Under 3.5 goals

Benfica vs Arsenal 18.02.2021

By their standards, both of these teams have had less than ideal league campaigns this season. Benfica are 4th in the Portuguese top-flight, 10 points off the leaders Sporting. In this competition though, they did fairly well in their group finishing unbeaten with 3 wins and 3 draws in the 6 group games which was good enough for second place in group D.

Arsenal’s 4-2 win over Leeds on Sunday stopped upended a 2 game losing streak and momentarily prevented Leeds from pushing them into the lower half of the table. They have struggled for consistency in the league. In sharp contrast, however, they were outstanding in this competition, winning all six of the group games to top group B with a perfect record. 

Benfica have proven a hard nut to crack in their backyard. They haven’t lost any of their last 10 home games and have kept a clean sheet in 6 of them. We expect them to play it tight in this first leg and we are backing Under 3.5 goals as our to the game.

Main tip: Under 3.5 goals (go to tip details)
