Manchester United will qualify for the Champions League knockout stages with a win over Benfica at Old Trafford on Tuesday.

With group rivals FC Basel and CSKA Moscow facing up again, United can secure a spot in the last-16 of the competition if they maintain their 100 per cent record and CSKA fail to win.
