    Play: 4% – Both Teams to Score
    Play Rating: 4%
    Result: Win

    Greek side PAOK will host Benfica on Tuesday, in a one-off match that will take place in PAOK's home turf. Benfica are coming off a miserable season, as they were awful after the restart and somehow managed to lose both the title and the cup. But they made a change in coach, bringing back Jorge Jesus, and they also reinforced their roster with some quality players. Benfica won all five warm-up friendlies while scoring at least twice in each match. 

    PAOK have pulled quite a few upsets against huge European sides over the years, but all those matches were on the road. Their home grounds will be empty of spectators, and one would think that this would take away some of their home advantage. However, playing European matches at home sometimes makes the players anxious about the result, and the absence of fans could actually work out well for PAOK in this instance. 

    PAOK usually score in big matches at home but they just can't keep clean sheets. The same match-up took place two years ago, where Benfica won here by 4-1 after a 1-1 in Portugal. Picking a side is extremely difficult here, as it can really go either way. Taking both teams to score, as suggested by the recent results from both teams. 

    Here are some PROP BETS that I find really attractive for this match:


    Over 0.5 Red Card (+325)

    Over 0.5 Penalty Kick (+175)

    Tzolis to Score Anytime (+260)

    Pelkas to be carded (+250)

    PAOK to receive 2+ cards in the first half (+205)

    Half-Time/Full-Time result: PAOK/Benfica (+2335)
