Bet Of The Day April 11 – read on below for our reasoning behind today’s best bet.

Key Points

  • Benfica are unbeaten at home in their Europa League history
  • Benfica have won 22 & drawn six of their 28 Europa League home games
  • Benfica have won 11 of their last 14 home games in all competitions
  • Marseille have won just four away games in all competitions this season
  • Marseille have lost six of their last eight away games
  • Marseille have lost their last three away games by two goals

We’re off to the Europa League for today’s best bet as Benfica look to make home ground advantage count when they host Marseille in the first leg of their quarter-final tie.

Benfica definitely have the upper hand heading into the first leg – they’ve never lost a Europa League home game in their history, winning 22 and drawing six of their 28 outings.

Unbeaten in 18 of their last 19 home games in all competitions, Benfica are incredibly hard to take out at home – they’ve also won 11 of their last 14 matches in front of their own fans.

By contrast, Marseille are notoriously poor travellers and have only won four games on the road in all competitions this season.

Marseille actually have the worst away record in Ligue 1 and have lost six of their last eight road outings in all competitions, including a 3-1 defeat to Villarreal in this competition.

Marseille have lost by two clear goals in their last three away games – they are clearly being outclassed at the moment.

Furthermore, there’s local reports coming out of Marseille that there’s discontent amongst the team when it comes to coach Jean-Louis Gasset’s training methods. Doesn’t sound like a team that’s ready to go on the road to Benfica and put in a top performance.
