Benfica and Ajax will face each other at the Estádio da Luz today, February 23 for the round of 16 of the 2021-2022 UEFA Champions League. Here you can check out the information about this game, such as the preview, storylines, predictions, odds and how to watch or live stream it free. You can watch it in the US on Paramount + (free trial). If you are in Canada, it will be broadcast on DAZN.

The Dutch are one of only three teams to go through the first round by winning all their games (the other two being Liverpool and Bayern Munich). Their good performance has generated good expectations and that is why they are the main favorites to win this UEFA Champions League Round of 16.

Benfica, on the other hand, are the least favorites to advance to the next round. However, there is one detail that should not be overlooked: this team was able to advance to the round of 16 after being in a very difficult group together with Bayern Munich, Barcelona and Dinamo Kiev. The Portuguese stayed in second place, relegating the "Culés", so they are a team that can cause a surprise, as they did by leaving Barcelona out.
