Benfica: Team information, moment form
Benfica trembles seriously during this period and is about to miss all the goals. The Eagles gave way to the championship with FC Porto and Sporting Braga and thus energized the title fight in the Primera Liga. Last stage, they managed to regain their leadership arm after the success of Gil Vicente, but even so the emotions remain there. The boys in Lisbon have only one point ahead of their death rival, and any wrong steps from now on matter. In the Europa League things are not going well for Benfica, the Portuguese losing in the round with a score of 2-1. Now, they need a solid evolution in front of their supporters, on Da Luz.
Shakhtar Donetsk: Team information, moment form
Shakhtar Donetsk was in the competitive break until February 20, but this was not felt at all. Although supporters feared the lack of rhythm of major parties, the Donetsk band performed much better than Benfica. Alan Patrick and Kovalenko scored after the break for Shakhtar Donetsk, and the team is now leaving with the first chance to qualify in the best Europa League. The good morale of the players could be seen 3 days later, when Sahtior won with a score of 1-0 in the championship, against Desna. The Premier League is not too big a concern for the guests, who have a 14-point lead over Dynamo Kiev.
Benfica vs Shakhtar Donetsk Picks
With the title largely resolved after the last victory, Shakhtar Donetsk can concentrate his strength on the Europa League. The team has a good chance of getting into the best and I expect to take advantage. On the other side, Benfica is a band built to attack, especially in front of their supporters.
Our Prediction: Over 2.5 goals
