Match Preview

Benfica (Portugal) are on the hunt for a ninth consecutive Champions League (CL) group stage appearance as they host PAOK (Greece), a team that has never made it past this round before.
The hosts come into this off a 3-2 victory at home to Guimarães in their domestic league opener, however this game will be their second tie in Europe this month after beating Fenerbahçe 2-1 on aggregate in the CL third round. Benfica qualified for that game after finishing second in the Primeira Liga last season.
PAOK comfortably finished second in the 2017/18 Greek Superleague, sending them into the CL second qualifying round.
The new Superleague season is still three weeks away, but PAOK have already defeated FC Basel 5-1 and Spartak Moscow 3-2 on aggregate to get here.
These teams have met in two previous ties: Benfica went through in a 1999/00 UEFA Cup tie on penalties after a 3-3 aggregate draw, and were victorious again in the second round of the 2013/14 Europa League when Benfica won 4-0 on aggregate.
Players to watch: Benfica’s 2016/17 player of the season Pizzi dazzled in their opening league game with a first-half hat-trick.
Alexsandar Prijović scored for PAOK in both games against Basel, and slotted in a penalty against Spartak in the third round.
Stat attack: Benfica were very strong at home in the Primeira Liga last season, winning 14 out of 17 games (W14, D1, L2).
Benfica have a 44% win rate from 228 Champions League fixtures stretching back to 1957.
PAOK have scored in their last ten away Superleague fixtures.
PAOK scored 23 goals (1.53 on average per game) and conceded just nine (0.6 per game) in their 15 away Super League matches in 2017/18.
