'Curse of Bela Guttman' Abides as Portugal's Benfica Loses Another European Soccer Final

Late coach put the whammy on team in 1962 after being turned down for a raise; promised no relief until 2062.

The late, great Portuguese soccer star Eusebio once went to Bela Guttman's grave, asking his old coach at Benfica to lift the curse. Evidently Guttmann wasn't listening, because on Wednesday night the team lost the Europa League final to Sevilla, 4-2 on penalties.
