Although Benfica outshot their Serie A counterparts 12-9 at home in the first leg, it was Inter Milan that walked away with a 2-0 win thanks to second-half goals from Nicolo Barella and Romelu Lukaku. Benfica will be looking to get out to an early lead at San Siro, though it will be a tall order to beat Inter at home where they’ve won 11 of their 16 matches in Serie A play this season. However, Benfica have been extremely good on the road in Primeira Liga play during this campaign, going 11-1-2 as they sit on top of the table.
Of course, playing on the road in Champions League is a much different story than a domestic league. Inter Milan will be looking to hold onto their lead by any means necessary and are the clear favorites heading into this contest, where they’ve only given up nine goals in Serie A all season.
While Benfica won’t roll over and give up, take Inter Milan to get the win at home. They only need a draw or a one-goal loss to advance, but expect Simone Inzaghi’s side to go for the win.
