Micah Richards sends a warning message to Liverpool ahead of Benfica clash
Ex premier league star Micah Richards has told Liverpool to be wary of the threat posed by Benfica star forward Darwin Nunez in their UEFA Champions League quarter-final tie.
While Chelsea and Manchester City drew Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid respectively, Liverpool was given an easier tie.
Many Reds fans expect Liverpool to beat Benfica to secure their Champions League semi-finals without much trouble.
The former Premier League defender however sends a ‘word of warning’ concerning the Eagles forward Nunez. He wrote in his Daily Mail column:
“Liverpool fans will have been delighted at how the Champions League draw panned out but let me provide a word of warning.
“Darwin Nunez has caught my eye all year and he came up trumps for Benfica once again, to send them into the last eight.”
“Nunez scored his 26th goal of the season and is only 22. He is tall, strong, he runs in behind and knows how to finish.
“He’s scored against Bayern Munich, Barcelona and Ajax so far — don’t discount him doing the same against Liverpool.”
The Uruguay international has scored 26 goals and assisted twice from 33 appearances across all competitions for Benfica this season.
He netted the winner for the Primeira Liga giants in their Champions League Round of 16 tie against Ajax last week.
