Reason For RB Leipzig vs Benfica Betting Tips

Red Bull Leipzig have enjoyed a good Champions League campaign this year with just a 2-0 loss to Lyon in matchweek two being the only blemish. They’ve won their other three games and are on the brink of qualification with just a point needed in this game to assure them a place in the round of 16.

Group G hasn’t been the highest scoring, with an average of 2.87 goals per game, and this remains the case in Leipzig’s games; the Germans’ matches averaging exactly 2.5 goals. Each of their games have finished 2-0 or 2-1 so far and they’ll probably be looking for another tight game, without much to pick from between the two sides. 

Despite having obvious talent, Benfica haven’t had a good time in the Champions League with just one win and, although they can still qualify from Group G, they need to win both their final games to stand a chance. Qualification to the Europa League looks a lot more likely. Their final group game against Zenit looks like it could be a decider for who enters Europe’s second competition at the round of 32. 

Both sides will be looking to find the net in this game as they chase down their respective goals for the campaign and this should lead to an open game. We think the 2.5 goal line should be beaten. Both teams will be trying to find the advantage and there should be plenty of chances at either end of the pitch. 

The quality Red Bull Leipzig possess in the final third should be enough for them to find just about enough to win and we’re predicting the Germans should pick up another 2-1 win in their Champions League run. There isn’t too much between the sides and a slender win for the hosts looks the likeliest result.
