Fenerbahçe stops short on brink of European final after 3-1 defeat against Benfica
 

Fenerbahçe ended a very successful UEFA Europa League campaign just on the brink of a historic first European final, after a 3-1 defeat May 2 against Benfica in Lisbon in a thrilling semifinal second-leg match.

The 1-0 victory in the first game did not prove enough, and Benfica cruised to the final, lifted by Cardozo's two goals, completing a 3-2 aggregate success. The Portuguese will now play against Chelsea, who crushed Basel 5-2 on aggregate after a 3-1 win in London.
