Squad Comparison

Benfica

While such a result – which extended Benfica’s unbeaten run to seven matches in all tournaments – can be viewed positively given Taarabt’s early sending off, ending their six-match streak of scoring at least two per game was an unwelcome statistic for the Portuguese giants, who have not made it past the last 16 of the Champions League since 2015-16.

Not since a 3-0 Taca de Portugal defeat to Porto back in December have Benfica failed to find the back of the net in a competitive fixture, but only one of their last 14 away Champions League matches – excluding qualifying – has ended in victory, and Ajax can be pretty unforgiving on their own turf. Furthermore, the 2-2 draw in the first leg stretched Benfica’s winless run against Ajax to seven games since their inaugural 3-1 success in 1969, with Ten Hag overseeing a 1-0 home win against the Portuguese giants in October 2018

Benfica Playing XI

Vlachodimos; Lazaro, Otamendi, Vertonghen, Grimaldo; Silva, Weigl, Taarabt, Everton; Ramos, Nunez

Ajax

The Champions League hangover appeared to hit Ajax hard as they followed up that 2-2 draw with a shock loss to Go Ahead Eagles, but they have since won three on the bounce across the Eredivisie and KNVB-Beker – scoring eight goals in the process.

The last time that Ajax managed to make it out of the group stages in the Champions League saw them produce that dazzling run to the semi-finals in 2018-19, and home comforts should certainly serve them well in their bid to repeat or better that feat this time around. Indeed, Ten Hag’s side head into the second leg having won each of their last seven at home in all competitions – conceding just twice and scoring at least three goals in every game – while Benfica’s compatriots Sporting Lisbon know first-hand about the Dutch giants’ penchant for prolific performances on home turf.

Ajax Playing XI

Onana; Mazraoui, Timber, Martinez, Blind; Klaassen, Gravenberch; Antony, Berghuis, Tadic; Haller

Match Prediction for Benfica vs Ajax

Ajax needs no lessons in putting the ball in the back of the net at home – whether that be against domestic or continental counterparts – and Ten Hag’s side can pick Benfica off as the Portuguese side go in search of goals themselves. While Darwin Nunez is always a threat in and around the box, we cannot back Benfica with any real confidence even with the fit-again Yaremchuk named in the squad, and Ajax will enter this battle as the firm favorites to book their quarter-final tickets.

While the odds of a clean sheet against Benfica are low, Ajax is the overwhelming favorite at home. With qualification to the next round of the competition at stake, the game is expected to be a closely contested affair. Nonetheless, the hosts should be able to come out on top given their solid home form and goalscoring prowess this season.

Benfica 1-3 Ajax, as predicted by us.
