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 do you need to know? 

The Liverpool juggernaut rolls into Lisbon with many predicting a fairly smooth ride to the last four for a side that had won seven out of seven before a narrow loss in the last 16 at home to Inter; their first-leg endeavours were enough. Benfica were also second favourites against Ajax in the first knockout stage, though, and that didn't end too badly thanks to the exciting Darwin Núñez. Whether they can soak up the same kind of pressure again is the question.

Possible Line-ups are as follows? 

Benfica: Vlachodimos; Gilberto, Otamendi, Vertonghen, Grimaldo; Weigl, Taarabt, João Mário; Darwin Núñez, Ramos, Rafa Silva

Liverpool: Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson; Fabinho, Henderson, Thiago Alcântara; Salah, Mané, Díaz

The match will be aired via Bein Sports channels.
