Benfica vs Dynamo Kiev Prediction & Betting Tip

Benfica vs Dynamo Kiev predictions for Tuesday night’s Champions League clash. Benfica hope to move into the top two spots in their Champions League group.

Benfica vs Dynamo Kiev
When: 1st November, 19:45
Where: Estádio do Sport Lisboa e Benfica
Prediction: Benfica to Win and Both Teams to Score at 11/4 with bet365
Correct Score Prediction: Benfica to Win 3-1 at 12/1 with bet365

Benfica have been dominant in the Portuguese Primeira Liga so far this season, with their 3-0 win over Pacos de Ferreira on Friday putting them five points clear of Porto in 2nd place. However, they still have a lot of work to do in the Champions League.

They beat Tuesday’s opponents Dynamo Kiev 2-0 away from home in their last group stage match, but a draw at home to Besiktas and a 4-2 defeat at Napoli leaves them 3rd in the table with a two point disadvantage on leaders Napoli. Dynamo Kiev sit bottom with just one point, but this has proven to be a very open Champions League group so far.

Benfica will take heart from their recent performances though. They have markedly improved from a rather inconsistent start to the season, with each of their last five competitive games ending in a win and four of them seeing them keep a clean sheet as well.

In the absence of Jonas, Kostas Mitroglou has stepped up to the plate domestically with four Primeira Liga goals in seven appearances, whilst Eduardo Salvio has four as well, with two of them being in the Champions League. Mitroglou is likely to be the main threat going forward for Benfica though, so he’s a good choice for the anytime goalscorer market.

Dynamo Kiev do have some dangerous players in their ranks, but they haven’t really stepped up to the plate in the Champions League yet. Moraes has six goals in the Ukrainian Premier League but none in the Champions League, whilst Andriy Yarmolenko has only netted twice in what has been a very disappointing opening spell of the season.

The visitors have only won four of their last 13 matches in all competitions, with four defeats and five draws making up the rest of the results and putting them eight points adrift of Shakhtar Donetsk in the league and bottom of their Champions League group.

Away from home they are unbeaten this season, but they have drawn four of their last five matches. Benfica, on the other hand, have won their last three home matches and scored ten goals in the process.

Despite Dynamo Kiev’s rather poor start to the season, they have managed to find the net in all of their away games this season. At home they are much less consistent, with three of their last eight outings seeing them fail to score. This makes their chances of scoring on Tuesday quite high despite their 2-0 loss to Benfica at home, especially since Benfica have conceded in half of their home games this term as well.

I definitely can’t see the visitors keeping Benfica off the scoresheet though, and I think Benfica will get the win as well so backing a Benfica Win and Both Teams to Score at 11/4 looks a very good choice. I’m going for a 3-1 correct score prediction at 12/1 as well.

HEAD TO HEAD
Benfica won the only previous meeting with Dynamo Kiev 2-0 in October.

STATS
Dynamo Kiev have scored in 100% of their away games this season, whilst Benfica have seen both teams score in 50% of their matches at home.

TEAM NEWS
Striker Jonas remains sidelined for Benfica.
Dynamo Kiev are expecting to have a fully fit squad available on Tuesday.

Prediction: Benfica to Win and Both Teams to Score at 11/4 with bet365
