Both teams are practically win the titles in their leagues. Benfica is the champion 2 rounds until the end, while Juve need only one point in the last 3 matches to win the Serie A.

Juventus have full squad available for this match, except Arturo Vidal (32/11 m) who is doubtful.

In Benfica squad, Silvio (8/0 d) and E. Salvio (10/0 m) are both injured, Ljubomir Fejsa (16/0 m) and Nicolás Gaitán (25/4 m) are both doubtful, while André Gomes (5/0 m) is out due to suspension.

Juventus was a little better side in the first match, they have ball possession and deserved one point, but few minutes untile the end, Lima scored an amazing goal and one goal advantage for his team.

Juve is in a very good form, especially when they are playing at home. In the 17 home matches this season in Serie A they won all.

Without any doubt, Juve is big favorite to go through in th final of Europa League. It won’t be an easy match, but I expect 1-0 or 2-0 victory.
