Their present form has seen 2 draws, 1 loss and 2 wins from last five games. Last five home matches the Eagles have finished with 1 draw and 4 wins. Benfica have won 1-2 Maritimo this weekend. They have won 12 of their 13 home games in the Europa League. The 1-0 defeat to Fenerbahce finished their 38-game unbeaten run in all competitions. But, they are still undefeated in the Primeira Liga.

Fenerbahce goes 2nd in Turkish Super Lig table with 58 points from 31 games. They are still 7 points behind the leaders Galatasaray. The Turkish club got back to the winning ways with a 2-1 win over Kayserispor at the weekend. Their current form has seen 1 draw, 1 loss and 3 wins from last five games. Last five away matches Fenrebahce have finished with 2 wins, 2 draws and 1 defeat. Fenerbahce will be aiming to reach their first ever appearance in a final.


Benfica could count on Enzo Perez, who was suspended in the first game. Jorge Jesus has no injury worries. But, Ola John picked up a yellow card and will miss this game, so Nicolas Gaitan could play instead of him.
