Match background Only this chapter

Unbeaten at home in the UEFA Europa League, Benfica entertain Lech Poznań in the knowledge that victory will ensure their seventh participation in the competition's knockout phase, whereas the visitors can only stay in contention by bringing the Lisbon club's record to an end.

• After sharing two draws in Lisbon and Glasgow, Benfica and Rangers are both unbeaten on eight points at the top of the Group C standings, five ahead of Lech and Standard Liège, who traded home wins on Matchdays 3 and 4, the Polish side succumbing to an added-time strike to lose 2-1 in Belgium last time out.

Previous meetings
• The clubs' first meeting in UEFA competition, on Matchday 1, proved particularly memorable for Benfica's new Uruguayan striker Darwin Núñez, who scored a hat-trick on his first European start to help the visitors to a 4-2 victory in Poznań, Swedish striker Mikael Ishak's double for Lech proving in vain.

• 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 and Ruch Chorzów in 1996/97, with the Eagles recording wins in each of the home legs (1-0 and 5-1 respectively).

• Lech also 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.

Form guide
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, under newly reappointed head coach Jorge Jesus, 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 never been beaten at home in the UEFA Europa League – a run of 25 matches, qualifying included, that comprises 20 victories. Their first four group stage games in Lisbon all ended in victory before a 3-3 draw against Rangers on Matchday 3.

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 of Latvia 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 hat-trick of away wins in this season's qualifying phase followed a five-match winless streak on the road in European competition (D2 L3). They have lost both away games in Group C, at Rangers (0-1) and Standard, making their all-time record outside Poland in the UEFA Europa League group stage W2 D2 L4.

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

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

• Jorge Jesus, who returned for a second spell as Benfica coach in the 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).
