Victory at Manchester United FC would take SL Benfica through as Group C winners and Jorge Jesus, along with strikers Rodrigo and Óscar Cardozo, tells UEFA.com they can do it.

Victory at Manchester United FC would take SL Benfica through as Group C winners and coach Jorge Jesus and strikers Rodrigo and Óscar Cardozo tell UEFA.com they can succeed at Old Trafford.

SL Benfica missed the chance to qualify for the UEFA Champions League round of 16 with two games to spare when they were held at home by FC Basel 1893 last time out. On Tuesday, however, they have the occasion to book progress as Group C winners – provided they can end Manchester United FC's two-year and ten-match unbeaten competition record at Old Trafford.

That is no simple task, of course, but coach Jorge Jesus and strikers Rodrigo and Óscar Cardozo – who scored in the 1-1 home draw with United on matchday one – believe Benfica have a real chance of completing a perfect third away win in the group. Watch our video to see the interviews.
