  • Toulouse have won three and drawn one of their last four UEFA competition matches at home.
  • Toulouse are without a win in their last six home matches in all competitions (D3 L3).
  • Toulouse have lost an away first leg only once previously, in their first UEFA competition tie against Napoli in the 1986/87 UEFA Cup first round. A 1-0 defeat in Naples was followed by victory by the same score in France and subsequently a 4-3 win in the penalty shoot-out.
  • Toulouse have not won the second leg of a UEFA competition tie since a 1-0 away win against Panionios in the first round of the 1987/88 UEFA Cup (W 6-1 on agg).

  • Benfica have lost only one of their last ten UEFA Europa League matches (W4 D5).
  • Benfica have won five and drawn two of their previous seven UEFA Europa League matches against French teams.
  • Benfica have won their last four UEFA competition two-legged ties against French teams.
  • Excluding penalty shoot-outs, Benfica have not lost any of their last 20 matches in all competitions (W15 D5).
  • Benfica have not lost the second leg in any of their last eight two-legged UEFA competition ties. The last time was in February 2021 against Arsenal in the Europa League round of 32 (1st leg D 1-1, 2nd leg L 3-2).
  • Benfica have won 50 out of 60 UEFA club competition ties when they have recorded a victory in the first leg at home, most recently against Midtjylland in last season's Champions League third qualifying round (4-1 h, 3-1 a). The Eagles have also won 21 out of the 29 where they have taken a one-goal lead into the second leg away encounter and have the aggregate record W8 L5 when winning 2-1 at home in the first game.


In the first-leg of this UEFA Europa League knockout playoff tie, Toulouse made it extremely hard work for Benfica at Estadio da Luz, eventually suffering a 2-1 defeat due to two Angel Di Maria penalties. Toulouse are very much involved in the Ligue 1 relegation battle, though, but did manage a crucial and surprising 2-1 win away to Monaco at the weekend. Benfica, on the other hand, finally found some fluency as they thrashed Vizela in the Primeira Liga in Lisbon. Benfica remain favourites to progress but both teams scoring would appear a good bet for this one.
