Betting suggestion:

The most likely scenario is that Benfica will be in front before half-time. We expect the home team to dominate the match from early on and to try to score an early goal, which would allow them to control the match and avoid surprises. Therefore, with the use of the home advantage, the most likely scenario is that the home team will reach its goal. This betting suggestion has expired...
