Benfica vs. Chelsea: 5 Players to Watch in the Champions League Quarterfinal

On Tuesday, Chelsea face Benfica in the first leg of their Champions League quarterfinal.

The Blues will be aiming to bounce back from their recent league setbacks against Manchester City and Tottenham. The Portuguese side will also want to come back from their weekend draw at Olhanense. 

Both Chelsea and Benfica lost the first leg of their Champions League Round of 16 clash before coming back in the reverse fixture. But while Benfica had a relatively simple 2-0 win against Zenit St. Petersburg, Chelsea had to work very hard as they won 4-1 against Napoli in a 5-4 aggregate score.

I don't know what to expect from the first leg of this quarterfinal but it will certainly be a great encounter as both teams will attack and try to get the advantage.

Without further ado, here is my list of five players to watch in the Benfica-Chelsea match.
