Barcelona have won their last two games in Group E of the UEFA Champions League while Benfica have lost their last two matches in the league.

Barcelona are currently in second place with six points from four games while Benfica are in third place with four points.

Barcelona are determined to make up for their 3-0 defeat to Benfica in Lisbon in September. Darwin Núñez scored twice while Rafa Silva added another.

Barcelona beat Dinamo Kiev 1-0 in their last game in the Champions League through a goal by Ansu Fati. Xavi Hernandez's side followed that triumph with a 3-3 draw over Celta Vigo and a 1-0 win over Spain in La Liga.

Memphis Depay has scored in their last two games so he is expected to lead the Catalans in this game.

Fati, Nico González, Pedri and Sergino Dest will not be able to play here due to injuries.

Benfica suffered a 5-2 defeat to Bayern Munich in their last game in the league.

Jorge Jesus' side bounced back in the Portuguese Primeira Liga where they recorded comfortable wins against Sporting Braga (6-1) and Pacos Ferreira (4-1).

Among those who will not feature for Benfica in this game are Valentino Lazaro, Andre Almeida, Joao Mario and Lucas Verissimo.

Verdict

We expect Barcelona to avenge their earlier defeat to Benfica.
