Benfica VS Shalke 04 match analysis

Benfica will play for their pride and to secure their progress in Europe League tonight.Their best sttriker Oscar Cardozo is back after injury and he managed to score 3 times in last 2 games.Benfica is very strong at home winning all last nine games!! nine straight wins , in 6 of them they got a clean sheet!Pablo Aimar is back after injury.Seven of their last 9 wins are even with two or more goals.Benfica won all two previous games at home against Hapoel 2:0 and against Lyon 4:3.They played great in Israel last round but the luck wasnt with them and Israel team scored 3 from 3 shots. Shalke won over Beyern last round in Bundesliga with 2:0 and showed that Magath team is finding the winning way,but still they are in very poor position in the league.I expect Shalke to rest some regulars , to keep them fresh for incoming weekend game against Mainz away from home.Shalke is very poor traveler,having 2 wins in their last 10 away games.One of their best players - Jefferson Farfan is suspended and will miss the game.Jones and 2 more players are set to play for b squad after suspession from Magath.Raul got injured and was substituted on 60th minute in the game against Bayern. I expect strong motivated home side to win over rotated and unmotivated german team
