Benfica warmed up for their Europa League second leg tie against Spurs with an emphatic win over fifth placed Nacional. The 4-2 victory extends the Eagles winning run to ten matches and it offers little hope for us ahead of Thursday night.
Rodrigo scored Benfica’s second goal on the day but a double strike came from an unlikely source – Argentine defender Ezequiel Garay. The Portuguese league leaders haven’t the most prolific strikers in Europe but goalscoring support comes from right across the pitch and last weekend’s game just helps to underline that point.
If you still have faith however, Spurs are on offer at 19/4 with Bet365 to win on the night and at a mighty 12/1 to progress to the next round.
