Sevilla are celebrating wildly after sealing Europa League glory with a 4-2 win on penalties after a goalless draw. There was nothing to choose between them after 120 minutes but the two penalties missed by Benfica were dreadful, characterised by the stuttering run-ups of Cardozo and Rodrigo, and it will be Sevilla who will lift the trophy in a few moments' time.
GOAL! Benfica 2 Sevilla 4. Gameiro smashes his penalty into the top corner to win the final for Sevilla.
The final whistle goes and the Europa League final will be decided on penalties after a goalless draw in Turin.
Benfica's final change sees Gaitan replaced by Cavaleiro, who has a reputation as a proven penalty taker.
There has been no sign of the deadlock being broken in the last few minutes but Lima injects some pace into proceedings with a run down the left, but his cross is headed away.
The thoughts of the managers may well have turned to penalties, as the two benches can be seen in intense discussions.
A couple of players have been suffering with cramp and Bacca is the latest to go down after failing to chase down a long ball.
Sevilla make their final change of the night and it is Figueiras who comes on for Vitolo for the closing stages.
Gameiro goes for goal rather than trying to play in Bacca but only succeeds in hitting the side-netting from the corner of the area.
The second half of extra-time gets underway and it remains to be seen who will emerge as the hero, or villain, of the day.
The first period of extra-time comes to an end and we are still waiting for an opening goal, but the tension has been steadily rising all night and we will have a winner in the next 20 minutes or so.
Marin, who only came on as a substitute late in the second half, is replaced by Gameiro. The assumption is that he must be injured.
Rakitic picks out Bacca with an exquisite pass and the Colombian's speed takes him though on goal, but he then tries to beat Oblak with the outside of his boot and shoots wide.
Lima hits a free-kick from 20 yards through the defensive wall, but it is still not close enough to the corner to trouble Beto and he makes a comfortable save.
Benfica's second substitution sees Siqueira make way for Cardozo in an attacking move from boss Jesus.
Coke is shown a yellow card after hauling down Gaitan and putting a halt to a potentially promising Benfica attack.
It has been an end-to-end affair for much of the evening and the energy that has been expended is becoming evident, with the tempo much slower just at the moment.
Benfica's latest attack breaks down as Sevilla stay camped just outside their own area and lave no gaps to infiltrate.
Mbia slides in on Gomes with tackle that leaves both men grounded. Mbia seems to come off worse and requires attention from the physio.
Extra-time begins and the title of Europa League champions is still up for grabs after a goalless 90 minutes.
The final whistle goes but it is not full-time yet. The teams have to be separated tonight so there will be extra-time and, if needed, penalties. Both sides have had chances in an entertaining match but have lacked the cutting edge.
Lima crosses from the right towards Rodrigo on the far side, but Mbia gets back quickly to head it behind for a corner.
This game has really ebbed and flowed but right now it is Sevilla who are hanging on as Benfica try to snatch a winner before we enter extra-time.
Rodrigo swings an inviting in for Garay and Beto finds himself in no-man's land as he makes a mess of trying to punch the ball clear, but the Benfica man cannot quite control his header and it loops over the bar.
Lima almost breaks the deadlock in spectacular fashion as he rifles a ferocious shot from 25 yards towards the top corner, but it is just far enough out that Beto can get back and turn it behind for a corner.
Rakitic sets off on a rapid run but he is surrounded by six red shirts as Benfica keep their defensive discipline.
Siqueira digs out a cross from the left but Rodrigo is unable to reach it as Moreno keeps him shackled in the centre.
Lima lays the ball off to Rodrigo on the edge of the area but his shot is expertly blocked by Fazio, who has been excellent all evening.
Sevilla make their first change of the night as Reyes goes off to be replaced by Marin, who is on loan from Chelsea.
Benfica win a free-kick and a loose ball in the box falls kindly for Garay, but his instinctive shot from a narrow angle crashes into the side-netting.
Pareja shows good pace to stay with Lima and then make a good challenge as Benfica threaten down the right.
Fazio steps in to win the ball from Pereira and drives forward ominously, but his final ball is poor and Oblak intercepts the low cross.
Pereira carves out a good chance for Lima but he scuffs the shot under pressure from his defender and Sevilla scramble it clear.
