Liverpool will host Benfica at Anfield for the second leg of the 2021/22 UEFA Champions League quarter-finals, Thursday (14/04/2022) at 12:30 midnight Indian time.

Liverpool has stepped one foot into the semifinals of the Champions League this season. The reason is, in the last first leg match which took place at Benfica headquarters, the Reds were able to win with a score of 3-1.

Liverpool took the lead by 2 goals first through goals from Ibrahima Konate in the 17th minute and Sadio Mane in the 34th minute. Benfica had time to reduce the position through Darwin Nunez's goal in the 49th minute. However, Liverpool back away through Luis Diaz's goal in the 87th minute.

Liverpool itself is quite confident looking at this match. Last week, Liverpool was able to hold Manchester City to a 2-2 draw in the Premier League. The result extended Liverpool's unbeaten streak to 6 consecutive matches in all competitions (W5 D1 L0).

Meanwhile, Benfica has also prepared well ahead of this match. Benfica in their last match successfully won over Belenenses in the Portuguese League last week with a score of 3-1 through Darwin Nunez's hat-trick. The victory broke Benfica's bad record, which previously always lost in 2 consecutive matches.
