Benfica earned the final as we played better than Juve in both legs. Juve are a good team, but defensively Benfica played very well, Xinhua quoted Jesus as saying.

We had the advantage from the first leg and controlled all their movements in the second leg. We deserved to reach the final because we were better than Juve, he added.
