Total over 3

Benfica is dominating the Primeira Liga, top of the table. In the entire season, the team lost only once, it happened in the 14th round with Braga (0: 3). The loss to the chasing Porto is 8 points and the case of the championship is very likely closed.

In their league, in terms of the expected number of goals scored (xg = 2.26) and conceded (xga = 0.56) per match, the Eagles are the undisputed leader.

In the first leg, Benfica beat their opponent decisively with a score of 2-0, and during the match they looked confident and undefeated.

Club Brugge, even in its championship, is not able to fight for the highest places. In the last 13 matches, they won only 2 times, and in the last meeting they lost crushingly to the outsider – Ostend (0: 3). After 28 rounds, the team is ranked 4th in the table.

In terms of expected goals scored (xg = 1.63) per game, the black and blue are in the top three, but they often make mistakes in defense (xga = 1.22), which is closer to the average league level in terms of effectiveness.

In the playoffs, Brugge is a rather casual entrant. The team was lucky that Atlético and Bayer Leverkusen lost in the group stage.

Under these circumstances, Club Brugge needs to recover and open up. Probably a better match.
