Benfica v Rangers stats and head-to-head record (H2H)

Benfica and Rangers will meet for only the third time in history on Thursday night, with both of the previous encounters ending all-square.

After being drawn in the same Europa League group during the 2020/21 campaign, the sides played out an enthralling 3-3 draw in Lisbon in November 2020, before a four-goal affair ended level a couple of weeks later in Glasgow.

Rangers come into the third meeting on the back of a disappointing home defeat to Motherwell - a result that ended their 11 match winning run in all competitions.

The Scottish giants secured themselves a last 16 berth by virtue of winning Group C, finishing on 11 points, ahead of Sparta Prague, Real Betis and Aris Limassol.

Benfica meanwhile enter the knockout stages of the Europa League after securing qualification via the playoffs (beating Toulose 2-1 on aggregate) after finishing third in their Champions League group.

The Portuguese side have however endured defeats in their last two outings - a thumping 5-0 loss at Porto and a 2-1 reverse against Sporting Lisbon.
