Europa League Preview: Benfica vs Fenerbahce

Benfica hope to overturn a one-goal deficit at their home ground, after losing 1-0 in Turkey. This is hardly a tough task, taking into account Benfica’s impressive home form this season.

Benfica team news:

Benfica boss Jorge Jesus has not serious injuries to worry about as all key players are fit and healthy to face Turkish giants.

Enzo Perez is likely to feature in the first XI after serving his one-match suspension during the first leg in Turkey.

Ola John is suspended due to yellow cards’ accumulation.

Fenerbahce team news:

Topal and Webo are suspended, while Raul Meireles has suffered an injury at the training session that ended his season.

Fenerbahce boss Aykut Kocaman is expected to include the 19-year-old Salih Ucan to replace Meireles, with Baroni will be used as a defensive midfielder.
