The Barça needs the three points after beginning his adventure in Europe losing in front of the Bayern of Munich. Not winning in Lisbon would suppose to complicate the pass to eighth of final and this is something that the culés can not allow. Thus, Ronald Koeman will go out with an eleven competitive and will not do rotations. Having this in account, this is the forecast of the onces that will take out both teams:

  • Benfica: Vlachodimos; Veríssimo, Otamendi, Vertoghen; Lázaro, Weigl, Joao Mario, Grimaldo; Yaremchuk, Rafa Silva and Darwin Núñez.
  • FC Barcelona: Ter Stegen; Mingueza, Hammered, Araujo, Sergiño Dest; Frenkie of Jong, Busquets, Gavi; Coutinho, Luuk of Jong, Memphis Depay

Ter Stegen

Marc-André ter Stegen​ will be under the sticks a party more to try avoid that the Barça follow receiving goals. The German, in spite of all what has happened him to the team in this start of course, is surrendering well and has not had errors of bulto. Against the lusos will have to show that it follows between the best of the world, the same that did in Cádiz the past week, where saved to his team with two interventions of a lot of merit.


After the good feelings that in front of the Raise, Koeman will repeat with almost total security with Sergiño Dest in the left lane and Óscar Mingueza in the right. The American went out to leg changed this weekend and will look for to keep on being decisive in front of the Portuguese. In the centre of the defence, everything aims that they will play Gerard Hammered and Ronald Araújo, that will return to the eleven after his suplencia of the past Sunday. The charrúa is to an extraordinary level and his team will need him in a so important appointment like the one of this Tuesday.

Busquets-Of Jong-Gavi

If it does not happen at all rare, the trainer barcelonista will bet by the centre of the field that played in front of the Cádiz in League the past week. Frenkie Of Jong will go back after losing the crash against the Raise by sanction to lead the midfield blaugrana. To the Dutch ask him a step at the front and could be the moment to give it. In spite of the recovery of Pedri, everything aims that at the side of the Dutch will be Gavi, that went out against the Raise and to the that Koeman could give continuity. After them, Sergio Busquets will be the brain of the Catalans to try 'disassemble' the defence of the Benfica.

Coutinho-Luuk Of Jong-Depay

In the forward, Luuk of Jong and Memphis Depay have a place ensured after his goals against the Raise. But the companion of the Dutch is not clear, since it fits the possibility that it go back to go out Philippe Coutinho, like the past Sunday, but also that it play Yusuf Demir by right to leave to Memphis in the left. Besides, it can not descartar that Koeman bet by Pedri and plant four centrocampostas and only two forwards, dispensing so much of Cou as of the Austrian. Ansu Fati, that reappeared with goal in front of the 'granotas', seems that it will go back to go out in the second part and will not risk having he of start.