Reyes is left clutching his face following a very high boot from Gomes, which leaves a cut on his neck, but there is no punishment from the referee.
Benfica are finding it hard to get out of their own half as Sevilla continue to build up a head of steam.
Oblak comes through a crowd of bodies to powerfully punch clear a floated cross from Carrico on the left.
Sevilla win a free-kick in a decent area and Rakitic delivers it in towards Fazio, but he cannot quite connect with the header as he intends and Benfica survive.
Oblak is fine to continue and will have to be alert as Sevilla are enjoying one of their best periods of the match just at the moment.
The game is becoming increasingly stretched as Reyes unleashes a ferocious shot from inside the area. Again, though, it is straight at Oblak and the keeper parries it out. He reacts quickly to gather the ball off the rebound but he does catch an unintentional knee in the face and the physio has to come on to administer treatment.
Moreno slides in with a fabulous challenge on Lima to prevent the Benfica forward from getting off his shot from close range.
Benfica have three-on-three as they launch a counter-attack but Lima's pass towards Rodrigo is cut out by Fazio. The ball takes a deflection which wrong-foots Beto, but it goes wide of his right-hand post.
There were a couple of strong penalty appeals in the first half and here is another shot, as Lima claims that he has been fouled in the box by Moreno. Again, it is not the cleanest challenge there has ever been, but replays suggest the defender probably did get the ball and the referee has made a good call.
The chances are starting to come now and there is a very open feel to the game, as Reyes stings the palms of Oblak with a powerful effort from 25 yards.
Sevilla almost take the lead against the run of play as Rakitic puts Reyes clear with a neat scooped pass, but Luisao covers well and slides in with an important challenge on the edge of the area.
Gaitan's clever pass reeases Siqueira down the left and he delivers a decent cross, but Beto shows good command of his area to come and claim the catch.
Pereira spins away from his defender brilliantly and spreads the ball out to Lima, whose shot beats Beto but is then cleared by Parejo. Benfica keep up the intensity and Rodrigo has another chance seconds later, but his strike from inside the area is also blocked.
Benfica work their way into a good position with some slick passing, but Rodrigo's ball out wide for Pereira is then just too heavy and gives Sevilla some respite.
Benfica kick off the second half and will be looking to pick up where they left off at the end of the first period, having applied some pressure in the final few minutes. There have been no changes at the interval.
The half-time whistle goes and we are still goalless. Sevilla have performed well but it was Benfica who were just beginning to build some momentum as the interval approached and Beto had to pull off a couple of smart stops.
Benfica are incensed as a penalty appeal is turned down on the stroke of half-time. Gaitan is sent sprawling in the area under what looks to be a clumsy challenge from Fazio and, as the ball trickles just wide, referee Brych has a good look before deciding that he cannot give a spot-kick.
Beto is called into action twice in the space of a few seconds as he keeps Sevilla on level terms. First, he has to react quickly to parry Pereira's well-controlled volley from point-blank range, and he then gets down quickly to deny Rodrigo after a skilful run from the Benfica forward.
Pereira hits a first-time cross from the right in search of Lima at the far post, but it is just lacking direction and allows Beto to gather the ball.
The Sevilla fans are in good voice as their team pass it around in midfield, and the Spanish side have just about shaded a tight first half so far.
Pareja puts a stop to a menacing counter-attack as he dispossesses Rodrigo to concede a corner, from which Luisao crashes a header wide.
There are appeals for a Sevilla penalty as Bacca goes down in the box under pressure from Luisao, but the referee waves play on and the initial impression was that the forward was backing into the defender.
Sevilla have looked good on the break tonight and this time they manage to work Oblak, as Moreno cuts inside onto his left foot and curls a shot from just inside the area which is straight at the goalkeeper.
Benfica enjoy a spell of sustained possession in midfield with some crisper passing and then win a free-kick, but Gaitan's delivery is again headed clear.
Gaitan whips in a cross from the left for Benfica but Fazio gets a strong head to the ball to see it to safety.
Benfica have not quite been able to settle into their usual fluent rhythm and are showing signs of frustration in a stop-start game at the moment, with a succession of fouls forcing the referee to constantly blow his whistle and disrupt the flow.
Reyes tries to release Bacca through the centre with a quick pass but Oblak reads the situation and rushes off his line to get to the ball first.
