Benfica beat a tough Astana (the first Kazakh team to qualify for the UEFA Champions league final stages) in their opening UEFA tie in the group played in the Stadium of Light in Lisbon. Nicolas Gaitan and Konstantinos Mitroglou were the scorers and the goals arrived in the second half with Astana’s defence looking tough to break down.
Our verdict on Atletico Madrid v Benfica: We think Atletico will have too much fire power and with home advantage should find it relatively easy to unpick the Benfica defence.
