Match background Only this chapter

Lech Poznań's first UEFA Europa League group game in five years brings them up against two-time runners-up Benfica, who are competing at this stage for the first time in 11 years.

Previous meetings
• This is the clubs' first meeting in UEFA competition.

• Lech faced opposition from Lisbon the last time they contested a UEFA Europa League group, in 2015/16, drawing 0-0 twice against Belenenses. Their only other UEFA encounters against a Portuguese club came in the 2010/11 UEFA Europa League round of 32, when they beat Braga 1-0 at home but lost the tie after a second-leg 2-0 defeat.

• Benfica's long history in UEFA competition contains just two previous pairings with Polish opponents, both in the UEFA Cup Winners' Cup first round – victorious ties against GKS Katowice in 1993/94 (1-0 h, 1-1 a) and Ruch Chorzów in 1996/97 (5-1 h, 0-0 a).

Form guide
Lech
• Runners-up to Legia Warszawa in the 2019/20 Polish Ekstraklasa, Lech thus returned to Europe after a year's absence and are now participating in the UEFA Europa League group stage for the third time.

• Dariusz Żuraw's side came through four qualifying ties to reach this stage, beating Valmiera 3-0 at home before stringing together successive away wins at Hammarby (3-0), Apollon Limassol (5-0) and, in the play-offs, Charleroi (2-1). On their group stage debut, in 2010/11, they qualified alongside Manchester City at the expense of Juventus and Salzburg before losing that round of 32 tie to Braga, whereas in 2015/16 they managed just five points and finished third in their section behind Basel and Fiorentina.

• Lech's home record in the UEFA Europa League proper is W2 D3 L2. They failed to score in all three home fixtures in the 2015/16 group stage (D1 L2) but have managed 17 goals in seven European home qualifying ties since then (W5 D1 L1), finding the net at least once in all of them.

Benfica
• Runners-up to Porto in the 2019/20 Portuguese Liga and Taça de Portugal, Benfica's bid to make it 11 successive appearances in the UEFA Champions League proper foundered on entry in this season's third qualifying round when they lost 2-1 at PAOK. They are therefore competing in the UEFA Europa League group stage for the first time since the competition's inaugural 2009/10 season, when they topped their section and went on to reach the quarter-finals.

• Despite their extended absence from this juncture of the competition, Benfica have played more matches in the UEFA Europa League knockout phase than any other club (40) and were runners-up in both 2012/13 – to Chelsea – and 2013/14 – to Sevilla. They were participants also in the past two seasons, reaching the quarter-finals in 2018/19 but falling in the round of 32 for the first time last term, against Shakhtar Donetsk (1-2 a, 3-3 h).

• The Eagles have won only three of their last 18 European fixtures outside Portugal, losing 12 including their last three away games in the UEFA Europa League. Their record on the road in the 2009/10 group stage was W2 L1.

Links and trivia
• Lech midfielder Pedro Tiba is Portuguese and has played top-flight football in his native country for Vitória Setúbal, Braga and Chaves. His record for those teams in nine matches against Benfica is W2 D1 L6.

• Tiba was a team-mate of Benfica's Rafa Silva at Braga during 2014/15.

• Jorge Jesus, who returned for a second spell as Benfica coach this summer, led local rivals Sporting CP against Polish side Legia in the group stage of the 2016/17 UEFA Champions League, winning 2-0 in Lisbon but losing 1-0 in Warsaw.

• Benfica are one of six former European Cup winners in this season's UEFA Europa League group stage, the others being PSV Eindhoven (Group E), Celtic and AC Milan (H), Feyenoord (K) and Crvena zvezda (L).