Siqueira is cautioned following a foul on Mbia in midfield, although replays show he may have been unlucky.
Rakitic attempts an even more ambitious shot, this time from the edge of the centre circle, but it is off target and flies high and wide of Oblak's goal.
Rakitic lines up a shot from distance but crashes it straight at Garay and Benfica get the ball clear.
Almeida has slotted in at right-back for the moment, with Pereira pushed forward into a more advanced wing role.
It is a shoulder problem that has been afflicting Sulejmani and he can carry on no longer, so Benfica bring on Almeida in his place.
Garay has regularly been linked with a move to some of the Premier League's biggest clubs and it is easy to see why he might be a target, as he shows good speed and strength to hold off Reyes.
Both these sides like to hit their opponents on the break so is an intriguing contest from a tactical point of view.
Sulejmani has been on the receiving end of two or three heavy challenges and he appears to be struggling with a bit of a knock at the moment, so Benfica may be forces into an early substitution.
Rakitic surges away from his defender down the right before producing a cross which is not in keeping with the quality of his run as it goes straight out of play.
Sevilla are nearly caught out from the free-kick as the ball is swung over to the far post and Beto is unable to collect it at the first attempt. Garay tries to turn the rebound goalwards from a tight angle but it is blocked behind for a corner.
Moreno joins defensive team-mate Fazio in the book following a wild tackle on Sulejmani near the touchline.
The free-kick is taken short as Benfica adopt a patient approach, and when the ball is finally crossed in it is easily dealt with by Sevilla.
Fazio is given an early yellow card following a high challenge on Sulejmani, giving Benfica a free-kick 35 yards from goal.
A great touch from Rakitic sets Sevilla on a swift counter-attack and Reyes delivers a low cross into the centre for Vitolo, who almost gets round the onrushing Oblak but just loses control and is offside anyway.
There have been a couple of crunching challenges already and German referee Felix Brych has had to tell some of the players just to stay calm.
Vitolo drives down the left wing before cutting the ball back to Reyes, but the former Arsenal man is tackled by Siqueira before he can get a shot away from 12 yards. There seemed to be a chance there for a moment but it was quickly snuffed out by Benfica.
Sevilla goalkeeper Beto has to be alert to claw the ball behind for a corner as Lima tries to latch on to a loose ball in the area.
A powerful header out of defence threatens to set Bacca through with a run on goal, but the flag goes up for offside.
There is a cracking atmosphere in Turin as Benfica earn an early free-kick in midfield following a foul by Vitolo on Pereira.
The players are gathered in the tunnel waiting to enter the field but for now the crowd is being entertained by an extravagant ceremony featuring lots of dancers.
Reece Barnes from Newcastle says: "I've got a bet on Benfica to win 3-1, and I always like to watch Benfica !! Howay Benfica."
Sevilla: Beto, Coke, Pareja, Fazio, Moreno, Mbia, Carrico, Reyes, Rakitic, Vitolo, Bacca. Subs: Javi Varas, Fernando Navarro, Diogo Figueiras, Marin, Iborra, Trochowski, Gameiro.
Benfica: Oblak, Maxi Pereira, Luisao, Garay, Siqueira, Ruben Amorim, Gomes, Gaitan, Sulejmani, Lima, Rodrigo. Subs: Artur Moraes, Steven Vitoria, Cardozo, Djuricic, Jardel, Andre Almeida, Ivan Cavaleiro.
Chris Green from Huddersfield is the first to get in touch, and he is predicting a 2-0 victory for Benfica.
Sevilla's passage to the final was even more dramatic as a late goal in the second leg against Valencia salvaged a 3-3 aggregate draw and victory on away goals. The Spanish side have been in the Europa League since the third qualifying round last summer and this will be their 19th match of the campaign.
Benfica will be aiming to go one step further than last season after losing to Chelsea in the final 12 months ago. Jorge Jesus' side have already won the Portuguese Liga and the League Cup and have a chance to land four trophies this season, having made it through to their domestic cup final as well. Their Europa League campaign began in the round of 32 after dropping out of the Champions League and they are the first side to reach the final without losing a game, having won six and drawn two so far. In the semi-finals, Benfica edged out Juventus 2-1 on aggregate.
