Benfica will host on Tuesday Liverpool in the first leg of the UEFA Champions League with both teams looking for booking a ticket in the semi-final.

The match will kick off at 22:00 CLT.

What is the team news?

Striker Rodrigo Pinho and defender Lucas Verissimo will both miss the game for Benfica - while Adel Taarabt is a doubt after missing the clash against Braga. But former Premier League players Nicolas Otamendi and Jan Vertonghen are expected to start.

Trent Alexander-Arnold is expected to return for Klopp’s side after missing the win over Watford on Saturday. Curtis Jones and Joe Matip are set to be available, but Naby Keita remains a doubt. The rest of the Liverpool squad are all fit and ready for the game.
