[Teams] Chelsea v Benfica: Confirmed Line-Ups

Chelsea take on impressive Portuguese outfit Benfica at the Amsterdam Arena tonight in the Europa League final. Here are the confirmed line-ups for the big game.

Chelsea take on Benfica at the Amsterdam Arena tonight in the Europa League final and we have the teams.

The Blues head into the game looking to make it back-to-back European trophies after lifting the Champions League with a penalty shoot-out win over Bayern Munich in Germany 12 months ago, but they will face a stiff test against an impressive Benfica outfit.

Boss Rafa Benitez may be leaving his interim role at the end of the season but he will be desperate to add another European trophy to his CV and with a top-four finish in the Premier League already secured, the Spaniard can go all-out for the win tonight.

Here are the confirmed line-ups:

Chelsea

Cech, Azpilicueta, Cahill, Ivanovic, Cole, Lampard, Luiz, Ramires, Mata, Oscar, Torres

Subs: Turnbull, Ferreira, Ake, Mikel, Marin, Benayoun, Moses

Benfica

 Artur, Andre Almeida,  Luisao, Garay, Melgarego,  Perez, Matic, Rodrigo, Gaitan, Cardozo, Salvio

Subs: Paulo Lopes, Jardel, Aimar, Urreta, Andre Gomes, Lima, John

    Chelsea will capitulate, having one of those ‘what happened there?’ games. The final 20 minutes they will play hard,but all too late as they’ll be down 3-0. Typical of this season, 8 cups compete for, nothing to show. Why am I awake at 4:30AM for this? This is going to be an embarrassing defeat, like v Atletico Madrid. Pffft.
