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.

Is Banega still there? 

Class player imo.

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

I watched them tonight.(I took them on a bet) I wasn't impressed mate.

Going by the heatmap Krasnodar just spent most of the night trying to contain Sevilla.

Sevilla are a team that gets results, they knocked out Roma, Man Utd, Wolves and Inter to win the Europa league last season. Their style is very similar to ours in Europe in terms of counter attacking, set pieces and an aggressive press, so they are better suited against teams who will have a go. I doubt there's a better team in Europe at that style of football to be honest.

I mean, if a neutral watched us against Livi, Kilmarnock away or even Ros County at home.. they would think we weren't up to much either.

Sun reporting Jack is out for this game, will be a miss if true. 

Disappointing  Zungu injured as well but with all these games, international , European,domestic  and now with cup games kicking in as well  it's no a surprise  Jack is struggling a bit.

Just hope they are no out for too long as this will put pressure on Davis and Arfield in particular.

I'm only going by what I watched last night, not previous years. Pretty sure no one else watched the game last night.

We need the full squad this season, Davis got a rest during the last international, hopefully bides him in good stead for this game.

Just seen Tarabaat’s on their injury list of 6 - pleased with that he’s a good creative player. Him and their star striker being out is brilliant news 

what about that Otamendi that got sent off a couple weeks ago, is he out this game or does it kick in the next game? 

Don’t think Taraabt is a big loss for them tbh. He looked unfit and slow against us.

They recently gave him a decent contract extension though. Players like him, can look unfit and slow but create something from nothing. That's massive if that's missing.

See Jack's out injured. Jack excels in these European games but my preference is still Davis and Kamara.

It’s as much about what we do as anything else

Yes they’re a quality side but we started the game playing scared a bit last time, if we go out and play with the confidence on the ball that we should then we can be more than a match for them 

Their recent results have been poor as well, beaten at home by Braga after we played them and trounced by Boavista before. 

It’s Benfica not Bayern Munich and we’re capable of beating them 

Agree with all of this mate.......... fancy us to sneak a 2-1 win.

I watched bits & pieces of Champions league tonight. We are better than teams like Sevilia, Rennes, Krasnodar & Kyiv.

There are harder teams in the Europa than some Champions League teams - Benfica, Bayer , Leicester, Villarreal, Spurs... and us!
