I only know 4 of them from that list, is Samaria a top player for them? 

I know he’s not in a lot of folks teams but I reckon Davis has to start with Kamara in the middle for me 

According to his player data he's only had two appearences, no goals and no assists.

outstanding efforts from everyone in that half.  i am in awe of what Gerrard has managed to get out of such a small budget. you'd think this was Football Manager 2020 we were playing with these r

It’s great being a Bear right now. 

We have seen better Rangers teams lose to much worse than Benfica over the decades. This season has been almost faultless so far and to keep the momentum and unbeaten run going for this long is almost

Just seen he is not on the list but is one of their defensive midfielders

Is that for this season cos on Wiki he signed from Olympiakos in 2014

checked some of the other players out  - 3 of them alone are about 60 million worth of buys if I’ve read things right

It’ll be our hardest game this season, 11 vs 11 we’ll do well to get a point. That said, I’m looking forward to this with huge confidence and I wouldn’t be surprised if we pull off another incredible win. I’m trying to keep myself from getting too excited though. 

If we apply ourselves right I honestly think they can be took. Would be a massive win

As usual we’re playing Benfica kids, just like Porto, Braga, Feyenoord, Vienna, Willem II, even St Josephs probably had a few players out. 
 

Meanwhile the tarriers scared Milan 1-2 and beat Bayern Munich 1-2 as well. 
 

Media is basically the celtic view

Whatever team Benfica put out, it'll be a much stronger 11 than the part-time electricians from Sparta Prague's B-team who hammered them 4-1.

Glad to hear Gerrard's comments saying we are going all out for a win, so we've got a couple of weeks rest (indicating that he will play squad players against Falkirk and give a chunk of the first team a bit of a rest) and we can go into these couple of weeks on a high. That's the type of thing I like and the way I see it.

Was interesting to read his comments about Patterson and Falkirk, said he would definitely have played against Falkirk, I thought Tav and probably Goldson would have been the only two starters from arguably our best 11.

Need to weather the early storm we always seem to get at home to Portuguese clubs and take it from there. Wouldn't be to unhappy with a draw but like you say we are more than capable of the the win.

They are undoubtedly a quality side and have spent 10's of millions on their squad but I reckon they are the team who will do well to get a point from us.

I fully appreciate that if they are on top form and we are "off it" even by a small margin then they have more than enough quality to punish us.

Thing is I just don't see that happening, we have been immense all season, we just get better and better and we have more gears to go up imho.

Still in November granted and we haven't achieved a thing yet but the way we are playing this season is phenomenal. 

This could be a season like no other if we continue to stay clear of covid/injuries and suspensions.

Bring them all on.

Been a bit part player for a few years now but at one time he was really highly rated. Got his move after Olympiacos had a great season that year and knocked Benfica out the Champions League.

If we qualify, will the last 32 be in january/feb? 

If so we are goin to have a hard run january/feb. With them out of Europe and solely being allowed to concentrate on the league.

1-0 Gers tomoro then get the rest in which could be pivotal when approaching xmas/new year

I watched them because I had them on a bet. They were jammy to win 90+5.

The way we have been playing, we would have beat them based on that performance.

Anyway, other than about ten or so teams, I don't think the jump from Europa to Champions league is that big.

They would cuff us about the place.

They beat Inter in last years final. Inter knocked out Leverkusen who schooled us on football at the pointy end of a European competition. Think out that side they have only lost 2 players over the summer.
