Spartak Moscow have had a mixed start to their league campaign suffering defeat on the opening day before bouncing back to win over the weekend.
Having already been in competitive action Rui Vitoria will be hoping to make use of his side being the sharper of the two.
However, Benfica have put together a strong pre-season and head into the fixture off the back of some impressive results.
