Game Preview

Inter Milan will host Benfica in the second leg of their Champions League quarter final on Wednesday at San Siro, providing a much-needed diversion from the agony they are going through in Serie A. At the Estadio da Luz, Simone Inzaghi’s team was viewed as the underdog, but they returned home with a 2-0 first-leg lead to guarantee their place in the semifinals.
Expectations were low for the Nerazzurri in last week’s first leg as they endured a six-game winless streak across all competitions prior to visiting Benfica’s fortified headquarters, but Inzaghi’s team put up a resolute performance that resulted in two crosses that were decisive.
As Inzaghi’s team prepares to face Derby d’Italia rivals Juventus in the second leg of their Coppa Italia semi-final later this month, knockout competitions have been Inter’s specialty this season. However, they have failed to look good in the top flight and lost 1-0 to regional rivals Monza during the weekend due to a late goal from Luca Caldirola.
The Nerazzurri are playing catch-up in the top-four standings after picking up just one point in their last five Serie A games. They are currently ranked fifth and are two points behind fourth-placed AC Milan, who could be waiting for them in an exciting European semi final if they defeat Napoli.

Although Benfica made an effort last week, their efforts were unsuccessful as a result of wastefulness, Andre Onana, and desperate Inter defending. Roger Schmidt’s charges’ prospects in the Primeira Liga have also declined as the weather warms up.
Benfica, who have never made it to the semi-finals of the Champions League under its current name, may once again be plagued by the quarter-final curse. It was maybe the worst possible time for them to start a three-game losing skid – they had not had one like that since November 2018.
The Portuguese powerhouses Benfica have lost all four of their meetings with Inter, with the lone previous meeting at San Siro in 2004 ending in a 4-3 Nerazzurri victory in the UEFA Cup. On a more upbeat note, Benfica have gone unbeaten in each of their last seven Champions League away games.
