Benfica vs Chelsea Betting Tip & Preview

Blues boast 100% record against Jorge Jesus\’ side. The English side look set to be without John Terry and Eden Hazard for the Europa League final at the Amsterdam ArenA against a side who have lost just once since September.

Benfica vs Chelsea FC
When: May 15, 2013 7:45 PM BST
Where: ArenA — Amsterdam
Referee:‬ B. Kuipers
Tip: Benfica 1 – 3 Chelsea
Odds: 3.20 | 3.40 | 2.40 – Sign up with bet365 for a free bet up to £200

Benfica go into the game on the back of a disastrous last-minute defeat to arch rivals Porto which could cost them their domestic title – their first loss since September.

On the injury front, though, manager Jorge Jesus doesn’t have any problems to contend with.

Rafa Benitez is set to be without John Terry (ankle) and Eden Hazard (hamstring) for the Europa League final after both picked up injuries in Saturday\’s 2-1 win over Aston Villa.

Fernando Torres will continue in attack for the Blues as Demba Ba is cup-tied having already turned out in the competition for Newcastle earlier in the season.

Apart from that, Chelsea have a fully fit squad to take to Amsterdam.

PROBABLE LINEUPS

BENFICA: Arthur, Pereira, Luisao, Garay, Melgarejo, Matic, Perez, Salvio, Lima, Gaitan, Cardozo

CHELSEA: Cech, Azpilicueta, Cahill, Ivanovic, Cole, Luiz, Ramires, Oscar, Mata, Moses, Torres

Prediction: Jorge Jesus\’ side are a mixed bag. At times they are capable of producing some exhilarating passing football at an intensity which carves teams open at will. Whereas, on other occasions, such as over the two-legged quarter-final tie against Newcastle, they can look laboured and uninspired for long periods.

Chelsea have an embarrassment of creative talent and, if afforded time and space, the likes of Juan Mata and Oscar can pick apart even the tightest of defences. A lot could depend on which Fernando Torres turns up, if the Spaniard has his shooting boots on, it\’s hard to look past the Blues.

Tip: Benfica 1 – 3 Chelsea
