Newcastle United midfielder Sylvain Marveaux insists their Europa League tie with Benfica is far from over.

Newcastle can reach the Europa League semi-finals with a 2-0 win, but if Benfica score they will require four goals to go through in normal time.

And that means they won't be going gung-ho against the Portuguese league leaders, who are unbeaten in all competitions since October.

Marveaux said: "Hopefully, we can score quickly and then it will be a different game, but we know we can't afford to ­concede.

"I believe we have the quality in our side to beat Benfica but they are a very good team so we have to be solid."
