Benfica vs Inter face this Tuesday 11 from 2:00 pm for the first leg of the quarterfinals of the Champions League 2022-23. This match will be played at the Estadio da Luz and will be televised by ESPN (504 Movistar TV)
Benfica reaches the quarterfinals of the 2022-23 Champions League after beating Brugge of Belgium, while Inter Milan did the same with Porto of Portugal.
How does Benfica arrive?
For the Lisbon team, the mission is clear: to reach the semifinals of the 1990 Champions League for the first time. The team’s star, Gonçalo Ramos, is used to pressure. He was at the center of the international spotlight during the Qatar 2022 World Cup when then-coach Fernando Santos chose him as a starter ahead of Cristiano Ronaldo in the knockout match against Switzerland.
He responded in the best way, with a hat-trick in the 6-1 win of the ‘Seleçao’, and many were quick to consider him the natural heir of the almighty CR7, saving the obvious distances.
In March, the striker dazzled against Club Brugge in the second leg of the Champions League knockout stages, scoring a brace in a 5-1 triumph, which led Benfica to the quarter-finals for the second consecutive season.

And how does Inter Milan get there?
Facing Benfica and Goncalo Ramos will be an Inter that dreams of repeating its European title of 2010, although in recent weeks it has more reason to doubt than to trust.
Last Friday they only drew 1-1 in their visit to Salernitana for Serien A. That point was the only one that Inter added in the last four league games, which has caused the ‘Nerazzurri’ to fall to fifth place and leave the Champions League zone this weekend.
“Against Benfica, it’s going to be two tough games,” interim coach Simone Inzaghi predicted last month. “We want to allow our Tifosi to keep dreaming,” he confided then.

Benfica vs. Benfica Inter Milan: possible line-ups in the Champions League
Benfica: Vlachodimos; Bah, António Silva, Veríssimo, Grimaldo; Aursnes, Florentino, Neves, João Mário; Gonçalo Ramos and Rafa Silva. DT: Roger Schmidt.
Inter Milan: Onana; Darmian, Bastoni, Acerbi; Dumfries, Barella, Brozovic, Mkhitaryan, Dimarco; Lukaku and Lautaro. DT: Simone Inzaghi.
Benfica’s chances to qualify for the semifinals will probably depend on Tuesday’s game and need to win, while Inter is not going through a good moment as Simone Inzaghi’s side failed to win in the last four Serie A games (one draw and three defeats). Pick: Benfica 2, Inter 1.
