Liverpool’s chase for the Champions League crown continues against Benfica

Benfica at Liverpool

Estadio da Luz – Lisbon, Portugal
3:00 PM ET
Liverpool -240

Liverpool is playing extremely well. They’ve won four-straight games, outscoring their opponents 7-0 in the process. All told, they’ve been on the winning side in 11 of their last 12 matches.

Contrast that with Benfica, who is 2-1-1 in their last four matches, including a 3-2 loss to Braga the last time they were on the pitch. They’ve surrendered five goals during that stretch, which doesn’t bode well in tonight’s UEFA Champions League match.

Liverpool is a heavy favorite in this quarterfinals match for a reason. They have a legitimate chance to win the whole thing, while Benfica is a long shot.

Mohamed Salah powers Liverpool’s attack. The forward has eight goals in eight matches. Roberto Firmino is equally as dangerous, netting three goals in four matches.

Liverpool will take care of business in this quarterfinal showdown. They’re the smart money tonight.

Jorge Pare’s pick: Liverpool M/L (-240)
