JefeBet Prediction

This could be a close game (even if Benfica is considered the favorite), but it is indeed the Portuguese’s game to lose. We anticipate a surprise because both teams are making their Champions League debuts in this season, and we expect the points to be distributed evenly between the two teams.

Pick: Tie.
