Newcastle vs Benfica Preview:

Date: April 11, 2013; Time: 8:05 PM BST;

Venue: St. James’ Park — Newcastle-upon-Tyne.

The hosts will do their best to keep Europa League hopes alive. Alan Pardew’s team needs to overturn two goals deficit after the first-leg 3-1 defeat. The Portuguese team has great chances to progress to the semi-final stage.

Newcastle needs to score two and keep their goal clean, if they want to progress to the semi-finals of the Europa League. Newcastle scored first thanks to fast goal from Cisse. Then, Rodrigo equalised for Benfica. The second goal from Lima and a penalty from Cardozo made the final result.

Newcastle goes 13th in the EPL standings with 36 points from 31 games. The Magpies are just 5 points ahead of the relegation zone teams. Their present form has seen just 2 wins and 3 losses from last five games. Last five home matches the Magpies have finished with 1 draw and 4 straight wins. Newcastle have some pressure in the Premier League, but they have won last home game 1-0 against Fulham at the weekend. In the Europa League the Magpies have beaten Metalist Kharkiv and Anzhi Makhachkala in the previous rounds. Papiss Cisse and Shola Ameobi are Newcastle’s two top scorers in the Europa League with 3 goals each.

Benfica are at the top of the Portuguese Primeira Liga with 67 points from 25 games. The Eagles have a 4 point lead over Porto and are still unbeaten. Their present form has seen 8 straight wins from 8 games. Last five away matches the Eagles have finished with 1 loss and 4 straight wins. They are full of confidence after a weekend 0-2 win over Olhanense.  Benfica have beaten Bayern Leverkusen and Bordeaux to progress to this stage of the Europa League. Oscar Cardozo is Benfica’s best goalscorer with 28 goals, 6 of which he scored in Europe.


Newcastle head coach Alan Pardew has a long injury list with Hatem Ben Arfa, Mathier Debuchy, Davide Santon, Cheikh Tiote and Haris Vuckic all are going to miss this game. The good news are that long-term injured Ryan Taylor is closing to his return on Sunday. Fabricio Coloccini and Massadio Haidara will start from the bench after suffering injuries.

Benfica manager Jorge Jesus has a few injury worries with Eduardo Salvio remaining a doubt.
