Benfica v Man United Team News

Benfica come into this game in a poor run of form in European competition. They have conceded 2+ goals in 5 of their last 6 and each of these games finished with over 2.5 goals.

Benfica have lost their last 3 games in the Champions League (CL) whilst Manchester United have won their last 2, scoring 7 goals in the process.

United have lost to Benfica only once in the 9 meetings to date - a 2-1 defeat at Benfica in the CL group stage of ‘05/’06. (W6, D2, L1). United won their 1st ever European Cup by beating Eusébio’s Benfica in 1968.

United have averaged 6.6 corners per game this season and 10.75 including the opponent. The Red Devils average 1.3 cards, 16 shots, and 6 shots on target per game this season.

Benfica have left it late recently, as a quarter of all of their goals this season were scored in the last 15 minutes of a game. They have, however, despite European form, gained 17 points from 8 games domestically (W5, D2, L1).
