Fenerbahce – Benfica
Fenerbahce hosts Benfica in a second leg from the 3rd qualifying round of the Champions League. These are our vip soccer predictions today for this clash in the Turkish capital.
It’s clear that this is the big derby of the 3rd qualifying round of the CL. Benfica have the advantage now after winning the first game at home with 1-0. Franco Cervi scored the only goal in the game, giving Benfica a great result before the tough rematch in Istanbul. The Feneri tried to fight back and at least equalize, but Benfica’s defense did pretty well and did not allow to be penetrated.
One shall not think that Fenerbahce are dead just yet. We are speaking about one of Turkey’s biggest clubs, filled with really classy players. You can be sure that Fenerbahce will fight back at home soil and they will have the fanatical support of their fans. It won’t be easy for Benfica.
In the Turkish Super Lig Fenerbahce kicked off their campaign with a win. They beat Bursaspor with 2-1 at home, thanks to goals from Guiliano and Souza. It was not Fenerbahce’s best game, but all that matters are the three points, so they can be satisfied.
Meanwhile Benfica began the new season in the Primeira Liga with a win, too. The Eagles from Lisboa beat the visiting team of Vitoria Guimaraes with 3-2, thanks to a hattrick by Pizzi. But now for them it’s going to be much more difficult in Istanbul, where the atmosphere is pretty hostile for the visiting teams.
These are our vip soccer predictions today for the Champions League qualifier between Fenerbahce and Benfica. It’s sad that one of these two great teams will leave the competition, but it is what it is. We wish you a good luck with this one.
