Portuguese giants Benfica host Dutch Eredivisie runners up PSV Eindhoven at Estadio da Luz in the first leg of a Champions League qualification final.
Benfica have not lost a game of football since May. During this period, they’ve played eleven games, winning nine and drawing two. Prior to the defeat against Braga in May, they had been on another eight-game undefeated streak.
After Benfica play PSV on Wednesday night, they have a league match against Gil Vicente, which they’ll definitely be expecting to win, before they travel to Eindhoven to play the second leg of their Champions League qualification final.
PSV Eindhoven, on the other hand, haven’t lost a single game since March. They’ve played seventeen matches during this period, winning fourteen and drawing three. These wins included overcoming both Galatasaray and FC Midtjylland, scoring eleven goals and only conceding three.
Between the two games against Benfica in this Champions League qualification final, PSV will face Cambuur in the Eredivisie – a game they’ll be expecting to win to keep them in contention for Champions League qualification this season, too.
Head to head, matches between Benfica and PSV have been very close over the years, with a draw and a win for either side in their last three meetings, the most recent of which was a 3-1 home win for PSV all the way back in 2012. Only a draw would see both teams continue their unbeaten runs, however, this must come to an end when these sides meet again on the 24th of August.
