There is little or nothing to compare between these two teams as they have never met since the formation of the game of Association football. Therefore, this encounter, billed for Tuesday, will create room for a new entry, statistically.
Based on current club form, Benfica will be approaching this encounter in high spirits, as they enjoy the top of the log in the Primeira Liga ahead of fellow Portuguese powerhouse, FC Porto. The Águias fans will hope to sing glorious songs again after watching their side beat Arouca in Estádio da Luz Lisbon in the weekend.
Conversely, Pierre-Emerick Abubameyang will hope to lift Dortmund, even if it means doing so single-handedly to help them avoid a second consecutive away loss — the last being to Darmstadt in the weekend’s Bundesliga fixture.
