Benfica set to test struggling Club BruggeFull screenRarely in a Champions League Round of 16 clash do Benfica start as firm favourites. Despite the departure of Enzo Fernández, who moved to Chelsea for 130 million euro in the winter transfer window, the Lisbon giants remain in control in the Portuguese league, leading FC Porto by five points. Players such as Grimaldo, João Mario and Antonio Silva are delivering dazzling displays and Spanish winger Grimaldo is having possibly the best season of his career and is the second highest provider of assists in the Portuguese top flight.
40) – 13. 50%. Club Brugge – Benfica Preview – Recent Form, Team News, Probable LineupsThis is an interesting Champions League matchup and we expect to see an exciting duel. So, let's take a closer look at both teams ahead of it and our predicted Club Brugge vs Benfica lineups. Club BruggeAlthough they were complete outsiders in Group B of the Champions League, Club Brugge is certainly the biggest surprise of the season as they managed to finish second in the group behind Porto to secure a spot in the knockout stages.
João Mario has become a lethal striker this season and has scored 16 goals and nine assists, while 19-year-old Antonio Silva has established himself as the leader at the heart of the Benfica defense and looks like he will be in line for a future million-dollar transfer following the steps of other Estadio Da Luz greats (João Felix, Darwin Nuñez, Enzo Fernández... ). Full screenAlexander Bah of SL Benfica celebrates DeFodi ImagesGettyBack in his native homeland, Wolves loanee Guedes, has adapted immediately and the Lisbon giants are also boosted by the return of Rafa Silva and Gonçalo Ramos, with both players having recovered in time for the first leg against Club Brugge after three weeks absent due to injury. Both have received the medical green light and make the travelling squad but only played a few minutes last weekend and everything seems to indicate that they will watch the start of the game from the bench.
So, whatever happens next, the Belgian team can already consider their season in Europe as successful. After all, they are only the second Belgian club in history to reach the knockout stage of Champions League and if they manage to get to the quarter-finals, they will become the only Belgian team to go that far. Of course, their first step is getting past Benfica first, which will be very tough given how Benfica played in Champions League this season. The team suffered a few changes during the winter transfer window, with Eduard Sobol going to Strasbourg and Ibe Hautekiet going to Standard Liege, among a few other departures.
So, even though Benfica averaged 3. 83 goals per game so far, with Brugge hosting the game, we can see it going under 2. 5 total goals. Place the bet >>Benfica to WinClub Brugge is without any doubt the biggest surprise this season in Champions League. After all, this is a team that finished ahead of Atletico Madrid and Leverkusen in group stages to reach the Round of 16. However, Benfica finished first in their group ahead of giants like PSG and Juventus. They are also a much better team on paper, so we can see them winning this game to get the advantage ahead of the second leg in Lisbon, even though they lost one of their key players this transfer window with Enzo Fernandez moving to Chelsea.

On the other hand, Jack Handry is back from his loan and Josef Bursik arrived from Stoke. Club Brugge Predicted Lineup:Mignolet – Nusa, Mechele, Boyata, Meijer – Nielsen, Odoi, Vanaken – Lang, Sowah, JutglaBenficaThe team from Lisbon has been in great form in the first half of the season, including both Champions League and the Portuguese league where they were in first place. Benfica ended the group stages in Champions League in the first place, ahead of PSG and Juventus and without a loss, so they could be a dark horse in this edition of the European's elite competition. Benfica obviously had a favourable draw for this stage too, given that Club Brugge is among the teams with the lowest reputation of all remaining in the competition. So, their fans are rightfully hoping that Benfica can make it to the next stage and, if they can repeat their performances from group stages, perhaps go even further.
Tonight’s home side Club Brugge is far from being the team that stunned Atlético in the group stage having only only won one of their last five games in the Belgian league with new manager Scott Parker still struggling to change the dynamics of the team. The former Bournemouth coach has had his work hampered with the loss of Skov Olsen (nine goals and four assists) who is still out with a hip injury and Ferran Jutglá is still not 100% fit from a pelvic injury. The former Barcelona striker has scored ten goals this season, but hasn’t found the net in 2023.
