Newcastle take on Benfica on Thursday 11th April, 2013, with kickoff at 20:05. This match is currently being shown LIVE on ITV4.

The Geordie boys started really well in Lisbon in the first leg of this tie, but some sloppiness allowed their hosts to take control of the game and by the full-time whistle Benfica had achieved the expected result with a good 3-1 win. Newcastle have struggled to score in Europe of late, and that will need to change if they are to have any hope of putting out the tournament favourites.

You know the crowd will be very up for this game, and Newcastle certainly have the ability to win, but getting the form right has been tough for Alan Pardew recently.
