Benfica will host Club Brugge in the second leg of their UEFA Champions League last-16 tie at Estadio da Luz on Tuesday night. The first leg in Belgium ended 2-0 in favour of Benfica, thanks to second-half efforts from Joao Mario and David Neres. Meanwhile both sides are heading into the match on the back of contrasting results in their respective league-outings in the weekend, with the hosts securing a 2-0 Portuguese Primeira Liga-win over Famalicao, while Brugge were thrashed 3-0 by KV Oostende in the Belgian Pro League. 

Benfica are just one step away from reaching the quarter-finals of the Champions League in back-to-back seasons for the first time in their 119-year history. Last season, the Eagles were dumped out of the last-eight stage of Europe’s elite club competition by Liverpool, after suffering a 6-4 aggregate defeat. Meanwhile, when it comes to the league campaign, Roger Schmidt’s side are comfortably sitting at the summit of the Portuguese top flight standings, having collected 62 points from 23 games, eight clear of the chasing pack. Last time out, The Reds defeated Famalicao on Saturday, courtesy of Goncalo Ramos’ brace.  

Club Brugge, on the other hand, didn’t have the best of preparations coming into the crucial European match, having suffered a humiliating 3-0 defeat away to Oostende in the league on Friday. It was the Blue-Black’s fourth league-defeat of the season, pushing Scott Parker’s side down to sixth position in the Belgian top flight standings. Following the defeat, Parker conceded that he was not sure if he would still be in the job for Tuesday’s away leg.
