BENFICA V LIVERPOOL MATCH PREVIEW
One thing is for sure every game from now until the end of the season is massive for Liverpool and all of them with the feeling of must win games about them, well maybe we would take a draw away to Benfica. The games are coming thick and fast with not much respite in the coming weeks so it will be tough.
We go to Portugal on the back of a great performance last Sunday and it will give the team great confidence going into such a big game. I think it will be a very tough game with Benfica highlighting their capabilities earlier in the competition in convincing fashion in the way in which they dispatched of Everton, so Liverpool will have to be wary. Benfica are a side very dangerous going forward and play a very quick passing game which Liverpool will have to close down or be taken apart. So i think Rafa will resort back to being ultra defensive again tomorrow night due to his concern of the threat Benfica pose.
So i reckon Rafa will go to this team selectino for tomorrow night
Left midfield- Babel
Right midfield- Kuyt
Centre midfield- Lucas
Centre midfield- Mascherano
Centre midfield (attacking)- Gerrard
Centre forward- Torres
I think this will be Rafa's defensive team selection, just not sure if he'll play Babel or bring back Benayoun, but i'm pretty sure about the rest of the team.
BENFICA 1-1 LIVERPOOL I would take this as a result away from home and finish them off back at Anfield.
KEY PLAYER- Mascherano - I think he will have to be at his best to protect the defence and break up the Benfica passing game.
