Champions League picks for PSV Eindhoven vs. Benfica

Before you tune in to Wednesday’s Champions League play-off, you need to see the UEFA Champions League 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, and he has his finger on the pulse of the game all over the globe.

For Benfica vs. PSV Eindhoven, Green is backing both teams to score at -143 odds. PSV is one of the most explosive offenses in Europe right now. In fact, the Dutch side has scored 17 goals in its last six fixtures, which includes a four-goal outburst against Ajax in the Johan Cruijff Shield final earlier this month. PSV scored 74 goals in 34 matches in the Eredivisie last season, securing a second-place finish behind Ajax.

Benfica, meanwhile, also features an explosive offensive attack. The Eagles have scored two goals in each of their last four fixtures and they’ll be pressing forward to secure the victory on their home turf. Benfica’s attack is spearheaded by forward Luca Waldschmidt, who found the back of the net in Benfica’s 2-0 victory over Arouca on Saturday. 

“PSV certainly has the quality to cause problems for Benfica’s defense,” Green told SportsLine. “Yet it may also struggle to deal with the wealth of attacking talent that the Portuguese team will field on Wednesday.”
