Our prediction for this Europa League match:
All eyes will be on Estadio da Luz when Benfica and Rangers face each other in the Europa League derby. The Eagles made a flying start to the season, with the team producing excellent displays in all competitions. Benfica aim to get their job done in Group D as soon as possible, and we are positive that they will go for a win in Thursday’s football match. The likes of Almeida and Grimaldo are sidelined with injury for the hosts, while Svilar and Todibo should recover in time to face Rangers.
The Gers are enjoying a successful season as well, but it seems as if the team’s main goal is to put an end to Celtic’s dominance in the Scotland Premiership. Steven Gerrard’s troops defeated Lech Poznan at home in round 2, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry against Benfica. Defender Nikola Katic is likely to miss the game with injury for the visitors.
