Minute By Minute

  • End Time
    The final whistle is blown.
    Wayne Harrison, reporter: Like in their semi-final, Salzburg were a goal down until after hour but had enough about them to turn the game around. And just like on Friday, Daka Patson scored from an assist by Hannes Wolf. How their substitutes paid off. Salzburg become the first team from the Domestic Champions path, which was only introduced last season, to win the Lennart Johansson Trophy. They also end the UEFA Youth League campaign unbeaten in nine games. For Benfica, this is a second final defeat.
