BENFICA vs MANCHESTER UTD BETTING PREVIEW 

Benfica enter this match on the back of an unconvincing run of only one win in five matches and their manager Rui Vitoria was starting to come under pressure. In Champions League, they lost 2-1 at home to CSKA Moscow on match-day one and were incredibly thumped 5-0 away to Basel next time out. Of course, they must find a return to form if they are to stand any chance of reaching the knockout stages of this competition The Portuguese side have won only one of the their last six games in Europe (home and away) and overall are now on a three match losing streak. In the Portuguese Liga, the Eagles are currently in third position after 8 rounds of matches with a record of W5 2D 1L that leaves them 5 points adrift of league leaders Porto and 3 shy of second placed Sporting Lisbon.

Right-back Andre Almeida was sent off last time out, so he will be suspended here. The hosts are also expected to be without Jonas, Julio Cesar and Eliseu. As a result, Bruno Varela will start in goal while Alejandro Grimaldo and Pedro Pereira will be the starting full backs. Up front, veteran striker Jonas will be probably benched as well as Inter Milan loanee Gabriel Barbosa. The like of Raul Jimenez and Haris Seferovic is expected to spearhead the attack.

Manchester United have won their previous two Champions League outings this term as they beat Basel 3-0 at Old Trafford and then hammered CSKA Moscow 4-1. Their Super Cup defeat against Real Madrid this year is their only European defeat in their last 14 games (W10 D3). Domestically, Man UTD drew 0-0 with Liverpool at Anfield last Saturday and they remain unbeaten with 6 wins and 2 draws to sit 2 points off the pace being set by their city rivals Man City.

Josè Mourinho tends to rest Phil Jones and Antonio Valencia in the Champions League and that could continue here. Daley Blind and Victor Lindelof should replace them in defense. Eric Bailly, Marouane Fellaini and Michael Carrick - who all missed Saturday's clash with Liverpool - all not expected to recover in time. Marcus Rashford is expected to start in the offensive midfield trio at the expenses of Anthony Martial. Paul Pogba and Zlatan Ibrahimovic still remain sidelined and while Marcos Rojo is still working his way back to full fitness.
