Both sides are on fantastic runs of form, unbeaten in their last 6 games. Benfica did though drop points in their domestic league at the weekend, drawing 0-0 with Vitoria. This ended a 13-match winning streak in all competitions. PSG got a significant 2-1 win over Nice in Ligue 1, keeping them top of the table. During these runs, both teams won their first two matches in this season’s Champions League. Benfica got an impressive 1-2 away victory over Juventus last time out, while PSG beat Maccabi Haifa 1-3 in Israel. 

This will be the seventh meeting between Benfica and PSG, although they have not played each other since the 2013/14 season. The Portuguese team have claimed 3 wins in those previous games, compared to the French side’s 2 victories. They have also drawn on 1 occasion. Furthermore, Benfica have actually won the last 5 times they have taken on opponents from France. Those stats, and the backing of a passionate home crowd, should give them hope that they can upset one of the favourites to win the whole competition.

PSG’s Italian midfielder Marco Verrati missed out on representing his country during the international break due to a muscle injury, but it looks like he will have sufficiently recovered to play some part in this Champions League clash. Benfica will still be without Joao Victor, Lucas Verissimo and Morato, meaning some key players remain absent from their defence.

Despite that win good win in Italy, this latest task for The Eagles is a lot more intimidating. Can they possibly stop Kylian Mpappe, Lionel Messi, Neymar et al?
