According to the Mirror, Liverpool have been handed a big boost en route to their Champions League seeding by Portuguese giants Benfica. The Premier League club went onto making it into the final of the biggest European club competition last season, only to lose out to Real Madrid.
The Reds might not find themselves in the same pot as that of Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur if Benfica win their qualifying match against Greek side PAOK. This might see them facing teams like Borussia Dortmund, Napoli, Shakhtar Donetsk and Roma in the group stages, which might be problematic for them in the race to qualify for the round of 16, despite that they have a very strong team at their disposal after spending significantly in the summer.
Jurgen Klopp’s men are considered this season’s potential Premier League winners, toppling the defending champions Manchester City. However, Benfica’s draw with PAOK in their first leg of the qualifier might also see them make it to the top of the ladder in the Champions League. As a matter of fact, the Reds made it to the final of the competition in the last term as well despite being placed in the pot number 3 during the draw.
Benfica went onto score the opening goal of the night through Pizzi, who converted successfully from the spot. However, his goal was cancelled out by Amr Warda’s strike, leaving the Portuguese side with everything to play for in the second leg.
This reportedly puts the Reds in a spot of advantage in the Champions League. The Reds have already started on a high in the Premier League with two dominating victories in the first two games of the campaign against West Ham United and Crystal Palace respectively this season and would look to continue their run as the season stretches forward.
