Match of the week: Benfica vs Rangers
The biggest test ever for young Rangers. Steven Gerrard''s men put their undefeated run to 16 games as they beat Lech' last Thursday, and whispers that Celtic''s nine-year romp in Scottish football may be nearing its end are now coming into open conversation. In Benfica, they face a side that has won their last seven games and has a good offensive style.
Lech fullback Tymoteusz Puchacz has faced both teams and knows who he is supporting to win. "The Rangers don't have as much strength or quality as Benfica," says Poland International U21. "[Rangers] are not invincible." They've been late though, and what better time would there be for Alfredo Morelos, currently on par with Ally McCoist, to set a new club record for European goals?
worth pointing out
• Edin Džeko was able to play in the UEFA club competition for the 100th time as Roma' hosted CFR Cluj'. Now 34, the Bosnian has been used sparingly this season but may give Giallorossi' a nod after CSKA''s final timeout was 0-0. Džeko was among the goals this period and confirmed the all-time record class in Europe': 99 matches, 41 goals, 24 assists.
• Own half scoring is very popular this season. Kemar Roofe cleared 50m for Rangers in Matchday 1', a seven-day UEFA Europa League record before Omono's Jordi Gómez' registered from the 59m'. Who is next?
• There have already been four hat-tricks this season (unusually all away from home), just two less than the entire last campaign. Among the treble goalscorers in 2020/21' is Elvis Manu, who didn't want the UEFA Europa League' to go down in history for the last time – 70 players have screwed up the match ball over the years, but against LASK, Ludogorets was the first to do so and finish. losing side.
• The partnership of Harry Kane and Heung-Min Son' reached new heights of telepathy in 2020 / 21'. They've combined better than one goal per game in the Premier League this term, but the UEFA Europa League has yet to see the best of their double action. After Tottenham's shocking defeat by Antwerp, Ludogorets must prepare themselves for a backlash.
