Bayern to Continue Dominant Start at Benfica

There are several matches to look forward to in the Champions League on Wednesday the 20th of October including the meeting between Benfica and Bayern Munich. The game will be played at the Estádio da Luz with the hosts second in Group E on 4 points and the visitors top on 6 points.

Benfica come into the game having recorded a 2-1 win at Trofense in the Taca da Portugal on the weekend. Benfica required extra-time to get the job done but they did not select their strongest XI for the match.

That result means Benfica have won 4 of their last 5 games in all competitions and have tasted defeat just once in their 14 competitive matches this season.

They started their Champions League group campaign with a 0-0 draw at Dynamo Kiev and built on that point in style as they defeated Barcelona 3-0 at home last time out. Having opened the scoring after only 3 minutes, Benfica added two goals in the space of 10 minutes in the second half to seal a memorable win.

Trends show Benfica are undefeated in each of their last 6 Champions League matches, all of which have come this season. They have won their last 5 home games in the Champions League and have scored 2 or more goals in each of those 5 fixtures, which is a good record.

Bayern Munich make the trip to Portugal having produced a tremendous performance in a 5-1 thrashing of Bayer Leverkusen away from home in the Bundesliga on the weekend. The game was supposed to be a good test for Bayern Munich but they totally dominated proceedings from the first whistle and scored 5 goals without reply in the first half, including 4 goals in the space of 7 minutes.

It was a good return to winning ways for Bayern Munich following their shock 2-1 loss at home against Eintracht Frankfurt in the Bundesliga before the international break.

Bayern Munich have started their Champions league campaign in style and began with a convincing 3-0 win in Barcelona. That was followed by a thumping 5-0 home victory over Dynamo Kiev at the Allianz Arena and Bayern Munich are one of the favourites to win the competition this season.

Trends show Bayern Munich have a good record of 11 undefeated games in their last 12 encounters in the Champions League and have a long unbeaten run away from home.

Team news and Benfica should have everyone available for this game, especially as many of the regular first choice XI were rested on the weekend.

Bayern Munich are expected to be without left-back Alphonso Davies who picked up a hip injury in the game on the weekend. He is the only first choice player unavailable for the visitors.

Benfica have made a good start to the Champions league group stage this season but this will be their toughest test to date.

There is not doubt the hosts can score goals but stopping Bayern Munich is going to be difficult and we expect to see the Bundesliga club take maximum points with both teams scoring.
