- In the round of 16, Benfica twice came from behind to draw 2-2 at home against Ajax – who had won all six of their previous games in this season’s UEFA Champions League – before Darwin Núñez headed the only goal of the second leg in Amsterdam to seal progress.

- Benfica began their 2021-22 European campaign in the third qualifying round, where they won 2-0 both away and at home against Spartak Moskva. They then edged out PSV Eindhoven in the play-offs (2-1 on aggregate) in a repeat of the 1988 European Cup final they had lost on penalties to the Dutch club.

- The defeat at Bayern on Matchday 4 is one of only two Benfica losses in their last 11 European games outside Lisbon (three wins and five draws). The victory at Ajax ended a winless run of eight away matches in the UEFA Champions League proper (three draws and five losses), since a 3-2 victory at AEK Athens on Matchday 2 in 2018-19; the Eagles have not conceded in five of their six European games in a road in 2021-22 (two wins and three draws).

Liverpool's form guide

- The Reds are in the UEFA Champions League for the 14th time; this is the ninth season in which they have reached the quarterfinals.

- Liverpool enjoyed a faultless record in this season’s group stage having won 2-1 against Milan on Matchday 6 to conclude their perfect Group B campaign. Liverpool had opened with a 3-2 win at home to Milan before beating Porto (7-1 on aggregate) and Atlético de Madrid (5-2 on aggregate).

- The Merseyside club made it four away wins from four games with a 2-0 game victory at Inter in the round of 16 first leg, going through despite a 1-0 loss at Anfield.

- Liverpool were one of three teams who won all six group games this season, along with Ajax and Bayern, although they were only one of the three who made it seven successive victories in the round of 16 first leg before their run was ended by Inter. Milan, Paris Saint-Germain, Spartak Moskva, Barcelona, Real Madrid and Bayern have all previously recorded six wins from six in a UEFA Champions League group stage; only Bayern went on to lift the trophy.

- This season was Liverpool’s 14th UEFA Champions League group appearance; they have only failed to progress to the last 16 or further three times.

- This is Liverpool’s fifth successive campaign in the UEFA Champions League proper, all under Jürgen Klopp; runners-up to Real Madrid in the 2017-18 final, they claimed their sixth European Cup at the expense of Tottenham with a 2-0 victory in the 2018-19 final.

- Liverpool’s last two UEFA Champions League campaigns have ended in defeat against clubs from Madrid. Dethroned by Atlético in the 2019-20 round of 16 (0-1 away, 2-3 at home after extra time), they lost to Real Madrid in last season’s quarterfinals (1-3 on aggregate).

- Klopp’s side had finished first in Group D on 13 points, ahead of Atalanta, Ajax and Midtjylland, before beating Leipzig in 2-0 in both legs of their round of 16 tie with both games played in Budapest.

- Liverpool have won six of their last nine UEFA Champions League games in Anfield (one draw and two losses).

- This is Liverpool’s fourth game against Portuguese opponents this season. The English club won 5-1 at Porto on Matchday 2, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino scored twice and Sadio Mané once, before second-half goals from Thiago Alcántara and Salah secured a 2-0 Matchday 5 in Anfield.

- The 2-0 second-leg loss to Benfica in the 2005-06 UEFA Champions League round of 16 (0-3 aggregate) is Liverpool’s only defeat at home to Portuguese visitors.

- Liverpool have now won their last five games against Portuguese opponents, scoring 16 goals, and conceding three, and are unbeaten in eight matches (six wins and two draws) since a 1-0 loss at Braga in the 2010-11 UEFA Europa League round of 16 (0-1 aggregate).

- Liverpool’s record in two-legged ties against Portuguese clubs is seven wins and two losses. Their last knockout tie against Portuguese opponents was also their only meeting against a club from the country in the UEFA Champions League quarterfinals, a 6-1 aggregate win against Porto in the victorious 2018-19 campaign.

- Liverpool have been victorious on aggregate in all 35 of the UEFA competition ties in which they won the away first leg including against Inter in this season’s round of 16 – that was only the fifth time in those 35 ties they had lost the second home leg. The Reds have won 3-1 in the away first leg on four previous occasions in UEFA competition, most recently in the 2005-06 UEFA Champions League against Kaunas in the second qualifying round (2-0 home) and CSKA Sofia in the third (0-1 home) – the latter fixture the only one of those four second legs they failed to win and in which they conceded a goal.

Previous meetings

- The most recent of the sides’ ten meetings before this tie came in the 2009-10 UEFA Europa League quarterfinals, when Benfica came from behind to win 2-1 in the Lisbon first leg before Liverpool turned round the tie with a 4-1 victory at Anfield in which Fernando Torres scored twice. Óscar Cardozo was on target in both legs for the Portuguese side.

- Benfica ended Liverpool’s reign as UEFA Champions League holders in the 2005-06 round of 16. Luisão scored the only goal of the first leg in Lisbon six minutes from time before Simão Sabrosa and Fabrizio Miccoli secured a 2-0 win on Merseyside.

- The sides’ other three ties all came in the European Cup, and all in campaigns in which Liverpool went on to reach the final. In 1984-85 Ian Rush’s hat-trick in the second round first leg proved crucial as Liverpool won 3-1, progressing despite a 1-0 loss at Benfica; the Reds finished as runners-up to Juventus in that season’s competition.

- Ian Rush had also scored in both legs of the 1983-84 quarter-final between the clubs, the English side winning 1-0 at home and 4-1 away, Ronnie Whelan scoring twice in Portugal, and going on to beat Roma in the final.

- Holders Liverpool beat Benfica in the 1977-78 quarterfinals en route to retaining the trophy, a 2-1 away win preceding a 4-1 home victory. That was their first tie against Portuguese opponents.

Match background

- Liverpool is well placed to reach a third UEFA Champions League semi-final in five seasons as they welcome Benfica to Anfield holding a 3-1 first-leg advantage.

- The English club have now won eight of their nine games in this season’s competition while Benfica have recorded only three victories in their nine outings since the start of the group stage, although they earned a famous away win at Ajax in the round of 16.

- While Benfica are in the last eight for this first time in six seasons – and have gone no further since 1990, losing all four of their previous UEFA Champions League quarter-finals – Liverpool have reached this stage for the fourth time in five seasons, although their 2020-21 campaign ended at the same juncture.

- This is one of two quarterfinals between former European Cup winners, Chelsea’s tie against Real Madrid the other.

- The winners of this tie will play Villarreal in the semi-finals.
