Benfica better technically than Chelsea – Eriksson

Benfica are technically superior to Chelsea, according to the Portuguese side’s former manager Sven Goran Eriksson.

Eriksson indicated that this could give Benfica the edge when the two sides meet in Amsterdam on Wednesday night in the Europa League final.

“Sure, Chelsea are the favourites with a very balanced squad and with very expensive players but in my opinion the technique of Benfica’s players is a tad better,” Eriksson told aBola. “Benfica’s technique is very sharp. They control the ball well and play good football.”
