It will be a mighty challenge for Benfica to avoid a loss on the upcoming trip to Paris. Schmidt’s men gave a spirited fight to PSG in the last game, and they managed to avoid a defeat.

Enzo Fernandez has the right role in the team, he moves great in the middle of the field, and it isn’t easy to take the ball away from this guy. In an otherwise available group of players, there is only the lone fitness problem for the Benfica manager Roger Schmidt to contend with.
