FT: Juventus 0-0 Benfica. Benfica progress to the Europa League Final on 2-1 aggregate.
90+7' Caceres! He's been absolutely robbed by Oblak! And that should be it!
90+6' Pirlo stands over the ball. His delivery his the wall and Juventus have a late corner.
90+6' Yellow card - Salvio goes into the book for handball. He also stands to miss the final.
90+5' Pirlo floats one over te defense for Osvaldo, but play is called for offside.
90+3' Just to confirm there have been six minutes added to the 90, and it wouldn't be surprising to see more than that put on.
90+2' Garay carried off on a stretcher, and it's conceivable he has a broken cheek. Benfica now down to nine.
90' Garay is down injured - legitimately injured. He was pulled to ground on a set piece, and I think it was Pogba who landed directly on his face. The Argentine is in some discomfort.
89' Vucinic, a substitute, has been sent off! And so has Markovic! It was an off-the-pitch melee, but neither will play in a potential Europa League Final!
86' Sulejmani has replaced Markovic for Benfica.
85' Markovic, who went to ground under pressure from Chiellini, remains on the ground and the stretcher is called out.
82' Osvaldo! He has the ball in the back of the net, but Pogba - who cut it back to him - is offside and the flag goes up!
Benfica have done a brilliant job this tie not giving away free kicks in Pirlo territory. Just the one (which he almost scored from).— Tom Kundert (@Portu_Goal) May 1, 2014
80' Lichtsteiner! HOW did he miss that?! He was in alone at the far corner when a cross arrived at his feet, and with the open net gaping he somehow managed to direct the ball out for a goal kick!
79' Marchisio and Osvaldo have replaced Vidal and Llorente.
Here comes the miracle man. Benfica's Salvio broke his arm 20 days or so ago. He's just come on to replace Gaitán.— Tom Kundert (@Portu_Goal) May 1, 2014
76' Salvio, broken arm and all, replaces Gaitan for Benfica. Quite the story.
76' They've been pinned back, yes, but Benfica haven't really been made to feel uncomfortable, and they've still made the occasional venture on the counter-attack.
73' Giovinco replaces Bonucci for Juventus. Full steam ahead for the Bianconeri now.
