STANDARD LIEGE - EVERTON
Liege have now played three matches against Liverpool and Everton this season and have yet to lose inside 90 minutes. They drew the first leg 2-2 and the temptation to sit back and hold on to what they have,might be too great, especially as they must do without injured Brazilian striker De Camargo. That could be fatal, Everton have performed better on the road all season and are now becoming experienced european campaigners. Liege are clearly a good team and the best that Belgium has to offer, but at level ball and odds against, I am happy to take the visitors, who have a couple of match winning performers in their team and are again motivated to do well in this competition.

BENFICA - NAPOLI
I seem to be discussing these two on a very regular basis. Napoli won an entertaining first leg 3-2 and something similar this evening would not surprise me, I certainly expect that we will see a few goals. Having watched the Benfica defence twice recently, it would take a brave man to bet on them keeping a clean sheet against almost anyone, they are extremely error prone. My feeling is that Napoli would be better off out of the tournament and just concentrating on a top 4 finish in the league, which they are capable of obtaining. However, they are forgetting how to lose and probably want to keep the sequence going, so seem sure to give of their best. Plenty of attacking options for the hosts, "over" for me.
