Benfica just as good as Juventus, says Salvio

The Argentine is keen to deliver the Europa League title for the Primeira Liga leaders and believes his side can stun the Bianconeri

Benfica star Eduardo Salvio insists that his side are just as good as Juventus as the two sides prepare to do meet in the Europa League semi-finals.

The Bianconeri are seeking to reach the final of the competition on home soil and are hot favourites to see off the Portuguese side.

However, the Argentine has claimed that his team possess just as much quality as Antonio Conte's men and is eager to claim a trophy he won with Atletico twice in 2010 and 2012.

"Juve are a great team. It's true - they have super players, some of the best Europe has to offer at the moment," he told Tuttosport.

"But we are also a tough team with lots of quality. It will be a very balanced tie and will be decided by small details.

"We will give it our all because the club want the trophy and we want to give it to them and to our wonderful fans."
