*Update: I'm bumping this up to the top so that for anybody who missed this, and would like to ask a question, can. I'm going to email the questions to them in about 12 hours (9:09 pm BST). Ask away!

The focus at the moment for Manchester United is surely on today's Premier League tie versus Bolton Wanderers (Match Preview). However, the Reds will venture to Estadio da Luz in Lisbon for a UEFA Champions League group stage clash with SL Benfica on Wednesday. We went outside the SB Nation network this time in search of a Benfica site in English -- what we found was Planet Benfica -- they were kind enough to do a 'Question & Answer' exchange with us ahead of United's first Champions League match for this season. In order to provide enough time to gather questions from you, our readers, and also for enough time for the writers at Planet Benfica to respond, we are posting this now. I will be sending the questions over to them before I head to bed on Sunday.

United certainly have familiarity with Benfica in European competition. It was in 1968 at Wembley when United manager Sir Matt Busby captured the club's first European Cup in a famous 4-1 victory over Benfica -- a side that featured the great Eusebio. The Reds have also recently clashed with Benfica during the 2005/06 and 2006/07 Champions League competitions. This is a great opportunity to familiarize yourself with the Portuguese side ahead of Wednesday's match. Give us your questions to find out more about the famous club!
