  • Lucas Verissimo and Rodrigo Pinho remain sidelined for the Portuguese side.
  • Adel Taarabt was a doubt for Benfica’s 3-2 defeat at Braga and having played no part, he will need assessing here.

  • Joel Matip played the second half of Liverpool’s 2-0 win over Watford with a headband after sustaining a nasty bump to his head, though having played the full 90 he should be OK to start on Tuesday.

  • Fabinho, Luis Diaz and Sadio Mane may all return to the starting XI here.
  • Curtis Jones and Naby Keita were concerns for Jurgen Klopp, but the Reds boss has confirmed he has no injury issues.
