The correlation of forces before the match PSV vs Benfica
Information from football betting today said that in the second leg against Benfica in the C1 Cup, captain Roger Schmidt of PSV side will make a few changes in the starting lineup compared to PSV’s last match. Specifically, pillars such as Noni Madueke, Ibrahim Sangare, Mario Gotze, Andre Ramalho and Phillip Max can all return to the main kick after sitting out in the match against Cambuur in the Dutch league.
Thus, experts in the Champions League all believe that PSV will arrange an attack exactly like the first leg against Benfica. It is the trio of Madueke, Gotze and Gakpo who will play behind the sole striker, Eran Zahavi. It is an effective attack formula, when in the first leg, Zahavi opened fire at the end of the game, helping Benfica get an important goal away from home.
On the Benfica side, strategist Jorge Jesus will also make some personnel and tactical adjustments to ensure the result is a 2-1 victory over PSV in the first leg. According to tonight’s bookie, it also means that Pizzi, Joao Mario, Alex Grimaldo, Weigl and Rafa Silva will return to Benfica’s starting line-up, after sitting on the bench against Gil Vicente in the league weekend. via.

In particular, the three central defenders of Benfica will be entrusted to Nicolas Otamendi, Lucas and Morato. And Jan Vertonghen will sit out due to injury.
The news from 7m livescore said that striker Haris Seferovic of the Portuguese team was also unable to play in this match due to injury. This will be a great loss, possibly even deciding the success or failure of Benfica in the trip to France. Because Haris Seferovic was Benfica’s number one goalscorer last season, with 26 goals for this team in all competitions.
