UEFA Champions League picks for Liverpool vs. Benfica
Before you tune in to Wednesday’s match, you need to see the Benfica vs. Liverpool picks from soccer insider Jon Eimer. He is a high-volume bettor who has vast knowledge of leagues and players across the globe. Since joining SportsLine, Eimer has covered the English Premier League, Serie A, the FA Cup and much more. The Indiana-based handicapper compiled a winning record of 260-133-1 with over 90 units of profit for his community on various platforms over a recent two-month stretch.
For Liverpool vs. Benfica, Eimer is backing under 3.5 goals at -125 odds. Nursing a two-goal advantage in the aggregate, Liverpool is in a similar situation as the Round of 16. After defeating Inter Milan 2-0 in the first leg, Liverpool then sat back and simply let the second game come to it rather than attacking in full force. The result was a game in which one goal was scored.
Benfica should also contribute to the under hitting since it ranks seventh in scoring out of the eight teams left standing in the 2022 Champions League bracket. It has averaged just 1.22 goals per match since the start of group play and had dismal offensive showings on the road. It’s scored just three goals across four away UCL matches and now faces a Liverpool team that will put all of its efforts into its defensive third. Even with that approach, Eimer sees Liverpool finding the net early before sitting back with a healthy aggregate lead.
“We could very possibly see here a quick two goals from the Liverpool side, who will come out in blistering fashion at Anfield in front of their own fans, just to build a cushion to rest up in the second half,” Eimer told SportsLine.
