Benfica have already wrapped up this season's Portuguese Liga and League Cup titles but still greater glory awaits, with the unprecedented achievement of four major honours very much a realistic prospect after a stellar campaign.

"You have to be really good to reach a final, and I have a great deal of respect for this Sevilla side who will compete in the final with us. They have every right to win this competition outright. "
