GRANADA VS NAPOLI
The hosts have won here only once across their last five home competitive outings, and with only one home win at UEL Group Stage (DI, L 1), are far from being considered home favourites.
A strong start could help though, considering that Granada have opened the scoring in seven of their eight home competitive wins this term.
Napoli topped Group H (W3, D2, L1) and snapped their recent winless streak (D1, L2) after beating Juventus 1-0 last time out. Consequently, each of Napoli's last five competitive wins have seen them lead at HT, keeping a clean sheet in three of the last four such matches.
PREDICTION: NAPOLI TO WIN. CS 1-2
BENFICA VS ARSENAL
Avoiding defeat in this season's UEFA Europa League (UEL) group stage (W3, D3), Benfica have established themselves as this tournament's great entertainers, with every match producing over 2.5 goals.
Their current three-game unbeaten run (WI, D2) in the Primeira Liga (LPFP) acts as a further confidence booster.
UEL finalists as recently as 2019, Arsenal will approach this journey on the back of a 4-2 win vs Leeds United, after a three-game slump in domestic form (D1, L2).
PREDICTION: OVER 2.5 GOALS & DRAW. CS 2-2
