First time in our clubs history we have reached semi finals of League FA and CL cups in the same season. Some stat. Could do with another trophy though. BOSH!
With a 3-1 lead going into this game there should be enough quality and intensity to finish off the job and come away with a place in the Semi Final of the Champions League. Anything else is a failure. It will a small miracle for Benfica to score 3 goals unanswered (or technically 2 and pens) but still I feel if we score first the tie is pretty much over.
An interesting team selection dilemma to face for Klopp knowing the game Saturday is just as important. We may see TAA rested after coming off a recent injury and perhaps Konate to jump in again. Our midfield looked off the pace on the weekend regardless of the opposition. We could see players like Ox Harvey and even Jones start in one or two of the positions. Whatever it is they’ll give it their all.
A late clincher from Diaz in the last game proved he’s a menace against Benfica so watch out for a start for him.
Hoping for a convincing win. COME ON YOU BOYS!!!
