Liverpool Manager Rafa Benitez has received a boost as he prepares his side for tomorrow's Champions League clash against Benfica with the news that Xabi Alonso is fit to play.
Speaking on the eve of the last 16 clash Benitez said, "Xavi is ok. He has travelled, he is well and he can be fit for tomorrow's game." And Rafa is also happy to be returning to Champions League action on the back of some fine domestic form. He said, "The team is playing very well at the moment and we've just enjoyed good wins against the top 5. "The Champions League is another competition and we know what we have to do. Our players have the experience of what it takes to win this competition and our idea tomorrow is the same, we want to score a goal and not concede if possible. "It will be difficult because they are a good team with an experienced Manager and we have a lot of respect for them. They have a number of good players and their two central defenders are good in the air and can play the ball. "Petit is a good player in midfield and of course there's Simao on the wing." Benitez was asked about comments made by rival Managers this week, but he refused to be distracted from his team. He said, "I like to see my team winning and not talk about other people, I have a clear idea about this. If people want to talk about us it must be because we're doing the right things and progressing."
