Our prediction for this Champions League match:
Manchester United will be looking to cement top position in Group A with a win over Benfica at their Old Trafford. The Red Devils have been impressive in the Champions League group stages to date and they aim to keep their 100% record intact. Jose Mourinho’s men recorded a hard-fought 1-0 win over Benfica in Lisbon and they are considered hot favourites to pick up all three points from Tuesday’s football match. The Eagles, on the other hand, are eager to put an end to their three-game losing run in Group A, but beating Manchester United at the “Theatre of Dreams” is easier said than done. The Red Devils are a real force to be reckoned with at home and we predict that they are going to book their place in the knockout stages of the elite competition with yet another win over the Portuguese outfit.
