The Primeira Liga leader, the Benfica team, has a tough task at the start of his Champions League tournament. The Portuguese team qualified for the group stage after eliminating the PAOK team and before removing the Turkish Fenerbahce. Benfica always strives for good results in European club tournaments and the goal ahead is at least second in this group. The hosts will be welcome to take a point against Bayern Munich on Estadio da Luz, and victory will even give them hopes of winning the group.
The Benfica team has so far had no success in their eight games against the Bavarians. Bayern Munich won five of these matches and seems unlikely to lose in Lisbon. The visitors lost only one of their last 12 matches against Portugal in the Champions League. Bayern have won seven of these matches, and indeed their class is much higher than the Primeira Liga teams. Bayern Munich eliminated Porto in the 2014/15 season on the 1/4-finals, with a 6:1 success in the home and wiping out the 1:3 defeat on Portuguese land.
Niko Kovac’s graduates beat Bayer Leverkusen with 3:1 during the weekend and before that they beat Stuttgart 3-0 as guests.
