Benfica vs PAOK Betting Tips
Benfica is seen as a favorite of betting houses, which does not surprise anyone, being a more valuable but more experienced team, also benefiting from the advantage of their own land, where they rarely climb.
“Eagles” started their European adventure in the current season in the third round of the Europa League preliminaries, playing with Fenerbahce, which they defeated 2-1 in general.
Rui Vitória’s team did well in the domestic championship, where he scored six points after two rounds, winning with Guimaraes and Boavista, against which he scored five goals, receiving two.
Benfica will not be able to count on Krovinovic, Ebuehi and Castillo, all being injured, while Jonas is uncertain, the Brazilian coming back after an injury.
On the other side, PAOK is ranked second in betting houses, as expected, and will face a more valuable opponent, but also with a richer experience in European competitions, and will also have a difficult job, taking into account that she is playing away.
The Greeks, unlike their rivals, have begun since the second round of the Champions League preliminaries, defeating Basel first with 5-1 in general, then passing Spartak Moscow with 3-2 in the double hand.
So in the four games so far, PAOK has won three wins and a draw, matches in which he scored eight times, receiving three goals.
Razvan Lucescu, unlike his counterpart, has no batch problems, so he can send out the best 11 in the field.
