For Benfica and Marseille, the Europa League represents the only opportunity to win major silverware this season.

Benfica are second in the Primeira Liga but Sporting are poised to win the championship soon, while they were eliminated from the Taca de Portugal by Sporting, too.

Marseille, meanwhile, are down in eighth in Ligue 1 and face a battle to qualify for Europe next season.

Benfica Team News and predicted XI

Fredrik Aursnes was sent off against Sporting and will be suspended for the next league game but that obviously doesn't apply here so he is fine to feature in the back four.

Barring any last-minute fitness issues, Benfica have their full Europa League roster to choose from.

Benfica (4-2-3-1): Trubin; Bah, A Silva, Otamendi, Aursnes; Neves, Luis; R Silva, Neres, Di Maria; Cabral.

Marseille Team News and predicted XI

Marseille, on the other hand, have a flurry of injury issues they need to contend with.

Michael Murillo, Bilal Nadir, Valentin Rongier and Pedro Ruiz are definite absentees, while Chancel Mbemba will be assessed closer to kick-off.

Marseille (4-3-3): Lopez; Mbemba, Gigot, Balerdi, Merlin; Kondogbia, Veretout, Harit; Ndiaye, Henrique, Aubameyang.
