Estadio da Luz will be the centre of attention when Benfica and Olympique Marseille square off against each other in the first leg of the Europa League quarter-finals, first leg. The Eagles aim to recover from the Lisbon derby defeat and we are positive that they are going to adopt an attack-minded approach in Thursday’s clash. Roger Schmidt has a luxury to field the best possible side against OM.

Jean-Louis Gasset’s troops, meanwhile, suffered a dip in form, with the team extending their losing run to four games in all competitions. As Benfica are a real force to be reckoned with at home, we do not believe that the visitors are going to grab something from Thursday’s showdown.

Prediction: 2-0 (Benfica)
