Competition: Europa League
Market: Benfica to lift the trophy
Odds: 8/11 @ Ladbrokes
Benfica have a great chance to put the past failings in this European competition behind them as Seville stand in their way of winning the 2014 Europa League – with the side having lost to Chelsea last season’s final.
Jorge Jesus’ men have beaten tough opposition to make it this far, with Tottenham & Juventus just two of the sides having fallen to the sword en route to the final. They’re unbeaten in the tournament still and have only conceded four goals in eight games.
Seville are winless in their last four games in all competitions and have picked a bad time to hit a slum in form. The side have recently lost to Athletic Bilbao, Villarreal, Getafe and Valencia (Europa League) so Benfica will fancy their chances.
As a result, Ladbrokes are giving odds of 8/11 for the Portuguese Liga winners to win the Europa League tonight. They’ve been consistent each game and remaining unbeaten and boasting a tight defensive record is no mean feat.
