Fortress Old Trafford
Jose Mourinho's men have a perfect record of three wins from three in Group A and they will qualify if they win and CSKA Moscow fail to beat Basel in the group's other match on Tuesday, or if United draw and CSKA lose.
United are 1/3 for the win (Betfair) as they bid to enhance their formidable record at Old Trafford, where they are unbeaten in their past nineteen European outings (won fifteen, drawn four).
The Red Devils are imperious on home soil as they have won all seven of their home games in all competitions and six of those have been to nil, with Ladbrokes going a best price 11/10 for another United win to nil this week.
A home win to nil looks like the best bet here as Mourinho's functional side have kept eleven clean sheets in fifteen in all competitions and they come up against a stuttering Benfica outfit that will have to do without the suspended Andre Almeida and Luisao for this trip to England.
The Eagles have won one of their past seven European matches and they have struggled for goals, with the Portuguese side losing four on the bounce and failing to score in three of those.
They simply don't have the firepower to trouble United and that was evident when United won 1-0 in Portugal two weeks ago, with Benfica failing to register a single shot on target at home! The match could follow a similar path on Tuesday.
Marcus Rashford scored the only goal when the teams last met and he is 9/2 to be first goalscorer, while Romelu Lukaku, who has notched sixteen goals for club and country this season, is 13/5 (Bet Victor) to end a five-match goal drought by notching first at Old Trafford.
