BENFICA v PSG BETTING PREVIEWThe departure of managed Jorge Jesus means Benfica, who kicks off their summer with this game, find themselves in something of a transitional phase. New coach Rui Vitoria will take charge of the club for the first time. There has been plenty of speculation surrounding the future of Nicolas Gaitan this summer, but the Argentine remains at the club and has travelled with the squad.
The loss of former captain Maxi Pereira to Porto will sting and departures of Jorge Mendes’ clients Joao Cancelo, Andre Gomes and Rodrigo to Valencia all weaken the first team squad but one notable senior signing the club has made, meantime, is that of the ex-Tottenham and QPR forward, Adel Taarabt. Furthermore, they have added good youngsters such as Jhon Murillo, Diego Lopes and Ederson. Offensive Brazilian trio of Lima, Jonas and Talisca was impressive and will likely start the match.
This will be PSG's second friendly of the summer after overcoming SK Vienna 3-0 fielding an under-strength side in Austria. With Zlatan Ibrahimovic leading the line and linking up with the likes of Lucas Moura and Edinson Cavani, les Parisiens are expected to dominate the French league and cup competitions again this season.
Laurent Blanc can call upon the likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Blaise Matuidi and Marco Verratti after the trio missed the first friendly of the season. Jean-Kevin Augustin should be given another chance to impress up front while new singing KevinTrapp will play between the posts.
These two teams have met i 2013-14 season, when they were in the same UEFA Champions League group. PSG won comfortably in Paris, but Benfica edged Les Parisiens at their own turf.
