1st Half Draw

Benfica vs Barcelona 29.09.2021

Benfica have been on a tear coming into this game. They are undefeated in their last 19 matches across all competitions (15W, 4D). They claimed the scalp of PSV over two legs on their way to booking a ticket for the group phase but started off with a disappointing 0-0 draw at Dynamo Kyiv on opening night.

Barcelona on the other hand have been reeling on the edge following the upheavals on and off the pitch in the club this summer that culminated with the exit of talisman Lionel Messi who took his talents to the French capital, Paris to play for PSG. After back-to-back draws in the league, they finally caught a break with a much-needed 3-0 win over Levante at the weekend.

Both teams were less than pleased with their opening rounds and they will be looking to respond here. We fancy this will be a tight affair particularly to begin the game and we are backing them to be level at the break
