Porto favored in 1st all-Portuguese European final

The giant-killing feats of Braga will be put to the test for the final time this season when the team faces Portuguese rival FC Porto on Wednesday in the Europa League final.
Braga, which is only 50 kilometers (30 miles) from Porto, has already eliminated Liverpool, Arsenal, Celtic, Sevilla and Benfica.
Porto is pursuing four trophies this season. The club has already won the league title and Portuguese Supercup and reached next week's Portuguese Cup final.
The match in Dublin is a career high for the two coaches _ Porto's 33-year-old Andre Villas-Boas, a former Jose Mourinho assistant, is in his debut season, while former Porto striker Domingos Paciencia has set 19 club records for Braga over the past two years.
