With Benfica, Zenit, Bayer Leverkusen, and Monaco all drawn together in Group C very few commentators have nailed their colours to the mast by picking with assuredness the sides they fancy to top the pool and progress. There is no obvious whipping boy among these four sides (as is the case in almost every other pool) and all four sides possess respectable European pedigrees and are of similar standards as current form stands.
In this context, last season’s beaten Europa League Finalists, Benfica, can scarcely afford to drop points at home against Zenit on Tuesday evening. Both sides have been on hot form domestically and will be full of confidence going into the game in Lisbon; the game stands to have a big say on which two teams emerge from this most even of pools.

Benfica vs Zenit Match Preview
Zenit St Petersburg managed to reach the Last 16 of last season’s competition with only six points. They will have to improve on that tally to progress this year. So far, they have looked excellent domestically. They’re top of the Russian league with six wins from six games under André Villas-Boas. And Brazilian striker Hulk seems to be over his World Cup night-mare: the 28-year-old has scored five times already. Zenit have added defensive strength in the shape of Benfica’s centre-back Ezequiel Garay and Manchester City reject Javi Garcia. Axel Witsel of Belgium adds crucial dynamism and creative thrust from midfield and, in Benfica, faces his former club on Tuesday with Garay.
Jorge Jesus’ side were the top seeds at the draw in Nyon but Oporto’s finest will be weakened for the loss of Lazar Markovic to Liverpool and Garay to Zenit; a replacement in Bebe does not inspire confidence. Benfica have struggled to make the grade in the Champions League in recent seasons.In the last ten seasons, Lisbon’s eminent club have only once qualified for the second round of the Champions League; in 2011-12, when they got knocked out at the quarter-final stage. Jesus’ side have, though, collected 10 points from four Primeira Liga games and sit level on points with three other teams at the summit of Portugal’s top flight.
