Benfica vs Bayern Munich prediction on October 20, 2021. SL Benfica is playing at home in the next round of the UEFA Champions League 2021/22 group stage. Their goal will be the points to be able to consolidate the 2nd place. However, it is almost impossible when SL Benfica had to host Bayern Munich.
SL Benfica received an extremely confusing defeat in the last match in Liga Portugal that took place just before FIFA day. This loss caused SL Benfica to be led by FC Porto and Sporting CP. It can even be seen that they are having a hard time when last weekend could not beat an opponent in many ranks like Trofense in the cup arena during the official competition period. SL Benfica’s attack is considered to play very well this season. That has brought many victories for them, but the defense is still receiving goals fairly evenly through each match.
Bayern Munich Overview
In the last week of competition before the national team focus period, Bayern Munich also had to receive their first defeat in the Bundesliga. As well as in this year’s season against Eintracht Frankfurt at home.
However, unlike SL Benfica, last weekend Bayern Munich came back extremely strong. They have defeated the 2nd ranked team Bayer 04 Leverkusen with a score of 5-1 right at this opponent’s Bay Arena. Bayern Munich’s attack also achieved extremely explosive performance. But keeping a clean sheet is always a difficult problem for the Gray Tiger.
Asian Bet – Benfica vs Bayern Munich Prediction
Bayern Munich’s form is too terrible with 10 wins in the last 11 matches, last weekend they beat Leverkusen 5-1 at home. The only 1-2 defeat against Frankfurt took place in the context of having to play 3 consecutive matches a week, without too much impact.
Although Benfica is having a dream start, the quality of the squad is admittedly very limited. Even in the domestic tournament, Jorge Jesus’ team has just lost their first match at home. The element of surprise was lost, having to compete with a superior opponent was too much for the Portuguese representative. Convincing victory for Bayern Munich is a wise choice.

European odds show that the house highly appreciates Bayern Munich’s chances of winning. There is no doubt about the outstanding class and stability of Nagelsmann’s men. Benfica no longer has the element of surprise, it is difficult to keep even 1 point.

Over/Under Bet – Benfica vs Bayern Munich Prediction
Bayern Munich just beat Leverkusen 5-1 to monopolize the top of the Bundesliga. The unexpected loss to Frankfurt did not affect Nagelsmann’s men too much. Because they won 10 victories in the last 11 matches with terrible performance. The defense brings peace of mind when only conceding exactly 8 times and keeping a clean sheet in 5/10 matches.
However, with a tight schedule, it is likely that Bayern will let the pillars rest, in the context that they are leading Group E in an absolute way. The overload can be clearly seen in the last match against Frankfurt, the Gray Tiger had difficulty in the last situations. It will still be Nagelsmann’s controlling play, but the ability to explode goals at Da Luz is not appreciated.
