La Liga

Major reasons why Barcelona may lose

A 3-0 win over Levante at the weekend was a boost for Ronald Koeman, but it’s only staved off the mounting pressure. The Catalans are struggling and Benfica are a side who can cause them problems this week.

The hosts are top of Liga Nos after seven games and things are looking good for them so far. Jorge Jesus has got them firing, they’ve scored 13 times in their last five matches. They’ve hit 25 goals across the previous 12 games, enough to worry a Barca side who aren’t up to scratch.

Benfica have scored in nine of their last 10 home games in the Champions League. Barca have conceded in five of their last seven matches, but they’re looking strong going forward so both teams to score is my prediction.

Benfica have lost their opening home Champions League match in each of their last three campaigns. With Barca winning 30 of their last 41 at this stage, a 2-1 away win is my correct score prediction.
