Champions League groups or Europa League groups? We will definitely find in the next 10 days with 12 teams playing for 6 UCL group spots while the losing teams will earn a Europa league group stage position. Let’s preview Wednesday’s games and share our 2-team parlay pick for the day.
Benfica vs. PSV Prediction
The 2 teams enter this 1st leg clash full of confidence after a superb start in their domestic seasons. It will be a shame to see only 1 of the 2 clubs in the Champions League group stages but the losing team will surely enjoy a deep season in Europa League.
Benfica were clinical in the previous round, beating Spartak Moscow 4-0 on aggregate, offering no chance to their opponents. They also enjoyed an amazing pre-season being unbeaten 7 friendly games and they also kicked-off Liga Portugal in style, winning maximum points in 2 fixtures (2-1 against Moreirense and 2-0 against Arouca). Their German striker Gian-Luca Waldschmidt scored in both domestic games and is expected to feature in the starting XI after missing both legs against Spartak Moscow.
On the other side, PSV have not lost any of their last 17 matches across all competitions. As always, they are fighting Ajax for the title in Eredivisie and started their domestic league on the foot with a convincing 2-0 victory on the road against Heracles. They earned their UCL playoffs spot by knocking out both Galatasaray and Midtjylland, winning all 4 legs and netting 11 goals in the process. They are an ultra-attacking team, and they are going all-in in every single match they are playing.
Former Dortmund player, Mario Gotze joined PSV last season and after returning from a long-time injury he seems to be one of their most important players. It’s very important to note that both teams tried to rest their most important players last weekend in their domestic league still their games.
There’s really very little to separate these two sides so we will avoid the winners-market and focus on the goals-market. You can also go for over 2.5 goals priced at -118 with Bet365 but for this parlay bet we are going with ‘both teams to score’.

Young Boys vs. Ferencvarosi
Young Boys, what a beautiful team… They are not a team with super stars, but they packed with some excellent players. They have been impressive in Europe so far, beating Slovan Bratislava and CFR Cluj comfortably in the second and third qualifying round. They have regained their goalscoring form of late with 7 goals netted in their last two competitive fixtures.
Their US striker Jordan Siebatcheu is the player to watch. With superb dribbling skills, great shot from outside the box but also brilliant on aerial ball, Siebatcheu can solve a game on his own. Young Boys’ aggressivity and high-pressing plan is not let letting the opponent develop a proper attack. Yes, they also have defensive struggles but from a neutral fan perspective Young Boys are a great team to watch and enjoy their positive playing style.
On the other side, on paper Ferencvaros are going though an inconsistent run. Yes, they pulled off a great upset, knocking out Slavia Prague, a team with more experience at this level, beating them 2-0 on their turf but losing the away game 1-0 in the Czech Republic.
Last season Young Boys performed well in the Europa League group stages qualifying in the last 16 and being knocked out by Ajax. This term they want to make it to the big league and play against the best teams in Europe. Ferencvaros might represent a thread when they play at home in Hungary, but Young Boys should have enough to win in front of their home crowd.
For a single bet you can play Young Boys to win and over 2.5 goals in the match, priced at +130. For this parlay bet we are going with Young Boys’ straight win.
