Head to Head


Benfica have met Rangers three times with each encounter ending in a draw.

Benfica first met Rangers in the 2020/21 Europa League group stage, a 3-3 draw in Lisbon followed by a 2-2 draw in Glasgow.

The first leg ended in a 2-2 draw in Lisbon last week. 

Rangers Form


Rangers recently produced a ten-match winning run with 29 goals scored and just four conceded.

Philippe Clement’s side saw the run come to an end in a 2-1 defeat against Motherwell despite having 70% possession and 31-15 shots.

Gers drew 2-2 at Benfica in the Europa League, taking the lead twice in Lisbon through Tom Lawrence and Dujon Sterling. They conceded a penalty and own goal in Portugal.

Rangers returned to Scotland with a 2-0 win at Hibernian in the FA Cup. John Lundstram struck after James Tavernier’s penalty was saved, Fábio Silva scoring after Hibs had been reduced to nine men.

Rangers Injuries & Team News


Midfielder Kieran Dowell is injured alongside winger Abdallah Sima.

Attacking midfielder Todd Cantwell is out with forwards Danilo and Óscar Cortés on the treatment table.

Benfica Form


Benfica recently went undefeated in 22 matches, continually strong at home but struggling on the road.

Roger Schmidt’s side lost 2-1 at Sporting CP in the Portuguese Cup semi-final first leg. They then suffered a humiliating 5-0 defeat at Porto, 2-0 down when Nicolás Otamendi was sent off.

The Eagles feel behind twice against Rangers in the Europa League, Ángel Di María and an own goal earning a 2-2 draw.

Benfica beat Estoril 3-1 on Sunday with Orkun Kokcu opening the scoring, Marcos Leonardo and Tiago Gouveia netting either side of half-time to get it done.

Benfica Injuries & Team News


Left-back Juan Bernat remains out injured with Alexander Bah joining him on the treatment table.

Schmidt made changes against Estoril with Marcos Leonardo likely to keep his spot up front.

Verdict

Rangers took the lead twice in Lisbon and will fancy their chances at Ibrox. Benfica have lost their last two games, my money on the Scottish club in the Europa League.
