thumbnail Hello,

Rafa Benitez has the opportunity to finish his time at Chelsea with a trophy but Benfica have only lost once in the competition this season


Rafa Benitez has the chance to cap his short stint at Chelsea with a Europa League trophy as his side take on Benfica in this year's final on Wednesday evening.

Chelsea will be without Eden Hazard after the midfielder failed to recover from a hamstring injury, while captain John Terry is a major doubt with an ankle problem.

Benfica head into the fixture off the back of a 2-1 defeat to Porto on Sunday, which allowed Vitor Pereira's side to move top of the Portuguese Liga with just one match remaining.

Despite the defeat at the Estadio do Dragao, Jorge Jesus' men have won all but two of their eight Europa League matches this season, while striker Oscar Cardozo sits third in the competition's scoring charts.
