Salvio Films Wild Benfica Celebrations in Lisbon at 4 a.m. After Europa League

Mark PattersonUK Staff WriterMay 2, 2014

Salvio won't play in the Europa League final after picking up a booking in Benfica's second leg against Juventus, but perhaps the scenes as the team made their return to Lisbon will make up for that.

Benfica ended up with just nine men after picking up two red cards in Turin, but held on for a 0-0 draw that saw them advance 2-1 on aggregate. They will face Sevilla in the final May 14th in Turin.

Flying swiftly back, they might have expected a quiet reception in Portugal in the small hours, but the fans were out in force at 4 a.m.

The atmosphere, as Salvio's video shows, was quite something.
