Europa League Final Preview
The West London side will be boosted in confidence after improved domestic form has them in pole-position to claim third place in the Premier League this term. A 1-0 win over Manchester United is the perfect lead up to the big clash against Benfica.
Benfica are locked in a battle for domestic glory with perennial title challengers FC Porto, but hold a point-advantage at the top of the division with a game in hand currently. The Estadio da Luz team will look to their more experienced players such as Oscar Cardozo and Pablo Aimar to lead them to glory in the clash with the English side.
Although Chelsea eliminated Benfica from the Champions League on their way to glory at the Allianz Arena last year, this clash really could go either way, with two top teams on show.
