Preview:
Benfica and Astana face at the Luz Stadium, Lisbon, in a match for the first round of Group C of the Champions League.
 
There is no head to head history between these two teams, since this is the first time Astana has reached the Champions League. Therefore, due to the quality of its squad and its history in this competition, Benfica is the favourite.

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.
