Team news & rosters

PositionBenfica roster
Goalkeepers Svilar, Leite, Vlachodimos
Defenders Gilberto, Grimaldo, Verissimo, Vertonghen, Otamendi, Almeida, Morato, T. Araujo
Midfielders Meite, Gonçalves, Mario, Lazaro, Radonjic, Rafa, Weigl, Dias, Taarabt, Bernardo, Brito


Everton, Nunez, Seferovic, Yaremchuk, Pinho, Ramos, H. Araujo

With three English, three Spanish and one German team - and that one being Bayern Munich - left in the hat, it is Benfica flying the underdog flag in the quarter-finals.

But it is no mistake that they have made it this far, and as one of the dark horses of this year's edition, they'll hope to spook their Premier League visitors when they come to town.

Predicted Benfica starting XI: Vlachodimos; Gilberto, Otamendi, Vertonghen, Grimaldo; Silva, Mario, Weigl, Everton; Nunez, Yaremchuk.

PositionLiverpool roster
Goalkeepers Alisson, Adrian, Kelleher, Marcelo
Defenders Van Dijk, Konate, Gomez, Tsimikas, Robertson, Matip, Beck, Alexander-Arnold, Quansah
Midfielders Fabinho, Thiago, Milner, Keita, Henderson, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Jones, Jota, Elliott, Morton, Bradley
Forwards Firmino, Mane, Salah, Minamino, Diaz, Origi, Gordon

Liverpool look to have hit their stride at the right moment when it comes to chasing silverware this term, and a second bite of Champions League glory under Jurgen Klopp surely sits top of the pile.

The Reds will be wary of a side that turned over Dutch heavyweights Ajax to get here though, and with a Premier League crunch clash against Manchester City looming, could hedge their bets to a point.

Predicted Liverpool starting XI: Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson; Henderson, Fabinho, Thiago; Jota, Mane, Diaz
