Match betting pick: Chelsea v Benfica - Europa League Final

Chelsea-Benfica

Chelsea v Benfica: LIVE Wednesday 7.45pm

Chelsea winger Eden Hazard misses the match with a hamstring strain while John Terry's ankle problem is still being assessed and John Obi Mikel is a doubt. Frank Lampard is likely to play alongside David Luiz as the two midfield holding players with Brazilian Ramires pushed forward to join compatriot Oscar and Juan Mata in a trio playing just behind Fernando Torres. Demba Ba, signed from Newcastle United in January, is cup-tied.

Benfica right-back Maxi Pereira is suspended but they have a ready-made replacement in André Almeida. They have no other absentees, although Alan Kardec is unavailable after being left out of the club's premilinary European squad.

Rafael Benitez: "If we can do it I will be really proud because we have worked so hard in difficult circumstances... Benfica are a good team and they have experience in Europe. In a final it is 50-50 and we will see what happens. A European final is massive. Maybe you can score an early goal and change the game or concede three and have to change at half-time. You have to have confidence and belief you can do well. Your team has to have the same feeling and you have to see what happens but it depends on the other team too."

Jorge Jesus: "No Benfica player has undermined the quality of any Chelsea player or the Chelsea team (referring to Pablo Aimar's quote that the current squad is the worst since Roman Abramovich bought the club). Chelsea is an excellent team and they will finish third in the Premier League this year. They have quality... Benfica is a club that throughout its history has had an excellent performance in Europe. Benfica has recovered some of its prestige over the last few years and we want to create that kind of international prestige again."
