Team News

  • Jairo is suspended having picked up a yellow card for what the referee felt were over-exuberant celebrations as a substitute in the second leg against Valencia.
  • Vitolo is a doubt with a hamstring injury, while Cheryshev and Cristoforo remain sidelined.
  • The likes of Rakitic, Mbia, Bacca and Gameiro were all rested at the weekend, with the latter duo vying for the starting spot up front.
  • André Gomes is back available following a suspension but Enzo Perez and Lazar Markovic will both miss the final having been sent off against Juventus last time out.
  • Benfica still have injury problems with Silvio and Fejsa remaining absent, while Salvio is also suspended after picking up his third yellow card of the competition last time out.
  • Amorim and Gomes should start in midfield, with the former among a number of players rested in the league defeat to Porto at the weekend.

Prediction

  • Benfica will be looking to go one better having finished as runners-up in the same tournament last season, and this time they'll be favourites to do so.
  • The Portuguese champions have a number of players sidelined, which will give Sevilla hope, but they still have the players to overcome the Spanish outfit's threat.
  • This will likely be a closer game than first anticipated due to the absentees in Benfica's squad but Jorge Jesus side are solid at the back and should have enough quality to edge this one.

  • oh, how i`d like rakitic at barcelona

  • @opricaalex your wish is Zubi's command!

  • has the rule changed and keepers are now allowed to come off the line before the ball moves? they seem to do that a lot these days.

  • Sevilla FC Champions 2014!!!! :))))))

  • Benfica is much seuperior than Sevilla but they played with a weak team against Sevilla's maximum power. Anyway Sevilla deserved to win

  • It was meant to be, it was Sevilla's year (overturning 2 goal home deficit, scoring in the final minute of semifinal 2nd match,...). The 4 penalties were kicked brilliantly #unsaveable. Worthy champions!

  • Gutman !!!!

  • Beto is a good goalkeaper ^.^

  • Another trophy back home!!

  • Harsh on Benfica....the better team imo, but what a great game

  • ...aaaaand penalties. The worst way to end a game.

  • No goals but an amazing game.

  • Great match so far.

  • Fazio , playing so awesome in a match of such magnitude , idk why he's has'nt been picked for the argentina squad , he has been terrific all season , hope the coach changes his mind after this .

  • man benfica trying their best to score , but the sevilla defence would not back down , nail biter , what i expected this match to be

  • VAMOS SEVILLA! Bring back a trophy to Andalucia!!

  • 1-0 to Benfica

  • we know that benfica is better than juv

  • Any truth in the rumours that Rakitic will miss the game through illness ?

  • @Titou14 Rakitic has said he and Sevilla are ready for the game of their lives, I think he'll be in the line-up.

  • waannna see the eagle

  • 1-1 penalties Beto MOM

  • Força Benfica. Make as Portuguese proud, although I hate you guys. lol 3-1 for Benfica, is my prediction. Força Portugal. From a die hard Sporting fan, and juve lover.

  • @DelJuve temporary dance

  • @commandozap Did not understand what you said, mate.

  • Hooping we witness an indelible feast with lots of drama and worthy winner. Stash and munchies would be best sport snack here..

  • @Excelsior_rmcf Pritzels , cupcakes , cheese balls so dope

  • @Excelsior_rmcf Post Waffle Crisp Cereal is the best , hands down ! Also Pizza rolls and Doritos..

  • 1-0 Sevilla (Bacca)

  • 2-1

  • Thats 3 pardon.

  • Sevilla ! Emery deserves it. When you score 94th minute goal to get your team through , you shouldn't have any doubt which team is mentally stronger and this matters a way more in finals. Benfica have fractured mentality owing to Guttmann curse. To conclude i think Sevilla are fav to bang in 2-3 goals. If one of the benfica player shows audacity to make his team win on his own , thats the only way they can break the curse. But i dont beleive in these curse drivel but sevilla have advantage of 2 missing key benfica players too

  • @commandozap plus when you overturn 0-2 loss at home (against Betis) you're pretty much in the driving seat to win the whole competition.

  • This comment has been deleted.

  • @Hewlett777 Name 1 team that has overturn 2 goal home deficit??? (it doesn't happen). It's meant to be their year. Sevilla will be crown champions

  • @espana Also europa matters a lot to sevilla traditionally ,they are 2 times winner , just one away from the record

  • Why are you so sure that oblak will take the place of experienced arthur moraes?

  • moraes???? seriously???? lol....oblak starts

  • benfica deserves to win

  • BEST OF LUCK FOR BENFICA!!! :)

  • Remember what happen to your rivals Porto?

  • @soul_snatcher they ended up 3rd this year after being champions last year with a disappointing season both internationally and domestically having won nothing? that Porto?

  • Sevilla 3-0 Benfica. Sevilla delivers when it matters. Bacca , Gameiro , Rakitic , Marina , Reyes , Mbia are too much to handle for depleted haunted benfica

  • Hola F8ck

  • Sevilla + Carlos Bacca + Colombia= Sevilla Champion

  • Carrega Benfica!

  • Benfica has a lot of missing players but even so I think they win.

  • Djuricic doesn't usually play as a winger, so expect Sulejmani or maybe Cavaleiro to play there. Besides that, I think the starting XI will be that.

  • 1-2 Benfica win!

  • Preview please!

  • @zhimipe what a name!
