PSV Eindhoven team news

Roger Schmidt made a number of changes for Saturday's league clash with Cambuur, but the likes of Noni Madueke, Ibrahim Sangare, Mario Gotze, Andre Ramalho and Phillip Max will be back in the team for this match.

There are not expected to be any surprises in the Dutch outfit's side, with Madueke, Gotze and Gakpo set to operate behind lone forward Eran Zahavi, who was on the scoresheet last time out.


Benfica team news

Jorge Jesus also made a number of changes for Saturday's league clash with Gil Vicente, but the team's key players will return for this match.

Indeed, Pizzi, Joao Mario, Alex Grimaldo, Julian Weigl and Rafa Silva will all come back in, but there is unlikely to be a spot in the starting line-up for Carlos Vinicius - who has returned following a loan spell at Tottenham Hotspur.
