Custodio sentences Benfica to Europa League defeat
Friday 06 May 2011
Portuguese sides Braga and Porto emerged victorious from last night's Europa League semi-final second legs to book their place in the Dublin final on 18 May.
A single goal from Custodio, heading home a Hugo Viana corner on 18 minutes, gave Braga a 1-0 win over Benfica to tie the aggregate scores at 2-2. Domingos Paciencia's side made it through on away goals to reach their first European final.
Porto, who won the competition eight years ago when Jose Mourinho's team overcame Celtic, lost 3-2 at Spanish side Villarreal but went through 7-4 on aggregate. Radamel Falcao, who scored four in the first leg, was among Porto's scorers.
