Benfica vs CSKA Moscow: Preview & Prediction
Given that Manchester United are favorites to win the group and Basel are the worst team in the group, so we have a “6” points match in the first match.
Benfica comes from a tight win for the Portuguese championship in the Luz against Portimonense by 2 to 1. The Portuguese team lost some important players of the defensive sector,
like the right side and the defender and the team is in trouble to find a substitute the height, since Luisão is no longer a boy and needs a companion who has a quality in a hurry.
Already CSKA come from the playoffs eliminating the Young Boys in a quiet way, already in the Russian league the team comes and a victory by the minimum score against the team of Amkar.
A team that frequently attends European competitions for being one of the forces in their country, CSKA has a difficult mission where many treat it as the third force of the group.
The main player of the attack is Vitinho, player that was in the International and stands out for its speed and capacity of finalization so much as left leg as with the right.
I believe that it will be a balanced game and not easy for the Benfica team, but as mentioned before, it is a direct confrontation and Benfica can not afford to lose any point here,
because if this happens, you will have to get something out of Portugal and this can be a more complicated task. I see a Benfica with a better team, even with their defensive problems
and so I believe in a victory of the Portuguese team, mainly for the offensive capacity of the team that can take a goal and make two.
