Benfica 23/20 to reach Europa League final ahead of Juventus clash
Competition: Premier League
Market: Benfica to reach Europa League final
Odds: 23/20 @ Betfair
Benfica have a great opportunity to avenge last season’s Europa League final defeat to Chelsea by reaching the final this season. The Portuguese table-toppers face the Serie A champions-elect in Juventus tomorrow night and lead 2-1 on aggregate.
Betfair are giving odds of 23/20 for Benfica to reach the final, such has been their terrific unbeaten run in the competition. Jorge Jesus’ side beat Tottenham over two legs en route to the semis and they were more than deserving of their 2-1 win against Juve last week.
They haven’t lost in their respective league since the opening day, and they have won five, drawn one in the Europa League.
Juventus will be a difficult opponent, however. The Italian giants have all but won their third consecutive Serie A title, and were unbeaten in the Europa League prior to their first leg clash against Benfica.
The Old Lady have lost just twice all season, and haven’t dropped a single point at home all through the campaign. Despite dropping out of the Champions League in the group stages, they were still unbeaten at home in a group with this season’s finalists Real Madrid.
