      Analysis: Benfica vs Atlético Madrid (08 December 2015)
      « Reply #1 on: December 07 2015, 11:32 »

      Benfica and Atlético Madrid meet at Estádio do Sport Lisboa and Benfica (da Luz), in a match for this stage of the UEFA Champions League (Group Stage). In this match the home advantage may play an important role, as both teams present significant differences between home and away performances.

      Analysis of Benfica

      After 3 wins, 1 draw and 1 loss, the home team is currently in the 2nd position, with 10 points won. In the last match, they have tied (2‑2) in an away match against Astana, after in the previous round they have won (2‑1) at home against Galatasaray. This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, stronger with the help of its supporters, since in the last 30 matches they register 6 wins, 4 draws and 5 losses in away matches, with 22 goals scored and 14 conceded; against 11 wins, 1 draw and 3 losses at their stadium, with 37 goals scored and 12 conceded. In their last match, for the Primeira Liga, they got a home win against Académica by (3‑0). In the last 10 home matches Benfica has won 8 and lost 2. They haven't been very strong defensively, since they have suffered goals in 4 of the last 5 matches, but their offense has scored frequently, since they have scored goals in all of the last 5 matches for this competition. There is a tendency for goals in their home matches, since 20 of the last 29 have ended with Over 2,5 goals. This is a team that likes to score first. They have opened up the score in 7 of the last 9 matches, they have reached half‑time in front in 4 of those 7 matches and have held on to the lead until the end of the 90' in 5 of them.

      Benfica gets to this match after beating Académica at home by 3-0 which means they are invincible for seven matches in regular time. The portuguese team has already secured his qualification to the next phase so we expect that the manager Rui Vitória will opt for an offensive approach trying to earn another victory and the consequent monetary award. Into this match, Nélson Semedo, Salvio and Luisão are the main absences of the team due to injury.

      Analysis of Atlético

      The away team is currently in the 1st position, with 10 points won, after 3 wins, 1 draw and 1 loss. In the penultimate round, they have tied an away match against Astana by (0‑0). In the last round, they have won a home match against Galatasaray by (2‑0). This is a team that usually gets better results in away matches than at home, since in the last 30 matches they register 10 wins, 4 draws and 1 loss in away matches, with 23 goals scored and 4 conceded; against 9 wins, 3 draws and 3 losses at their stadium, with 22 goals scored and 7 conceded. In their last match, for the Primera División, they got an away win against Granada by (0‑2). In the last 10 away matches Atlético Madrid has won 7, tied 2 and lost 1. Defensive consistency has been one of their best features, as they have only conceded goals in 1 of the last 5 matches, and their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 4 of the last 5 matches for this competition.

      Atlético de Madrid comes to this match really motivated after winning at Granada by 2-0. This was his sixth consecutive victory in official matches. Just like their opponent in this match, we expect that Diego Simeone plays offensively trying to win the match to rescue the first place. Into this match, Tiago and Jackson Martínez are the main absences due to injury. 

      Betting suggestion:

      We are previewing some goals at this match. Both teams should play open and there might be plenty of goal opportunities for both sides because the first place is to decide. So, we are expecting a good number of goals in this important match.
