Two teams that started their European season’s in the Champions League will now finish when they meet up in Amsterdam at the UEFA Europa League final.
Chelsea, who know all about playing in a European final, would do well to pick up a trophy to cap off Rafa Benitez’s tenuous stay with in London. Benfica, who have lost seven straight European finals, hope to reverse the voodoo that is on them and get a massive pick me up after potentially losing the Portuguese League title last Sunday in a loss to Porto.
Also in action on Wednesday is the Copa Libertadores. Defending champions Corinthians host Argentine side Boca Juniors, while Argentine clubs Velez Sarsfield and Newell’s Old Boys face off as well for a place in the quarterfinals.
Finally, the first-leg of the Canadian Championship final kicks off on Wednesday night in Montreal as the Impact host the Vancouver Whitecaps.
