Europa League: Benfica - Chelsea

Benfica-Chelsea

The Europa League final may not get as much attention as the Champions League final, but it is still an extremely important competition for the participating teams.

Benfica will be taking on 2012 European champions Chelsea in the final of the competition. If it was not for Chelsea, Benfica would have been a favourite to win the title.

Chelsea’s presence means that Benfica are the underdogs, but that does not seem to worry Benfica midfielder Pablo Aimar.

In fact, Aimar thinks that Benfica have a pretty good chance of upsetting the odds since he does not think Chelsea are as good as everyone reckons them to be.

According to the Mirror, the 33-year-old has said that this could possibly be the worst Chelsea team since the start of the Roman Abramovich era.

Chelsea have only recently managed to secure a top four spot after struggling for most of the season. They are playing in the Europa League as a result of being knocked out of the Champions League in the group stages itself. They, thus, have the ignominy of being the first Champions League holders to be knocked out at the group stages.

Chelsea started the season with an opportunity to win an unprecedented seven titles, but they will now be only capable of lifting the Europa League.

“Since they have inherited a wealthy owner, this is probably the weakest Chelsea team there has been. Chelsea lost two great players in ­Didier Drogba and Michael Essien. It is amazing how much a team can change in 12 months, but that is ­football,” said the 33-year-old.

Despite this, Benfica will have reasons to be worried about Chelsea. Rafa Benitez’ men come on the back of an undefeated run that stretches to eight matches.

This has been a period of transition for Chelsea, as they have been trying to reduce the age of a squad. The team has several young players, and it does not look as a bad season looking from this perspective.
