Rangers hope to wrap this up after seeing a 3-1 lead go up in smoke in Portugal as these sides drew 3-3 in the first meeting. Rangers beat Aberdeen 4-0 on Sunday, registering their fourth clean sheet in five matches and their 20th unbeaten game. In their last 20 games, the Glasgow side has managed 17 wins and 16 clean sheets. They have scored a massive 15 goals in their previous three matches and will head here very confident.

On the other hand, Benfica ended their three-match winless run over the weekend, with a 1-0 win over lower-tier side Paredes.

While it hasn’t been fruitful in the previous few rounds, Benfica has four wins in five away matches and have scored three or more goals in their last four Europa League matches. Adel Taarabt plays in the middle of the field, which means a lot to the team, and his experience gives the team an advantage in many games. There are a lot of exciting players on the bench.
