Futaa risky tip of the day: Galatasaray vs Benfica promises goals
Galatasaray sits 2nd in the Turkish Super Lig after five wins out of six, but their visitors Benfica aren't in shabby form either after dispatching Nacional 10-0 in Portugal's Primeira Liga on the weekend.
This match almost guarantees goals.
What are our bets on betPawa?
Galatasaray has had to up their game to stay in the hunt for the Turkish title, with big-spenders Istanbul Basaksehir six points above them in the race. This might well help them in their European endeavours, ensuring that complacency doesn't become a problem. Visitors Benfica should pose a stern challenge, a team that is also second in their domestic league and in a title battle with rivals Porto. Benfica's has won their last three matches in domestic competition and those matches have produced 22 total goals.
They are certainly an entertaining side and we can see this being an open affair.
Galatasaray's experienced Brazilian fullback Mariano is out but aside from that, the Turkish side has a fully-fit squad. For Benfica, Nigerian defender Tyrone Ebuehi is unlikely to be fit. Aside from injuries, this might be another chance to catch a glimpse of Benfica's wonder kid Joao Felix, the 17-year-old winger being tracked by a host of Europe's elite clubs. He's definitely one to watch.
- Galatasaray has failed to win any of their last six in the Europa League.
- However, confidence at home for Gala is high with five wins in a row in all competitions.
- Away side Benfica is undefeated in their last nine matches in the Europa League.
- Benfica has won four away games in a row.
With both sides well capable of getting on the score sheet and no strangers to the European stage, we are backing both teams to score priced at 1.79.
