Liverpool vs Benfica: TV channel, live stream, kick-off time, team news for TONIGHT'S Champions League encounter

LIVERPOOL will be eager to finish off what they started in their Champions League quarter-final second leg clash with Benfica TONIGHT.

A late Luis Diaz goal in Portugal enabled the Reds to bring a two goal cushioned lead back to Anfield.


But Jurgen Klopp's men will be disappointed that they weren't able to repeat that same trick against Manchester City on the weekend.

Meanwhile, the Eagles are well off the pace in Primeira Liga – trailing league leaders Porto by 15 points.

However, sought-after Darwin Nunez scored a hat-trick in their previous outing so Benfica will be hoping that he can continue his fine form.

  • Liverpool take on Benfica TONIGHT-Wednesday, April 13.
  • The match is scheduled to kick-off at 8pm UK time.
  • Anfield will be the venue for this fixture which holds approximately 53,000 spectators.
