The Portuguese side and the Dutch club lock horns in a tie where anything can happen. Follow this clash with our detailed guide.

The first round of games in the UEFA Champions League KO stage will come to an end when Benfica and Ajax clash at Estadio Da Luz this Wednesday. Both teams have come this far in the competition by beating some tough opponents, which will end up making them even more dangerous to their rivals in this Round of 16 tie.

Benfica enter this stage after finishing as runners-up in Group E behind Bayern and one point over Barcelona. The Eagles have only lost twice during their run in the ongoing tournament, which goes back to the preliminary stages, with only Bayern being able to walk away from their stadium with a win.

Speaking of individual performances, Benfica will have to rely heavily on Darwin Núñez to try and make something happen against Ajax. The Uruguayan sensation has made a name for himself and has been identified as the team's main threat in front of goal, with three goals to his name. Joao Mario and Julian Weigl will also be key to the team's efforts, as they have handed three assists between them for Benfica in the tournament.

On the ther side of the pitch, Ajax will enter Estadio Da Luz defend their unbeaten run in the tournament that saw them claim the top spot in Group C, which marked the first time for a Dutch side to win all six group stage matches. Ajax scored ten away goals in their three group stage games, including a 5-1 win against Sporting Lisbon on Matchday 1. 

When it comes to individual performances, the Dutch side have seen Sebastién Haller as their main goalscoring threat, with the footballer finding the back of the net ten times in the competition. Other top-rated players to look out for will undoubtedly be Antony (two goals and four assists) and Dusan Tadic, who has played the full 90 minutes in his five appearances with the red and white side in the competition.

Here are the key elements we have to consider prior to the start of this interesting game.
