MATCH PREVIEW

Liverpool | WWWWWD 📈

Liverpool prepare for this game following a 2-2 Premier League drawn game versus Manchester City.
In that game, Liverpool had 45% possession and 6 attempts at goal with 4 on target. For Liverpool, goals were scored by Diogo Jota (13') and Sadio Mané (46'). On the other side, Manchester City had 11 shots on goal with 5 of them on target. Kevin De Bruyne (5') and Gabriel Jesus (37') scored for Manchester City.
Their most recent results highlight the fact that much respect should be given to the Liverpool backline. Liverpool have been mean at the back, with the number of goals that have gone past their goalkeeper over the course of their previous six outings standing at 3. That kind of pattern isn’t assured to follow through into this match, however.

Benfica | DWWLLW

In that game, Benfica managed 63% possession and 27 shots at goal with 8 on target. The only player to score for Benfica was Darwin Núñez (22', 54', 58'). Belenenses had 8 shots on goal with 2 on target. Afonso Sousa (2') was the scorer for Belenenses.
Looking at their form, and Benfica have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 games, conceding 9 goals in total. In defence, Benfica could really do with shoring things up.
