Unfortunately for the home side, they head into this clash on the back of their 1-0 defeat in the Russian top-flight. However, that was Zenit’s only defeat in their last seven games in all competitions, winning five and drawing in their Champions League group-stage opening game against Lyon.

Benfica, on the other hand, are unbeaten in their last three games. However, their last defeat was their opening European game, a 2-1 loss RB Leipzig on Matchday 1. That’s one of only two defeats the Eagles have suffered this season in all competitions, the other coming against Porto in the Primeira Liga.

These two sides have met six times before. Strangely, the head-to-head record is tied, with both sides winning three each and scoring seven times each. However, the last time these two sides met was in the 2015/16 round of 16, with Benfica winning both home and away.
