Manchester United vs Benfica Live Stream: Watch Champions League 2017 Online

Manchester United and Benfica will meet at the Estadio Da Luz on Wednesday in a big Champions League 2017 group game. The game has a scheduled start time of 2.45 p.m. ET (7.45 p.m. BST) and can be watched online through live stream (details below).

Manchester United will be big favorites to win this one even though they are away in Portugal. United top Group A of the Champions League after two games with a goal difference of +6, having won both of their opening games so far.

On the other hand, Benfica are bottom of the group with zero points and a -6 goal difference from their opening two games.

Even though his team will be favorites to win this easily, United manager Jose Mourinho will still be weary of the threat posed by their opposition today. Benfica are currently third in the Portuguese league and have lost just once domestically in their opening eight games.

United also have suffered a host of injuries with Paul Pogba, Marouane Fellaini and Eric Bailly all out through injury, along with Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who will be out long term. Defenders Marcos Rojo and Luke Shaw have been improving but they both will not be fit enough to participate in today's game.

If United do manage to win today they would be on the verge of qualification for the knock out stages of the competition - something they have not achieved since the 2013-2014 season.

Historically Benfica have not enjoyed their fixtures against United; having won just once in their nine games against them, and that record is unlikely to improve in today's match.
