Here's our Benfica vs Rangers Prediction analysis: Benfica vs Rangers PredictionIn one of the matches billed to go down in the Europa League this week, Portuguese giants Benfica lock horns with Rangers at the Estadio da Luz on Thursday evening, both sides battling for bragging rights, and more importantly, maximum points.
Match status: 2020/21 Europa League - Group Stage
Venue: Estádio da Luz (Lisbon)
One of the biggest clubs in the Portuguese Primeira Liga, Benfica form a bunch known as the ‘Big Three’ alongside FC Porto and Sporting Lisbon. They are one of the few clubs to have never been relegated from the league’s top division.

Also, the Eagles are the most successful side in the country with a rich history of titles, amassing a staggering 83 trophies since their inception. They will be hopeful of adding to that tally with a surprise run in the Europa League this season.

Benfica vs Rangers Team News

Romping through the Primeira Liga last season, Benfica easily steamrolled to the top of the standings to clinch the league title for the umpteenth time. They were streets ahead of every other side in the cluster, and well-deserving of the triumph.

Despite impressing domestically, the Eagles failed to replicate their strong performances in the third qualifying round of the Champions League where they were knocked out by Greek side PAOK. Following the defeat, Benfica were relegated to Europa League football.

It is pretty disturbing to see Portugal’s best side competing in Europe’s secondary competition as it doesn’t bode well for the Primeira Liga. However, Jorge Jesus’ men can make up for this disappointment with a lengthy run in this competition.

So far, Benfica are on the right track. They have secured maximum points from their opening two fixtures – their most recent EL fixture seeing them dispatch Standard Liege with relative ease, firing three unanswered goals past them.

As things stand, they are top of Group D, level on points with matchday three opposition Rangers, but holding the upper hand with their superior goal difference. In the domestic league, they have been quick off the blocks, sitting second on the log after six matches.

Rangers, on the other hand, are also enjoying a fantastic start to their Europa League campaign, picking up every point on offer so far. Their most recent fixture saw them work their asses off to see off minnows Lech Poznan by a narrow 1-0 win.

In the Scottish Premiership, they have been magnificent, sitting at the summit with 35 points from their opening thirteen games. So far, they are yet to suffer a single defeat, and are well on their way to clinching the league title. That aside, the Gers will turn attentions to the EL for the time being.

Injured or Suspended Players

Benfica: Jean-Clair Todibo, Andre Almeida and Alejandro Grimaldo.

Rangers: Nikola Katic, Jordan Jones and George Edmundson.

Benfica vs Rangers Predictions

While these two sides have won their opening two Europa League games, Benfica’s victories are far more convincing. They have scored a massive seven goals so far, as opposed to Rangers’ three. However, it is worth noting that the Gers haven’t conceded so far.

Though Benfica are slight favorites for the win, we cannot vouch for them to deliver all three points safely. Hence, the safest punt is a double chance backing the Eagles for victory.
