Benfica host Juventus in this first leg of the Europa League semi final and we’ve got the latest live betting odds comparison alongside our top betting tips to give you all you need to make a nice profit from betting on this massive Europa League clash.

These sides are the two favourites for outright Europa League glory, with Juventus priced at odds of 11/10 and their Portuguese opponents at 4/1, with the all-Spanish second semi between Sevilla and Valencia considered to be the underdogs’ tie.

Whilst Juventus are strong favourites to progress to the final, the bookies can barely separate the teams in this first leg, with Benfica available at odds of 9/5 with Boylesports and Juventus very slight favourites at 7/4 with Betfred and others. The draw can be backed at longer odds of 23/10 with Paddy Power and that is the outcome we’ll be betting on.

Both sides are top of their domestic leagues and closing in on yet another title and so both will be confident but, whilst Benfica’s Estadio da Luz is an intimidating place to visit, the superior quality Juventus possess should see them do enough to get a draw. They won’t be too attacking in this first leg and we would probably fancy a bet on under 2.5 goals, with 1-1 or 0-0 each worth a small bet in the correct score odds.

Juventus have a 100% home record in Serie A so they will be more than happy with a draw, even if they fail to score an away goal, confident they should be strong enough to get the required victory on Italian soil.
