Benfica didn’t appear concrete enough in the first leg, despite having more of the ball possession as they suffered narrow defeat from the penalty kick. The side made a setback in the title race with a 2:2 home draw against Belenenses being now leveled up in the title race together with Porto.
Dinamo was just fine in the first leg and threatening enough with the ball to their feet, which did look like a limited amount of time, but concrete enough to make the things as difficult as possible for the Portuguese now. They had a 3:1 victory over the weekend against Rijeka continuing to be red hot favorites for yet another domestic title.
Midfielder Fejsa (17/0) is injured, as well as forward Salvio (11/1) and striker Seferovic (21/15) for the hosts. The guests can’t count at suspended defender Leovac (9/1) and midfielder Sunjic (17/0). Injured is midfielder Ademi (11/1).
As I stated in the first leg, I still believe that the individual quality difference is with Benfica’s side. Now, with even fewer factors working for the visitors, I strongly believe that the Portuguese team will be able to overcome this obstacle within the ninety minutes.
