Benfica v Galatasaray Team News

Benfica are heading into the return leg at home with the two-goal first-leg lead they took in the 2-1 win over Turkish side Galatasaray last week and should feel inspired after winning 3-0 away to Aves at the weekend.

Benfica's Haris Seferovic has scored an incredible 7 goals in 5 of his team's last 6 outings - including the Istanbul trip - and, furthermore, there have been just three games out of last 13 the Swiss forward has failed to score in. Interestingly enough, if he has scored in a match this season, Benfica will not have lost this one.

His goal anytime is at the odds of 2.25 with 1xBet in our anytime goalscorer predictions.

Galatasaray's slip-up last week meant it put their unbeaten run of 11 games to a halt and them in a rather unfavourable position ahead of Thursday's journey to Portugal. One goal with no reply from the home team will be sufficient for Galatasaray to progress but the task is hardened when they meet a side who have netted in every home game except for when Bayern beat them 2-0.

To make things bitter for the away team, Fatih Terim's outfit have scored more than one goal in just three matches of their previous 16 away from home since August 2018. They have also lost all three of their Champions League group stage matches away from home and failed to score a goal in that time.

Teams' Potential Starting Line-ups:

Benfica (4-4-2): Vlachodimos; Ribeiro, Ferro, Dias, Corchia; Cervi, Luis, Fernandes, Pizzi; Felix, Seferovic.

Galatasaray (4-3-3): Muslera; Nagatomo, Marcao, Luyindama, Mariano; Ndiaye, Donk, Belhanda; Onyekuru, Diagne, Feghouli.

Injured or Suspended Players:

Benfica: Eduardo Salvio, Jardel, Lubomir Fejsa, Tyronne Ebuehi, German Conti.

Galatasaray: Fernando, Martin Linnes.
