Sevilla-FC-vs-SL-Benfica-UEFA-Europa-League-2014-Final-logo

Benfica is playing great this season. They have already won two trophies this season: Portuguese League and Portuguese League Cup, but they want to win this trophy.

Benfica have already played in the UEFA Europa League final last season against Chelsea, but they didn’t have luck and Chelsea won 1-2 by goal in the last minute.

Benfica is without lost match in their last 8 matches in UEFA Europa League.

For tonight’s match they will be without suspended Markovic (26/5 f), Enzo Pérez (28/4 m) and Salvio (12/0 m), while Silvio (8/0 d) and Fejsa (16/0 m) are both out due to injury.


Sevilla vs Benfica – Probable Lineups:

Sevilla (4-2-3-1) Beto; Navarro, Parejo, Fazio, Coke; Carriço, Mbia; Vitolo, Rakitic, Reyes; Bacca
Benfica (4-4-2): Moraes; Pereira, Garay, Luisao, Siqueira; Djuricic, Amorim, A.Gomes, Gaitan; Lima, Rodrigo


 

Sevilla have improved their performance in their last matches in Europa League beating Betis, Porto and Valencia.

Spanish club has also some problems with unavailable players.

Cheryshev (4/0 f), Cicinho (0/0 d), Cristóforo (12/0 m) and Jairo (24/3 m) are all out, while top scorer Gameiro (35/15 f) and Vitolo (29/4 f) are both doubtful.

An interesting fact – Benfica beat Real Madrid 5-3 in the 1962. and after that they have played 7 times in the final in both European competitions (UEFA Champions League (European Cup) and UEFA Cup (UEFA Europa League) and they lost 7 times. They hope this final will finally ended up their unlucky history in the finals.

Both teams want to win this trophy and I guess they will play very careful in defence, so under 2.5 goals seems like a good betting option.

Sevilla vs Benfica Betting Tip: under 2.5 goals @ 1.67 (Bet365)

FT 0-0  Tip won!
