Europa League 2012-13

(From 3-07-2012 to 15-05-2013)

 

 

COMPETITION SYSTEM

·          193 teams (best qualified clubs in domestic leagues, domestic Cup winners, title holder, and extra participants) play four qualifying rounds on a home and away basis. The access of participants in these rounds depends on how their country is ranked in UCR (direct berths) or other factors (extra berths). The aggregate score of both games decides the winner. Ties are resolved with: 1) the “away goals double value” rule; 2) a 30 minutes extra-time after regulation; 3) a penalty shoot-out (pk).

·          The 48 surviving teams after the previous knock-out rounds participate in a Group Stage, divided in 12 groups of 4 teams each playing a round robin (3 points per victory, 1 point per draw). The group winners and runners-up qualify for a Round of 32, with winners advancing further to a Round of 16, Quarterfinals and Semifinals. The criteria to determine the final classification within the groups are (in this order): 1) total points earned; 2) goal average; 3) away goals; 4) UEFA Country Ranking at the beginning of the season.

·          A final game is played at a predetermined venue.

PARTICIPANTS AND BERTH ASSIGNMENT

158 entrants as a result of UEFA Country Ranking (UCR) for the period 2007-2011 and 35 more entrants depending on different factors. The berth assignment is as follows:

 

Direct berths (158): 3 countries (places 7-9 in UCR) with 4 teams; 47 countries (places 1-6 and 10-53 in UCR, except Liechtenstein, Andorra, and San Marino) with 3 teams; 2 countries (Andorra and San Marino) with 2 teams; 1 country (Liechtenstein) with 1 team.

 

Extra berths (35): 3 teams qualified via Fair Play (ranking of countries whose teams receive points based on criteria such as fewest yellow/red cards, positive play, respect for the opponent, respect for the referee, behavior of the team officials and behavior of the fans). 32 teams qualified via Champions League 2012-13 (14 losers from Third Qualifying Round, 10 losers from the Qualification Playoff and 8 third-placed teams after the League Stage).

 

 

FIRST QUALIFYING ROUND

74 TEAMS. 20 Cup champions from countries ranked 34-53 in UCR 2007-2011 (in green); 22 runners-up from countries ranked 31-53 in this UCR (except Liechtenstein); 29 third-placed teams from countries ranked 22-51 in this UCR (except Liechtenstein); 3 teams qualified via Fair Play (in pink).

RESUMEN DEL PARTIDO (GAME SUMMARY)

 

Tras un turbulento inicio de temporada, el Chelsea logró poner un brillante epílogo a su campaña con la consecución de la Europa League, apenas un año después de conquistar la Liga de Campeones. Sin practicar un fútbol excesivamente brillante, los hombres de Rafa Benítez ―cuestionado durante todo el año por los propios seguidores blues― volvieron a aprovechar al máximo su presencia en una final europea para demostrar que este tipo de partidos también se ganan desde la defensa y la eficacia. El Benfica, por el contrario, fue la otra cara de la moneda. El conjunto portugués ofreció un planteamiento valiente y ofensivo, con fogonazos de gran fútbol, pero terminó pagando su falta de definición en tiempo de descuento, cuando un cabezazo inapelable del serbio Branislav Ivanović evitó la prórroga a la que parecían conducir los goles de Torres y Cardozo. Una vez más, el sueño de los “Dragones” se esfumó debido a la “maldición de Guttman” (el técnico húngaro del Benfica predijo en 1962, tras conquistar su segunda Copa de Europa, que el cuadro lisboeta no volvería a lograr un título europeo en cien años, y de hecho, 51 años después de esta “maldición”, el Benfica ha perdido las siete finales continentales que ha disputado).

 

El conjunto dirigido por Jorge Jesus tuvo un fuerte arranque de partido, con un excelente plantemiento táctico que lograba asfixiar a la pareja de mediocentros del Chelsea, Lampard y David Luiz. Con Matić controlando el centro del campo y la tripleta atacante Enzo Pérez-Rodrigo-Cardozo buscando constantemente la meta de Čech, el Benfica dominó los primeros veinte minutos, aunque no supo resolver con acierto sus llegadas al área blue. El Chelsea, tras aguantar el vendaval benfiquista durante esta fase inicial del partido, fue equilibrando progresivamente el partido con su mayor presencia física. A los londinenses, sin embargo, les faltó clarividencia en los metros finales, pues Mata y Oscar también estaban maniatados. Pese a que las mejores ocasiones seguían siendo portuguesas, Čech o la pierna de algún defensor siempre aparecían para evitar el gol. Sin embargo, la mejor ocasión de toda la primera mitad cayó del lado blue en el minuto 38, cuando un zapatazo durísimo de Lampard desde la frontal del área obligó a Artur a sacar una mano prodigiosa para desviar a contrapié un balón que ya se cantaba como gol.

 

Tras el descanso, el Benfica continuó con su dominio del juego, pero seguía sin aprovechar sus oportunidades. En el minuto 60, sin embargo, fue el Chelsea el que consiguió inaugurar el marcador en una jugada “marca de la casa”: tras detener un cabezazo de Salvio, Čech sacó rápido sobre Mata en el círculo central y éste prolongó el balón hacia la veloz carrera de su compañero Torres quien, tras regatear a Luisão y a Artur, anotó desde una posición muy escorada. Cuando parecía que los hombres de Rafa Benítez podrían empezar a controlar el encuentro, un claro penalti por unas manos infantiles de Azpilicueta dentro del área permitió a Cardozo poner las tablas en el marcador. De ahí hasta el final, el partido se convirtió en un duelo abierto en el que cualquiera de los dos equipos pudo conseguir el gol de la victoria. Si prodigiosa fue la mano que sacó Čech para desviar una volea de Cardozo en el minuto 81, no menos espectacular fue el disparo al larguero de Lampard en el 88. Sin embargo, cuando parecía que la final estaba abocada a una incierta prórroga, en el tercer minuto de la prolongación Ivanović se elevó por encima de una defensa benfiquista excesivamente estática para conectar un fuerte testarazo bombeado que se coló por la escuadra de un sorprendido Artur. Pese a que Cahill aún tuvo que tirarse al suelo para salvar una postrera ocasión del Benfica, el Chelsea no iba a dejar escapar su oportunidad, y tras el pitido final la locura blue se desató en el Amsterdam Arena.
