Chelsea 4-7 for European glory
Ahead of Wednesday’s Europa League Cup final, Coral make Chelsea their 4-7 favourites to lift the cup. Victory over Benfica would see the Blues become the first team to win UEFA’s top-two club competitions in reverse order in successive campaigns. It’s 11-8 for Rafa Benitez’s men to overcome their Portuguese opponents inside normal time and 9-1 they win by means of a penalty shootout.
With Demba Ba cup-tied having already represented Newcastle earlier in this competition, Fernando Torres is set to lead the Chelsea attack. It’s 15-8 for Torres to score in 90 minutes and 10-3 for the Spanish international to score and Chelsea win.
“Chelsea go into the match with the psychological advantage of having beaten Benfica in both legs of last season’s Champions League quarter-finals, but with Jorge Jesus’ men having looked very impressive in qualifying for the final in Amsterdam, we can expect a very close affair,” said Coral’s Tim Reynolds.
“The early money on the match result betting points towards a win for Chelsea so we’ll be hoping that Benfica can do us favour,” added Reynolds.
