far and they only chance
of progression is to win on Thursday. Winning at Da Luz is complicated, but the Polish
team doesn’t have any other option at the moment.
One win and three losses – this is Lech’s record in Europa League so far. In the first round
of the group stage they hosted Benfica in Poznan, but the match ended with a 2-4 win for
the Portuguese club.
That’s our soccer predictions for this week for the Europa League fixture between Benfica
and Lech Poznan at Estadio da Luz. The Portuguese giants are favourites to take the win
here, that’s for sure.
