BAR vs BEN Dream11 Prediction for Barcelona vs Benfica Champions League Live Score Daily Fantasy Football Team, Tips & Guide


BAR vs BEN Dream11: Barcelona welcome Benfica to Camp Nou in a crucial encounter in the champions league on Wednesday. The match will be new manager Xavi’s first European assignment. He has at the heart of Blaugrana’s numerous trophies as a player. They edged out a narrow 1-0 win over Espanyol at the weekend. After losing the two opening games without scoring a goal, Barcelona has put their UCL campaign back on track with back-to-back victories.

Meanwhile, Benfica have four points on board after four games, two behind their opponents. However, they will be favorites to progress along with Bayern Munich if they can get a result today. After a 4-0 drubbing at the hands of Bayern at home, they lost 5-2 away at the Allianz Stadium.
