Pablo Aimar believes his Benfica side will beat Chelsea as the current Blues line-up are the weakest for last decade.
The pair are set to meet in the Europa League final on Wednesday in what is sure to be an extremely riveting clash in Amsterdam.
The game represents the Londoners last shot at silverware this season, although their campaign may still be judged to have been a success if they manage to qualify for the Champions League places.
The Blues won the Champions League last year but have struggled at times this term and Aimar is confident his side will emerge victorious in the Dutch capital.
“Since they have inherited a wealthy owner [Abramovich], this is probably the weakest Chelsea team there has been,” he said. “Of course, Chelsea are a big club, but this is not the same team that won the Champions League a year ago. This team got knocked out at the group stages.
“They have not been convincing in Europe or in the Premier League. And it is a team that is not behind the coach [Rafael Benitez]. We can take advantage of the fact they are not at their best and not playing as a team.”
