Benfica vs Liverpool live stream: How to watch the Champions League quarter-finals online

The Benfica vs Liverpool live stream should be another step towards a possible trophy quartet for Liverpool this season, but the Portuguese side will not be left out.

Liverpool already have the Carabao Cup in the bag and are just one point behind Man City in the Premier League, with the two meeting at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday. They also face City in the FA Cup semi-finals the following weekend, so these next two weeks could see them close to quadruple glory, or hit the ground running with a thump.

The Champions League is surely Jürgen Klopp’s priority, however, and Benfica’s game should be a simpler test than the two games against Man City. With that in mind, Klopp may have been tempted to rest some of his key players in this quarter-final first leg – but ultimately he decided against it.

Sadio Mane and Luis Diaz both return after coming on as substitutes at the weekend, and Mo Salah is alongside them up front. Trent Alexander-Arnold and Ibrahima Konate also return, as do Naby Keita and Fabinho.

Benfica, meanwhile, have Adel Taarabt back for the draw, but Rodrigo Pinho and Lucas Verissimo are both out. The Portuguese side have reinstated young striker Darwin Nunez in the starting lineup after scoring the winning goal in the previous round against Ajax, while newly in form Haris Seferovic is on the bench.

Here’s how they line up:

Benfica: Vlachodimos, Gilberto, Grimaldo, Vertonghen, Everton, Darwin, Rafa, Weigl, Otamendi, Taarabt, Gonçalo Ramos

Liverpool: Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Konate, Van Dijk, Robertson, Fabinho, Thiago, Keita, Salah, Mane, Diaz.
