The pressure is on both teams in this game as Zenit will know a win at home is crucial to their knockout phase hopes, while Benfica come off a home loss on matchday one. That should lead to an entertaining affair and while Zenit have to be favoured at home, expect goals at both ends of the pitch.
Liverpool are a wounded beast following their opening round defeat in Naples and will be keen to put that right in front of their own fans. Playing at home in the Champions League for the first time since their miraculous comeback against Barcelona in the semi earlier this year, Jurgen Klopp is set to call on his strongest team to revive their first European title defence since 2006.
Red Bull Salzburg have goals in them though, and dispatched Genk in their opening game. Haland will be keen to continue his fine record in front of goal after announcing himself to a wider audience in that thumping win over Genk last month.
