Expert Champions League Analysis

A good deal of research goes into our football picks. We start by studying the latest form and getting a handle on injuries. The key stats can then be used as the missing piece of the jigsaw.

Key Benfica vs Red Bull Salzburg stats:

  • Benfica have scored 2 or more goals in 5 of their past 5 matches this season
  • Red Bull Salzburg have scored 2 or more goals in 7 of their past 7 matches this season

This Champions League game could see the hosts find the net. We’re also expecting their opponents to score and that means our tip is BTTS Yes at -133 on the Both Teams to Score market.

If you want to take a slightly different betting approach, why not consider the Over 2.5 Goals option where you need three or more to be scored.
