Benfica vs PSV Eindhoven : Prediction

The first thing that crosses our minds when discussing the possible pick for this derby is both teams scoring. As you saw, they often scored two goals per game, and the respective defenses are far weaker than the attacking lines. This contest could go either way despite Benfica being a solid favorite. It wouldn’t be too big of a surprise.
