Benfica vs Liverpool Match Preview:
Liverpool nowadays is one of the fiercest sides in the world. Jurgen Klopp made an average side with a rich history to a tough opponent throughout the last seven years of his coaching. They already have won a UCL and this term they have the chance to win the quadruple which hasn’t been won by any side in the history of football. English league cup is already won by them. They’re in the semifinal of the FA Cup, one point behind in the league standings. Klopp describes this team as his best side and the team will do everything in their power to remain the best.
Benfica is presently in the 3rd position in the Primeira Liga which is not a great outcome even though they’re the only Portuguese side remaining in the UCL. Their achievement isn’t just that as they had to come through a comparatively tougher condition. After the draw of the group round, if anyone would say that Benfica could reach the last 16, many would-bes leveled him as a maniac as Bayern and Barcelona were in the same group also.
However, they became 2nd and knocked Barcelona out of UCL. Their amazing performance continued in the knockout stage too. They drew against rejuvenating Ajax at their home and then unexpectedly won at the away leg and reached the last 8. It’s not luck throughout the way. They’re capable of playing against big European sides and winning also. They’ll try to maintain their superb form in the upcoming match too.
