Currently, Benfica holds a two-point lead over Sporting F.C. in Primeira Liga. This team from Portugal is flying high on confidence as they are on a streak of eight straight victories.

Against Bayern the team has a pretty dreadful record as they have been knocked out of the competition by the Bavarians in each of their previous encounters. With statistics of conceding 4.3goals a game at Allianz Arena, the Rui Vitoria led team will surely look to change the course of history.

A well-oiled attack up-front and the high pressing game against the Bavarians who currently are devoid of their preferred defensive line-up, the Benfica team does stand a chance at Allianz Arena this time around.

With 32 goals and 13 assists, all season Jonas will be the key man for Benfica, and will be expected to shoot at all cylinders in this key quarter-final clash.

Expected Line-up: Ederson Moraes, Nilsson Lindelof, Eliseu, Jardel, Andreas Samaris , Lubomir Fejsa, Nicolas Gaitan, Pizzi, Renato Sanches, Kostas Mitroglou, Jonas. Subs- Raul Jimenez, Paulo Lopes, Mehdi Carcela Gonzalez, Nelsinho, Eduardo Salvio, Anderson Talisca, Andre Almeida.

Since drawing against Juventus in the first leg of Round of 16 in Champions League, the German Champions have won all their fixtures. They are most likely to win another Bundesliga this season as they happen to lead second place Borussia Dortmund by 5 points.

As Pep Guardiola is bidding adieu to the club at the end of the season, the tactician would most likely aim for European success as a fitting farewell. With injuries to the key back four, the team has been playing with second choice centre-backs, with David Alaba showing his prowess as a utility player and forming the heart of the Bavarian defense.

Even with the defensive conundrums, the team has gelled well to put up victories consecutively as the attacking unit is working as a well-oiled machine. With the return of senior players like Ribery and Robben, and the summer signings performing well at the top level- the bench strength of Bayern is as intimidating as it can get, with players who can change the game with their grit, determination and technique at any given point.

The key player for Barbarians will be Lewandowski, who is enjoying top form at the moment and has racked up 36goals all season. With 28goals and 10assists Thomas Muller is also a player to watch out for, as his youthful exuberance and his way to pop-up in great positions for scoring goals has been an essential source for turning matches in Bayern’s favor.

Expected Line-up: Manuel Neuer, Philipp Lahm, Joshua Kimmich, David Alaba, Juan Bernat, Xabi Alonso, Franck Ribery, Thomas Muller, Thiago Alcantara, Douglas Costa, Robert Lewandowski. Subs- Medhi Benatia, Arjen Robben, Rafinha, Arturo Vidal, Mario Gotze, Kingsley Coman, Sebastian Rode.

PREDICTION: With that firepower up front and a renowned tactician in Pep Guardiola, the German Champions is unlikely to slip like they did against F.C. Porto last season and they will come out of this tie as eventual winners.
