Liverpool vs Benfica Live Stream: Liverpool will lock horns with the red half of the Portuguese capital Benfica for the second time in the hope they can book their place in the Champions League semi-finals.
The Reds got the better of their Liga NOS opponents in the first leg by winning 3-1. Goals came from Ibrahima Konate, Sadio Mane and Luis Diaz who gave the Premier League side the advantage – with Darwin Nunez keeping the tie alive for the visitors.

Prediction: Liverpool 1-0 Benfica
Klopp told the media yesterday that his team are angry. but in a good way. We think we will see exactly that from his squad.
While we don’t predict Liverpool will score a mass of goals, a professional performance will take place that should see Liverpool into the semi-finals.
Benfica will be up for the fight but have had a sticky domestic campaign, and elements of that will be on show at Anfield.
