Benfica are playing some of the best football in Europe this season. This will be very difficult for Liverpool, if they can come through this then they have to be favourites for the title, imho.

Kuyt, Lucas and Babel start for Liverpool. Pacheco and Plessis on the bench. No Saviola for Benfica but Aimar and Di Maria start ok.

Guess I'm not the only one suffering a little letdown after 2 emotional CL games.

Would like to see Fulham win this, but it looks like number of matches have taken it out of their legs.

As long as Benfica don't win by more than two goals tonight, and Liverpool score, Rafa's men will progress to the semi finals.

My prediction for tonight.. Liverpool to lose 1-0 or 2-0..

All "United fans" on here to really try and wind up the liverpool fans, only for liverpool to go through next week.

Wolfsburg have just started to find their form again, which is ominious for Fulham, however, Fulham have knocked out two strong sides already, and I see no reason why they can't defeat the German Champions as well.

BIG NEWS - Benitez has been given $35 mil for transfers in the summer.

He has started negotiations with 12 full backs, a defensive midfielder and 2 players to stand behind Reina for extra safety..........

Not much difference in quality of these teams and matches.

We have Valencia-Athletico on TV here. Should be a good match.

Against Sunderland, Liverpool looked like the team they were last year again. I would think many liverpool fans are excited to watch tonight and see if it was a turning point?

could be a good game. 4-1 a few weeks ago in the league and the ref gave nothing to Atletico until he really had to to stop calls of bias.

Angel di Maria might be highly rated, but nothing gets past Ramires and Luisao, both quality players in their own right.

Unless Torres plays a blinder, its 3-1 to Benfica. They were excellent against an arguably better Everton team. What are the odds?

Pool will capitulate, they can't string more than one or two results together.

And goot shout on Di Maria, class.

1914: Liverpool, I think it's fair to say, couldn't have picked a harder quarter-final opponent. Not that they picked it themselves. That would be ridiculous. Benfica, as I said, are unbeaten in 25. They're the Europa League's top scorers with 21 goals. They have 40m-rated Argentine wizard Angel di Maria in their ranks. Ooh, and they thrashed Everton 7-0 over their two games in the group stage.

---------------------------

That's a game you want to make a 'statement of will'. 1-2 to Liverpool with Torres and Gerrard scoring for Liverpool.

Also a 1-0 to Fulham would be nice.

I think tonight is going to be a great advert for the Europa League. Some top teams competing here.

Caroline, I think it's pretty clear what happened last night - we were treated to an exceptional game between two sides who believe in passing and creativity. Obviously, Barca were even better at it than Arsenal, but Arsenal showed that they can do it a bit too when allied with the destructive pace of Walcott - it was a gourgeous pass inside the full-back for Theo's first goal.

I just wish we were treated to more games between teams with this philosophy.

those left in this competition have achieved a great deal to get this far given the number of games that have to be played and I think this is shown by the quality of the teams.
athletic , valencia , benifica and of course our own liverpool could and have competed in the top tiers of the champions league before and many on the player lists tonight will be watched closely for the next big league signings , should a a good night for football!

I hope the Benfica that hammered us (Everton) turn up tonight, not only because i want Liverpool out, but because it's pretty degrading losing so comprehensively over two games. I'm hoping its because Benfica are just THAT good!! Cardozo the danger man in this one...

This tournement is really undervalued by some fans. It's often more exciting than CL.

Bootiful indeed - no doubt Fulham have been Anchor spreadable in the tournament so far, but it will be a Barry Crocker of a result if they get through this round.

Liverpool finding themselves in all sorts of bananarama in the league playing Barry White for large parts of the season, no doubt a lot of fans will be down the biscuit & cookie putting some bugs bunny on Liverpool going through.

Will be on the Car & Scooter checking the progress
