Benfica focused on Chelsea - Jesus
Jorge Jesus insisted his Benfica team is fully focused on the Europa League final against Chelsea tonight after their heartbreaking league defeat to Porto at the weekend.
Jesus symbolised Benfica despair as he sank to his knees as Porto netted a last minute winner which ended the Lisbon side's unbeaten league record and lifted them to top spot in the league with a match remaining.
"At the moment, this is the most important match and it is no use to talk about previous matches," Jesus told reporters. "The Porto match just has nothing to do with this final.
"Benfica are an important club so it wasn't very difficult for them (the players) to change their mindset (after the Porto loss) and get up for this game."
