Our prediction for this Europa League match:
All eyes will be on Estadio da Luz when Benfica and Standard Liege face each other in the Europa League round 2. The Eagles kicked off their Europa League campaign in style, with the team rolling over Lech Poznan 4-2, and they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play against the Red Devils. Benfica rolled over Rio Ave 3-0 in the national championship at the weekend, and it is no wonder the odds for home win have been dropping.
A man to watch in the home team will be Nunez, who scored a hat-trick in the Europa League opener. Standard Liege, on the other hand, failed to impress in a 2-0 home loss to Rangers, and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Benfica’s party at Estadio da Luz. It has to be noted that the Jupiler League outfit will be without several first-team regulars who were tested positive for coronavirus.
