Will Eliseu bring his "Vespa" but this time with a Champions League Tittle?
After the 1962 European Cup Final, Guttmann approached the Benfica board of directors and asked for a pay rise.However, despite the success he had brought the club, he was turned down.On leaving Benfica, Guttman allegedly cursed the club, declaring, "Not in a hundred years from now will Benfica ever be European champion". Benfica have gone on to lose all eight of their subsequent European finals, including five European Cup finals (1963, 1965, 1968, 1988, and 1990), and three UEFA Cup/UEFA Europa League finals (1983, 2013 and 2014). Before the 1990 final, which was played in Vienna, where Guttmann was buried, Eusébio even prayed at his grave and asked for the curse to be broken.
Can you break the curse and win another European Cup?
