The central battle of the nearest Tuesday can safely be considered the confrontation between the Portuguese Benfica and the Greek PAOK. The teams will meet in the fourth round of the Champions League qualification and will compete for the right to enter the group stage. At this stage, for the losing club, a consolation prize will be a hit in the Europa League.


The home team is quoted at the bookmakers as the favorites of the match. Whatever one may say, on the selection of players they are head and shoulders above their opponent.

"Eagles" for the current season were prepared together with the strongest, because they took part in the International Cup of Champions. In the debut battle, the guys on equal terms fought with Dortmund Borussia, and only in the penalty shootout managed to snatch victory. In the next game, the fortune was not so supportive of the Portuguese, so in the performance of 11-meter blows Juventus players were more accurate.


The last sparring ended in defeat from Lyon - the "red" were able to play two goals, but the French managed to score the third. After such training, no one doubted that the wards of Rui Vitoria could easily pass Fenerbahce. In the first match of the third round of qualification, the Champions League champions from Lisbon scored a minimum of victories, and then in Turkey they painted a profitable draw for them.



"Two-headed eagles" did not have the opportunity to compete in summer with the best clubs in Europe, but their pre-season training can not be called less productive. The team played six friendly sparring - twice the guys won, painted the world and were weaker. Together, this training allowed them to approach the battles on the euroarena in the best possible way.

The opponent was Basel, who was called the clear favorite of the pair. The minimal defeat in the first game did not affect the experts in any way, because they were sure that the Swiss at home would get the bill they needed. In fact, the Greeks won with a score of 0-3 and confidently passed on. The next opponent was Moscow Spartak, who lost in a battle battle on the road and did not show anything in his native walls.


Forecast for this match

The home team have shown themselves well on the MCH, so at the start of the season they must be in optimal shape. Future guests managed to shoot twice loudly, being in the status of an outsider. Now they have to pass the most difficult test. They will not play attacking football - their main task will not be missed.


In Lisbon at the stadium "Estadio da Luz" in the first duel of the final stage of qualifying the Champions League, local Benfica will take the Greek PAOK. In their history, these rivals held 4 full-time meetings and the score of victories in them was 3: 1 in favor of the "Portuguese". I wonder who will be stronger in the upcoming game of opponents?


In Portugal, Played 2 rounds and in both Benfica won with a total score of 5: 2 Benfica. As part of the selection of the European championship, the hosts passed one round. So, within the quarterfinal qualification stage, the players of Rui Vitoria outplayed by the sum of two fights Turkish Fenerbahce - 2: 1.

Bookmakers in the upcoming standoff on the side of Benfica. However, the "Greeks" are now in excellent shape, while acting very efficiently. Proceeding from this, it will be reasonable to put on goals in both directions.


We propose to bet on the outcome of "both score" for a high coefficient of 2.01

The central match of Tuesday in the Champions League is a confrontation between the silver medalists of the championships of Portugal and Greece. If Benfica regularly performs in the Champions League, then for PAOK this is a chance to show up there for the first time in a long time.


The Portuguese club successfully overcame Fenerbahce in the last qualifying round with a total score of 2: 1. In the national championship, the Eagles started out of two wins in two games. In addition, in July they performed at the International Cup of Champions. As we can see, already at this stage of the season, the wards of Rui Vitoria are in excellent game tone.

The qualification path of PAOK started a little earlier. First, the Greeks passed Swiss Basel 5: 1, and then left behind the tournament Russian Spartak - 3: 2. The local national championship has not started yet, so those four games remain the only ones in the season for Razvan Lucescu's charges. They intend to take advantage of the historic chance to light up at the most prestigious club tournament in the Old World.


Favorite of the first match (and the opposition in general) is a club from Portugal. Still Benfica has a better selection of performers who regularly play in the Champions League. Therefore, in Lisbon, the home team will win.

Benfica was dethroned as champion of Portugal last year after four titles in a row. As Aguias (The Eagles) participated for a long time in the title and even took the lead two months before the end of the competition, but a defeat in the direct game with FC Porto in April sealed the fate of the team of Rui Vitoria. In the end, Benfica finished in second place on seven points of her rival.

This second place means that Benfica has to survive two qualifying rounds to survive the Champions Leagues. Just like Ajax, the team has to play the so-called league round, which means that it will not be against the champions of countries low on the UEFA coefficient list, but against the numbers two and three of higher-ranked football countries.

The first hurdle was taken by switching off the Fenerbahce from Phillip Cocu. In Lisbon, 1-0 was won by a hit by Cervi. Benfica then held on in Istanbul and after Gedson Fernandes took his team ahead, the game was actually decided. Fenerbahce came no further than the equalizer of Alper Potuk.

Although PAOK Saloniki is a well-known name on the European fields, the Greeks never managed to qualify for the main tournament of the biggest European club tournament. In total, the qualifying tournament was four times the end of PAOK. A salient detail is that Ajax was responsible for the elimination of PAOK two times for the last time in the 2016/2017 season, when Ajax was subsequently eliminated by FK Rostov in the next round.

This season, PAOK and Ajax will be present in the final qualifying round. The team of the Romanian coach Razvan Lucescu, however, has had a much stronger opposition from the team from Amsterdam. PAOK was able to deal with FC Basel and Spartak Moscow in succession.

Especially disabling the wealthy Russians the previous round gave a sensation. In the home game in his own home, PAOK already trailed 0-2 within 17 minutes by hits from Popov and Promes. The Greeks however battled back in the first half and won 3-2 by hits from Pelkas, Limnios and Prijovic. The return in Moscow was then a lot less goal-oriented. PAOK held quite easily, partly due to a quick red card from Luiz Adriano. There was no score, which PAOK is one double encounter away from the champions ball


"Benfica" very easily dealt with "Fenerbahce" in the last round and before the group, she had only one step left. Will PAOK be beaten in Lisbon? Our forecast will give an answer.


"Benfica" in the last round was not the easiest opponent - the Turkish "Fenerbahce". At home the team of Rui Vitoria suffered for a long time and could not score, but in the second half the efforts of the hosts were rewarded and the Istanbul wall fell. Victory 1: 0 provided the "eagles" quite a comfortable advantage, but the Portuguese on the road were able to score an early goal and it became clear that it would be extremely problematic to win back the Turks. The match ended in a 1-1 draw, which brought Benfica to the next round.

PAOK on its way had already dared two rivals, each of which clearly was not inferior to the Greeks in the class. The first team Razvan Lucescu knocked out the Swiss "Basel", beating the opponent in two matches. Home match with the Moscow "Spartacus" began badly for PAOK - already in the 17th minute the guests scored two goals. However, the pressure of the team Lucescu paid off and already to break the Greeks scored three times. After home win 3: 2 PAOK held a tie in Moscow and went on.

"Benfica" is now in great shape, the team of Vitoria very easily passed "Fenerbahce" and won two wins in the championship of Portugal. PAOK, despite the passage of "Spartacus", was not reliable in the defense, and if it were not for removal of Luis Adriano in the Moscow match, it is unlikely that the Greeks would go to the next round. The houses "eagles" are ruthless towards rivals and will obviously strive to obtain a comfortable advantage in the home game.


In our opinion, the guests today can not withstand the pressure of the hosts. The forecast is the Asian handicap (-1) for "Benfica". In the Betting League, such a bet can be placed with a coefficient of 1.85.
