Liverpool, one of the favorites in the Champions League, travels to Benfica Lisbon on Tuesday for the first leg of the Champions League quarter-finals. Departure will be at 9 pm.
It is a duel between two previous winners of the competition. Admittedly, Benfica Lisbon’s second and last coronation dates back to 1962, 60 years ago, but Liverpool must be wary of their Portuguese opponent, who lost to Ajax Amsterdam in the previous round. The Lusitania club receives the first leg of the quarter-finals of the Champions League at La Luz stadium on Tuesday evening.

After the elimination of Inter Milan in the round of 16, despite the defeat in the eighth second leg (1-0), Liverpool wants to continue its European journey, on its way to Jurgen Klopp’s second Champions League title after 2019 with the Reds. They are in great shape anyway, having racked up four consecutive wins in all competitions in the recent rounds.
Coming back to a point behind Manchester City 30 days into the Premier League, Liverpool will advance as the favorites against Benfica. Nelson Verissimo’s team lost in the league on Friday to Braga and is third in the tournament. The Portuguese press has been speculating for several days about Verissimo’s successor, who has had a poor start to finish the season in one of the top two places, to qualify for the next Champions League. The feat against Liverpool would temper that record.
