Benfica’s players are currently in London ahead of Thursday night’s clash with Tottenham at White Hart Lane and will be hopeful of maintaining Portugal’s fine recent record in the Europa League.
With just 16 teams left in the tournament, both sides are now among the leading contenders for the title, with success in the competition a major target for both sides.
For Spurs to claim success, though, they will need to defeat Jorge Jesus’ Benfica side and that, ideally, would mean a comfortable home victory to ensure next week’s journey to Portugal is not as fraught as it could be.
Benfica, though, have a number of players capable of hurting Tim Sherwood’s side. Who, then, should Tottenham be keeping an eye on over the course of Thursday’s game?
