These two met in the 1988 European Cup final when PSV beat Benfica on penalties but it is the Portuguese club who are in the driving seat at present.

Benfica bid to defend a 2-1 first-leg lead at the Philips Stadion on Tuesday.

First-half goals from Rafa Silva and Julian Weigl gave them a solid foundation but PSV looked far more dangerous after the break and Cody Gakpo pulled one back.

Benfica won 2-0 in Moscow, dispatching Spartak 4-0 on aggregate in the third qualifying round and are 11/4 to win in Eindhoven.

The hosts, who beat Midtjylland 4-0 on aggregate in the third qualifying round having seen off Galatasaray in the second, are Evens to win the second leg.

The Portuguese side have won eight and drawn one of their competitive games so far this season and are 4/5 to either win or draw the game in the Double Chance market.

The draw is on offer at 13/5 in the Champions League betting tips.

Verdict

PSV have been impressive on home soil so we are backing the Dutch giants to bounce back in the second leg.
