If the forces of Croats to keep the minimal advantage gained on the road? Most official bookmakers in doubt. But let's take a sober look at the statistics of both teams in recent matches, and only then will draw conclusions.
Vice-champion of Portugal in this season Primary shows quite a decent result. He leads the standings after twenty-five games with sixty points. But the same number of points available from the Port's main rival eagles in the fight for gold. Although there is one important point. Benfica won in Primeira nine of their last matches out of ten. And another one finished in a draw, which indicates good shape of the team.
In the last round LE the Portuguese coped with Galatasaray (1:2, 0:0). Now they desperately need to score, as poised not completely satisfied owners...
There is nothing surprising in the fact that Dinamo can already be regarded as the champion of Croatia. In the domestic championship are virtually no teams that can at the proper level to compete with him. But the whole strength of the wards Nenad Belitsa usually clearly demonstrated in the European Cup.
Yet Dynamo performs at LE tolerably well. First win the group, which was also Fenerbahce, Spartak Trnava and Anderlecht. And then the removal of Victoria in the one-sixteenth final. But whether the Croats to go to Benfica?
Usually the Portuguese feels confident in his field. But now they definitely need to win. And the Croats can catch the hosts on the counterattack. So the winner is not easy to predict. Our forecast is simple – total over 2.5.ng> since the team is unlikely to be one or two goals.
