The second match of the 2014 Emirates Cup is between Benfica and Arsenal on August 02, 23:20 (GMT+8) in Emirates Stadium. Records show that Benfica have an edge against Arsenal considering their UEFA rankings, as well as the result of the two teams’ last match back in 2011 wherein Benfica defeated Arsenal (2-1). But football is unpredictable and 2011 was 3 years ago. Will Benfica smash Arsenal in its own home ground?
