Benfica will feel confident that they can reach the last eight stage of the 2022-23 Champions League. The best football betting sites have them as strong favourites to come through against a Club Brugge team who produced plenty of shocks in the group stage and the Belgian side certainly won’t be daunted by returning to Portugal.

After all, Carl Hoefkens’ side went to the Estadio do Dragao on 13 September 2022 and claimed an amazing 4-0 win which put Porto completely on the back foot before the latter were able to recover and string together four consecutive victories to finish up topping the section.

Perhaps Club Brugge flattered to deceive during the group stage and they are the big outsiders to continue their excellent progress in the competition. They have the advantage of playing at home in the second leg, although they have not been performing to high levels domestically and currently sit fourth after winning ten, drawing two and losing four of their sixteen games played.

Benfica didn’t just finish above Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League group stage but they are also proving to be very strong domestically. At the time of writing, Roger Schmidt’s side haven’t lost a game in any competition all season and perhaps that explains why they were able to hold PSG to two 1-1 draws.
