Liverpool v Benfica live stream, BT Sport, Wednesday 13 April, 8pm BST

Liverpool will be looking to complete the job on Wednesday after a first-leg victory over Benfica.

The Reds did not have everything their own way in Lisbon last week. The first half was pretty comfortable for Jurgen Klopp's side, who established a healthy lead via goals from Ibrahima Konate and Sadio Mane. But Darwin Nunez halved the deficit within seconds after the restart after half-time, and Benfica (opens in new tab) proceeded to put Liverpool (opens in new tab) under heavy pressure for the next 20 minutes.

Klopp's men succeeded in riding out the storm and Luis Diaz found the back of the net late on to give them some additional breathing space. It is hard to envisage Liverpool not making it through to the semi-finals from here.

Klopp will no doubt have half an eye on Saturday's FA Cup semi-final against Manchester City (opens in new tab) when he picks his team for Wednesday night. Liverpool drew 2-2 with the Premier League leaders at the weekend, leaving the title race finely balanced. 

Liverpool have an advantage ahead of this weekend's clash at Wembley in terms of preparation: they are at home and face gentler opponents in the form of Benfica, with City set to travel to Madrid to face Atletico (opens in new tab) on the same night.

Diogo Jota, Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane were given the nod to start up front at the Etihad, so we are likely to see Klopp ring the changes here. Roberto Firmino and Diaz will both hope to start, and there could be alterations elsewhere too. Naby Keita is a contender to feature from the first whistle in the midfield three, while Konate could come into the team at centre-back.

Lucas Verissimo and Rodrigo Pinho are long-term absentees for Benfica, who are currently third in the Primeira Liga behind Sporting CP and Porto (opens in new tab). Gilberto, Alex Grimaldo, Rafa Silva, Julian Weigl and Goncalo Ramos were given the weekend off but should return here.

Kick-off is at 8pm BST and the game is being shown live on BT Sport 3 (opens in new tab) in the UK.

Use a VPN to watch a Inter v Liverpool live stream from outside your country

If you’re on holiday or just simply out of the country, your domestic on-demand services won’t work – the broadcaster knows exactly where you are from your IP address. Your access to the game will be automatically blocked, which is annoying if you’ve paid a subscription fee and don't want to use an illegal stream that decides to buffer at the worst possible moment. And that's where we recommend ExpressVPN (opens in new tab) (more on which below). 

All you need to do is get a Virtual Private Network (VPN) to get beyond such aggravations (assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs). A VPN creates a private connection between your device and the internet, meaning suppliers can’t work out where you are and what you’re doing. The info going to and from is entirely encrypted.

There are plenty of options out there, including: 

ExpressVPN including a 30-day, money-back guarantee

FourFourTwo’s brainy office mates TechRadar (opens in new tab) love its super speedy connections, trustworthy security and the fact it works with Android, Apple, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, PS4 and loads more. You also get a money-back guarantee, 24/7 support and it's currently available for a knockdown price. Go get it! 

NordVPN with quality mobile and desktop apps

A cheaper option and almost ExpressVPN's equal when it comes to quality, too. A single subscription covers six connections, so you can use it on mobile, laptop, streaming devices and more, all at the same time.

Surfshark offers a great VPN at a fraction of the price

It's clear to see why Surfshark is top of TechRadar's best cheap VPN table – it combines an excellent product with bargain pricing, starting at £2/$2.50 a month!
