Galatasaray vs Benfica Predictions

Both of these teams have dropped down from the UEFA Champions League after disappointing campaigns, and now find themselves pitted together in the Europa League. Both sides are in good form domestically and are scoring plenty of goals. Galatasaray have netted 22 in their last six home matches and Benfica warmed up for this clash with a 10-0 win over Nacional at the weekend. Although domestic form doesn’t always transfer over to European competitions, we’re expecting both teams to score in this one, with Benfica getting the vital away goal they will crave.

The odds are quite generous at 10/11 but it would also be a wise selection for a BTTS prediction on this week’s Europa League action.


Galatasaray vs Benfica Anytime Goalscorer Prediction

Given that these two teams score so many goals, we’re spoilt for choice on the anytime goalscorer market. Galatasaray’s Henry Onyekuru is their current top scorer in the league with nine goals but the Everton loanee hasn’t scored in his last six matches and has been played out wide quite a lot. Benfica have been relying on Swiss striker Haris Seferovic for goals and he bagged another two at the weekend, taking his tally to 16 for the season. He’s going to be the selection here as we are predicting a few goals, with Benfica looking likely to score.

Galatasaray vs Benfica Correct Score Prediction

We’re round off today’s Galatasaray vs Benfica predictions with a bet on a correct score and going for a rather adventurous 2-2 draw here. With both teams in such good form, and Galatasaray renowned as one of the hardest places to go in Europe for away fans, Benfica will not find this easy. However, they will be eager to get an away goal and going back to Portugal with a 2-2 draw would be seen as a great result for them.
