The quest is simple, but not easy: Don’t blow it.

Jurgen Klopp’s side beat Benfica 3-1 in the first leg and it wasn’t particularly close. In fact, the Reds could’ve exited the Estadio da Luz with a massive first-leg lead if it wasn’t for what’s become a troubling habit of giving up a batch of big chances in a short period of time.
The Reds will also have to navigate the emotions that came from failing to beat Manchester City at the weekend in a 2-2 draw that dampened their title hopes. And Klopp will have to handle a second leg with an eye on sealing their semifinal space against Villarreal while also having the squad ready for an FA Cup semifinal with Man City at the weekend.
Here’s everything you need to know ahead of Benfica vs Liverpool.
