Paris Saint-Germain have punched their ticket to the next round and won their group and the first seed. Benfica can advance, but they’re tied with Olympiakos at seven points. The best they can do is win and hope for a favorable result in the Olympiakos-Anderlecht match.
“We are only thinking about PSG,” Benfica coach Jorge Jesus said. “We have to be aware of what is going on in Greece because we are dependent on others. It will not be easy for Anderlecht to complicate things for Olympiacos, but football is unpredictable and we have to hope.”
“We are not just here to visit Lisbon,” PSG defender Christophe Jallet said. “We are here to win another match in the competition. We want to shine in the Champions League.
“The players who play on Tuesday evening will have the chance to show they deserve a place in the team. Benfica need to win to qualify so there will be plenty of motivation.”
