Liverpool manager Rafael Benitez is counting on the Anfield crowd to help the defending champions overturn their 1-0 deficit against Benfica.

“I have confidence in my team, I know we must score two but we can do that,” said Benitez.

“Our supporters will make us work harder and we have scored three in the final against Milan and earlier against Olympiakos.

“Our fans are the best in the world and I believe Benfica will feel the pressure of playing in front of them and our team will be boosted by that experience.

“If we need three goals I have confidence we can do that. I know people are saying our strikers do not score, but I want to make it clear that our team is playing well and that is all that really matters.”
