🔴 Jürgen Klopp, #Liverpool coach: “Benfica maybe aren’t where they want to be in their league but it’s a tough opponent. We all know one failure, one little misstep, and at least one competition can be gone. That’s no problem for us, we’re just ready for the next challenge.”

🔴 Virgil van Dijk, #Liverpool defender: “Benfica are in the last eight. We can say one of the ‘easiest’ draws, but they are there for a reason. It’s going to be difficult. We have to show them the respect they deserve. You can make whatever you want out of this, but it’s going to be tough.”

🔵 Odysseas Vlachodimos, #Benfica goalkeeper: “Liverpool are a big club, a historic club. I will really enjoy playing at Anfield, but first I will savour our game here with our fans behind us. We will give our all and see where that takes us”
