SL Benfica vs Rosengard Match Analysis & Prediction
22/11/2023 11:00 pm
Benfica Women and Rosengard Women will both be looking to pick up their first points of the Women’s Champions League group stage when they meet in Portugal on Wednesday.
The hosts suffered defeat to Barcelona on matchday one, while Rosengard were edged out in their home game against Eintracht Frankfurt.
After easing through three qualifying ties, Benfica were drawn in a group with Barcelona and Rosengard for the second straight season, while they have also been joined by German side Eintracht Frankfurt.
Filipa Patao’s side began the group stage with a tough trip to Catalonia, where they suffered a heavy 5-0 defeat, following braces from Alexia Putellas and Aitana Bonmati as well as an Asisat Oshoala strike.
After suffering their first defeat of the season, Benfica quickly returned to winning ways with a 1-0 league victory over Braga through Kika Nazareth’s second-half goal.
Meanwhile, Rosengard are aware that this is set to be their last Champions League campaign until 2025-26 at the very least after they finished their league season in sixth position.
After finishing last season’s European campaign without a point, Rosengard were hoping to begin the current group stage with a positive result in their home encounter with Frankfurt.
However, goals from Tanja Pawollek and Barbara Dunst gave Frankfurt a two-goal cushion, and while Olivia Schough scored a late consolation, it proved to be too little too late.
With their domestic campaign over, Rosengard have had a week to reflect on their matchday one defeat and prepare for Wednesday’s trip to Portugal, and they will be looking to continue their impressive away from after winning four and drawing two of their last six competitive away matches.
