Champions League | Benfica vs Liverpool Live Stream and how to watch the match online and on TV, team news, kick off time

Darwin Nunez, the exuberant Benfica teenager, was the hero of the hour for his team against Ajax to carry them into the final eight of the Champions League in Amsterdam, with his list of European fans apparently expanding by the week.

Nunez headed home the sole goal of the second leg with 13 minutes remaining to upset the odds considerably, and the free-scoring Uruguayan could surely fetch a big figure from interested parties this summer.

Nunez scored from the penalty spot against Sporting Braga in Friday’s Primeira Liga match, but his penalty was insignificant as Benfica lost 3-2.

Inter Milan, the holders of the Scudetto, were the club to break Liverpool’s extraordinary resistance on Anfield grass, and they did so in style as Lautaro Martinez rifled in a magnificent long-range strike to make things interesting in the second leg.

However, Alexis Sanchez’s red card ended any Nerazzurri aspirations of a spectacular comeback, as Liverpool’s San Siro efforts put them through to the quarter-finals, and the noisy Kop’s quadruple dream is still alive.

The Reds were far from their best in Saturday’s Premier League match against Watford, but Diogo Jota’s header and Fabinho’s penalty put them over the line.

When is the Match between Liverpool and Arsenal? 

The match will take place at the Estadio do Sport Lisboa e Benfica on Tuesday, 5 April 2022.

Despite Klopp’s original assumption that Trent Alexander-hamstring Arnold’s injury would take “weeks” to heal, the right-back was on the bench against Watford and might be fit for his return at the Estadio da Luz.

Curtis Jones and Joel Matip are both likely to be declared fit despite minor ankle and head injuries, respectively, although Naby Keita’s knee ailment, which he picked up on international duty, is a bigger question mark.

On Saturday, Mohamed Salah had a difficult time against Hassane Kamara, and with Sadio Mane and Luis Diaz providing fresher alternatives off the bench, Klopp has a major dilemma in the final third this week.

Predicted Lineup (4-3-3): Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson; Henderson, Fabinho, Thiago; Jota, Mane, Diaz

Benfica

Kick Off Time

SL Benfica is going head to head with Liverpool starting on 5 Apr 2022 at 19:00 UTC at Estadio do Sport Lisboa e Benfica stadium, Lisbon city, Portugal.

In recent weeks, Benfica’s injury situation has been rather steady, and Verissimo was able to welcome Haris Seferovic back as a substitute in the defeat to Braga on Friday night.

Rodrigo Pinho, a fellow striker, is still out, as is Lucas Verissimo, whose season appears to be gone as he recovers from a damaged cruciate ligament. Adel Taarabt also missed the Braga loss due to an adductor problem and is questionable for the next match.

Nicolas Otamendi and Jan Vertonghen are preparing for their return to Anfield, and Nunez will almost certainly replace Goncalo Ramos in the starting XI.

Predicted Lineup (4-2-3-1): Vlachodimos; Gilberto, Otamendi, Vertonghen, Grimaldo; Silva, Mario, Weigl, Everton; Nunez, Yaremchuk
