  • Rangers have won seven and drawn two of their last nine Europa League matches at home.
  • Ranges are unbeaten in their last five Europa League matches (W2 D3).
  • Rangers are unbeaten in all their previous 11 UEFA competition matches at home against Portuguese teams (W8 D3).
  • Rangers have only failed to score in one of their last 12 UEFA competition matches.
  • Rangers have won eight of the 11 previous UEFA two-legged ties in which they drew the first game away but lost the most recent, against Slavia Praha in the 2020/21 Europa League round of 16 (1-1 a, 0-2 h). This is the first time they have drawn the away first leg 2-2.
  • Benfica are unbeaten in their last five UEFA competition matches (W2 D3).
  • Benfica have lost only three of their previous 13 UEFA competition matches against Scottish teams (W6 D4).
  • Benfica have lost only two of their last 14 UEFA competition matches away from home (W7 D5).
  • Benfica have not lost the second leg in any of their last nine UEFA competition two-legged ties (W5 D4).
  • When they have drawn the first home leg of a UEFA tie, Benfica have recorded seven aggregate wins and seven losses, not including the 2021/22 Europa League round of 32 elimination by Arsenal at neutral venues. The last such example was also the first time a home first leg has finished 2-2, against Ajax in the 2021/22 Champions League round of 16, a 1-0 second-leg win in Amsterdam taking them through.
  • Benfica are aiming for a sixth quarter-final in the UEL era which would be more than any other club


The first-leg of this tie saw Rangers take the lead twice in Lisbon before being pegged back by an underperforming Benfica side. Philippe Clement has performed extremely well in charge of the ‘Gers so far and he will be confident of producing another memorable European night at Ibrox. Benfica head to Glasgow under major pressure after some really underwhelming performances and results of late and that continued at the weekend, despite defeating Estoril by three goals to one. Backing an entertaining Rangers victory would seem good value for this one.
