UEFA Champions League picks for Barcelona vs. Benfica

Before you tune in to Wednesday’s match, you need to see the Benfica vs. Barcelona picks from European soccer insider Martin Green. After working in the sports betting industry for several years, Green became a professional sports writer and handicapper and has covered the game worldwide. Since then, his European soccer picks have been spot-on. Green has generated over $36,000 for $100 bettors since the 2017-18 season. He’s also been red-hot on his Champions League picks since joining SportsLine. In fact, Green is on a blistering 86-53-5 run on his UCL best bets. Anyone who has followed him is way up.

For Benfica vs. Barcelona, Green is picking Benfica draw no bet (-110). This means that he’s picking Benfica to win, but the bet is void should the match end in a draw. After the spending spree Benfica went on two seasons ago, the club should have enough options in attack, but it’s the defensive back line that is in question.

Barcelona doesn’t have the same threat on offense as it has had in years past. Barca may be more preoccupied with trying to keep up with Benfica in possession, and the Portuguese club may not have to worry about its unsteady defense.

“Benfica sold Pedrinho in the summer, but it brought in Ukrainian star Roman Yaremchuk to further bolster its attack, and it has made a flying start to the new season,” Green told SportsLine. “Yaremchuk scored twice in a 3-1 win against Vitória at the weekend, and Benfica’s attack looks impressive right now.”
