After the first leg, where Inter was perceived as an outsider against Benfica, the Italian club left Portugal with a very favorable score (2-0). On the return, at San Siro, the Italian club will have to confirm against the Portuguese formation, which recovers in its ranks its experienced central defender Nicolas Otamendi (35 years old), suspended in the first leg. In difficulty in Serie A (5th), Inter hopes to reach the semi-finals of the Champions League, which would be a first since… the 2009-2010 season. Finally, for Benfica, the performance to be achieved seems important, because the Inter stadium, noisy, is not easy to take.
