Defenders Felipe Morato and Lucas Verissimio remain absent for Benfica, but boss Roger Schmidt otherwise has a full squad to choose from.

Kick off and chain
Kick-off is at 8pm BST on tuesday october 11 and the game is broadcast live on BTSport 5 (opens in a new tab) in Great Britain. See below for international streaming options.
If you’re out of the country for a round of Champions League matches, unfortunately your domestic on-demand services won’t work – the broadcaster knows where you are thanks to your IP address (boo!). You won’t be able to watch it, which isn’t ideal if you’ve paid for a subscription and still want to follow the action without resorting to the illegal streams you’ve found on Reddit.
But help is at hand. To get around this, all you need to do is get a virtual private network (VPN), assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and the internet, which means the service can’t determine where you are and won’t automatically block the service you paid for. All information in between is fully encrypted – and that’s a result.
