Benfica vs Inter H2H Stats

  • There has only ever been one other match between these two clubs in the champions league and that was in the 1964/65 campaign.
  • The result of the final was a 1-0 win to Inter.
  • Benfica has won the Champions League twice already while their rivals in the quarter-final, Inter, have won it three times. 
  • Inter’s most recent UCL title was in 2009/10 while Benfica’s latest was in 1961/62. 

BTTS Market 

Benfica has been the first to score in 10 of it’s last 10 matches, however, Inter has had trouble scoring goals in it’s last few games. The Italian club has been consistently underperforming and I don’t think they’ll stand a chance against the Portuguese giants who have gained momentum over them. 

BTTS Verdict: No 

Over/Under Market 

Of Benfica’s last five matches, it has seen over 2.5 goals scored in 4/5. Inter on the other hand has seen less than 2.5 goals in 5/5 matches. Not to mention, Inter is also winless five games in a row and without a clean sheet four games in a row. Such desperate figures show that the club is really struggling and Benfica will have the edge over them. 

Over/Under Verdict: Under 2.5 

Overall Verdict: Benfica to win
