  • Jose Mourinho

Jose Mourinho was back at his former club with his players, who were in a jovial mood as they were put through their paces in front of English and Portuguese media ahead as the Reds look to maintain a winning start in Group A.

Benfica, on the other hand, simply need three points to preserve any hopes of moving to the next round after succumbing to a home defeat to CSKA Moscow alongside suffering a 5-0 drubbing at the hands of FC Basel.

Meanwhile, Man Utd are in a very good position after two group stage games in the Champions League having eased off to victories over CSKA Moscow and FC Basel, and they will now be looking to pile more misery on out-of-sorts Benfica.

And Mata, writing in his weekly blog, noted that the circumstances surrounding the clash could culminate in an entertaining affair at the Estadio de Luz. "If we are able to qualify before the last match, the goal becomes finishing first".

"When I first came to Benfica, the manager Jorge Jesus told me I would be playing as a defensive midfielder", Matic, who has impressed since joining United from Chelsea during the close season, told the club's television channel (MUTV) on Tuesday.

'If in this moment I want to finish my career in four or five years, my ambition would be to end my career at Manchester United. "We have a big chance to go through if we can beat Benfica".

The 1-1 draw with Maritimo and narrow win over Olhanense that ensued are enough to suggest that Rui Vitoria's side are still far from the desired form, and it remains to be seen whether they can show any sort of improvement in what is a must-win game against Manchester United.
