Inter carries a 2-0 lead from Lisbon and awaits Benfica at Giuseppe Meazza. 

Before Betting on Inter vs. Benfica

The 0-1 loss to Monza on Saturday night doesn’t bother the fans too much because they are focused solely on the Champions League. However, Simone Inzaghi needs to motivate its players in Serie A contests, otherwise, they might stay out of the UCL zone and next year’s spot.

Even though Inter has only won once in the last eight competitions, that victory came at the perfect time (talking about the game in Lisbon, 0-1). It could give them a chance to fight for the European finals.

The situation at Benfica is dire. And it couldn’t have happened at a worse time of the campaign, as the Eagles have now lost three in a row following eight straight triumphs. Before losing to Inter, there was a loss at home to Porto and afterward on the road to Chaves, conceding in the last minutes.

Benfica has been dominant on the road over the recent three months, posting eight wins and just two losses, each triumph coming with a clean sheet.

The hosts will try to waste time and kill the tempo, because the Italians usually do that in situations like this one. Benfica’s offensive potential is solid, but they won’t win in Milan, that’s for sure. We lean towards an inefficient contest here with two goals at most.
