The Benfica vs. Fenerbahce match will be played on Tuesday, August 7, at the Da Luz Stadium, Lisbon. This is the UEFA Champions League third qualifying round first leg. Both times are starting their qualifying cycle from this round.


  • During the summer, Benfica played six friendly games. They won three, lost two, while one game ended in a draw. They lost their last two games, against Juventus and Lyon.
  • Fenerbahce played six friendly games during the summer as well. They recorded two victories, only one defeat, while three games ended in a draw. However, the best team that played against Fenerbahce in this period was Feyenoord, so we can't evaluate their current form.


These teams played two games against each other in the past. It was during Europa League 2012/13 season. Fenerbahce won the match played at home by 1:0, but Benfica celebrated a 3:1 victory in Portugal.


Benfica played on International Champions Cup during the summer, where they were up against some of the strongest European teams and recorded several solid performances. During the summer, they didn't lose many important players, while they bought several players, mostly from South America. Among them, attacker Facundo Ferreira who arrived from Shakthar Donetsk is the man who should make the biggest impact in the team.

Fenerbahce played several friendly matches against weaker opponents, so it is really hard to tell how good they are at the moment. Benfica is probably the toughest opponent they could have in this part of the season and that might cost the place in the next round. During the summer, they had one big arrival - Andre Ayew transferred from Swansea.

Benfica is a favorite to win the upcoming game. We expect to see more than 2.5 goals.
