Benfica is in the great form. They’re at the top in Portuguese Liga, without lost match. In the last 16 home matches, they’re not defeated (15 won matches and 1 draw).
In the 1/8 final, they demonstrated their power by beating Bordeaux twice and showed that they are one of the main candidate to win this competition.
Newcastle have a huge problems with injured players.
Out will be Tioté, Haidara, Ben Arfa and Coloccini, while Debuchy and Gouffran have no right to play.
This season, Benfica have scored 102 goals in all competitions. Very impressive.
We expect home side victory with two or more goals difference.
Benfica – Newcastle (-1)
