"Benfica look 400 per cent better than any other time I've seen them this season, especially their home game v Bordeaux."
Get your P45 slips out at the ready!

"Come on boys! Good luck let's do this!!!!! #CFC #EuropaLeague."

And before I forget, here's some amusing pre-match colour from earlier that I am only too happy to share with you all - again from Dan!
"Bizarrely Eurovision-esque tone to pre-match proceedings in the stadium. The Chelsea fans' belting out of Blue Is The Colour was just concluded with a comment from the match hostess to the stadium that: "Wow - that gives me chicken skin." No, me neither."

First up, it's Eden Hazard: "It's hard to be there and not play. I'm even more nervous, but I trust my team-mates.
And last but not least, Demba Ba: "Benfica had a good season, but we want to plant a knife in their back. Today is the final and it must be won. This is what Benitez said to us."
Easy there, Demba!

"The Benfica players make their way onto the pitch for their warm-up, with their Chelsea counterparts following suit only minutes later. The stadium is by no means full yet some 45 minutes before kick-off, but both sets of fans meet their heroes with an approving applause..."
And in the other corner - via Dan again: "The thorny question of whether or not this competition matters to Chelsea has come up numerous times during the day: among both fans and journalists I've spoken to. I can reveal this not-very-surprising conclusion: no Chelsea supporter wants to lose this game. Whatever the misgivings many may have about the status of the trophy, it would complete the clean sweep of three Uefa titles for the club - and no other English team is yet to do that."

"Amsterdam may be known for other things, but it is currently crawling with blue shirts. The local workforce are enthusiastically trying to beckon the new visitors to part with cash, but most seem more interested in drinking and singing. All very good natured as things stand (or, more realistically stagger), with the whole canal-side scene a sight to behold. Rush hour crowds milling with Europa hoardes outside Centraal Station. What sounds like a Katie Melua-inspired number of bicycle bells rings in the background."
7:11 PM BST
Former Amsterdam ArenA favourite Patrick Kluivert told BeIn Sport: "Everyone says that Chelsea are the favourites. Over two matches, it would have been logical, but in one game, everything is possible.
"Both teams have players who can decide the game. My prediction? 2-1 to Benfica. Goals from Cardozo and Gaitan, and Torres for Chelsea."
Meanwhile, Robert Pires - another of European football's cardinal sons - guessed: "1-1 - Benfica to win via penalty shootout."
7:05 PM BST
"Chelsea have made their way to the Amsterdam ArenA, with Rafa Benitez leading his team off the bus. The Spaniard seems to be in a good mood some 90 minutes before kick-off, even though his record against Benfica gives him little reason for optimism. Benítez oversaw four games against Benfica while Liverpool manager, losing three and winning only one."
6:55 PM BST
BENFICA (4-3-3): Artur; Luisao, Garay, Andre Almeida, Melgarejo; Gaitan, Matic, Perez; Cardozo, Salvio, Rodrigo
CHELSEA (4-2-3-1): Cech,; Azpilicueta, Ivanovic, Cahill, Cole; David Luiz, Ramires; Oscar, Lampard, Mata; Torres
6:53 PM BST
Moving onto the scenes currently in the capital city, here's what you can expect to see - courtesy of Stefan once more:
"Plenty of Benfica and Chelsea fans have found their way to the city centre ahead of the game, although the 'Dam square remains remarkably quiet for now. Pub owners between the 'Dam and the central station have no reason to complain, though, as their terraces are filled with football fans having a beer to get in the mood. The sky has opened up a bit after a dark morning and there's even a bit of sun every now and then."
6:50 PM BST
"Just arrived at the media working area at the Amsterdam ArenA and it looks like we're in for a real treat today. No, I'm not talking about the actual game, but about the opening ceremony that will precede the final. Uefa proudly announces that it has taken inspiration from two of Netherlands' most iconic images - tulips and windmills - that have been used in dramatic and surprising ways to introduce various key elements of the ceremony."
6:38 PM BST
Can the Blues join Bayern Munich, Ajax and Juventus in an elite group of clubs to have won all three major Uefa trophies, or will it be the Eagles who end a 50-year wait for a major European title?

I've been Livio Caferoglu, and it's auf wiedersehen from everyone at Goal.com!
10:45 PM BST
He said: "Messi was not injured, but he was not feeling okay, and I thought that in his situation he would not help the team.
"We would have taken the risk of playing Leo towards the end of the match if we still had a chance of making the final."
The full story is coming right up so don't go anywhere!
10:29 PM BST
Time for winning coach Jupp Heynckes to enter the fray now - this is what he had to say on Bayern's progression to yet another Champions League final:
He told reporters: "We had a great game and played outstanding football. My team were extremely focused as they were in the first leg.
"It was certainly our decision to take a 1-0 lead here. Barcelona without Messi is quite a difference. This must also be taken into account."
10:20 PM BST
"It was a very tough tie. We have to thank the people for all their support from when we arrived on the bus until the end of the game. We will return to fight for it next year. Forca Barca."
And Xavi, courtesy of Canal+: "The team tried in the first half but after Robben's goal it was impossible. I congratulate Bayern, they were better.
"It's not fair to say that German football is better than Spanish only because of these matches, though."
10:08 PM BST
The Dutch winger told Sky: "When you win so convincingly, what more could you want? We have shown that we have a great team.
"We have so much quality as you can see to win a game like that. The squad has improved and we have grown as a team."
Elsewhere, the Frenchman said to the Canal+ microphones: "I hope we will win [the CL] this time. Dortmund are a team that are not easy to play and play a little like us.
"I've already lost two finals but I don't want to lose a third. We'll play as we played tonight."
9:57 PM BST
The midfielder said: "Bayern are playing at a very high level at the moment, technically, physcially, tactically, psychologically. Congratulations to them."
Meanwhile, the club president added: "We have to congratulate Bayern. They were clearly the better team and deserve to be at the final in Wembley."

It was like they already knew their fate... no, but seriously who could blame them?
