On Thursday night, the remaining 16 teams in the Europa League fight for the quarter-finals. The second leg game that we have found in the football schedule is between Benfica Lisbon and Dinamo Zagreb will face off in the Estadio da Luz. The Croatian champions won the first leg 1:0 last week. Now the Eagles from Lisbon want to return the first defeat under the new coach Bruno Lage and of course move into the round of the last eight.
Both sides have already met four times so far. The 1:0 in the first leg game was the first victory for Zagreb in a direct duel. Previously, there had been a draw and two victories for the hosts. Petkovic's penalty gave Dinamo Zagreb their first goal against Benfica. For Benfica, it was the first defeat in six games against Croatian teams. Also, there are also three wins and two draws. Dinamo Zagreb has played twelve times against teams from Portugal. The record here is four wins, one draw and seven defeats as well. In the first leg game, Zagreb was behind the ball with eleven men. In addition, the hosts took over the command from the 20th minute and rewarded themselves with the lead. Also in the second round, there was rarely a come through for the “Eagles” from Lisbon.
Qualitatively, the Eagles are certainly superior to the Croats. The great home game record in the Europa League speaks for Benfica Lisbon. But the big threat to the hosts lies in the away goal of Dinamo. And then Lisbon needs three goals. Nevertheless, we were in the second leg Benfica against Benfica. Dinamo Zagreb decides against a prediction on the final result in the game. Certainly, the guests will put everything on the away goals and we trust them. Benfica also hits is out of the question for us. Thus, we set in the duel Benfica against Lisbon. Our tip for this amazing contest is Both teams to score: YES.
