Chelsea and Arsenal will be in Baku this week for the Europa League final, and we’ve taken a look at the vital stats ahead of this final, which will hopefully help you with your Chelsea v Arsenal bets.
Both Premier League sides have to make the 9,000km round trip to Azerbaijan this week to contest the first ever all Premier League Europa League final. Unai Emery has a fantastic record in the competition but Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri is chasing his first ever trophy as a manager.
It was a pretty easy route for Chelsea all the way to the semi-finals of the tournament where they met German side Eintracht Frankfurt. Before that, Sarri’s men had won 11 of their 12 matches, only dropping points in the dead rubber group game against Videoton having already won the group.
There were a few tricky moments for Arsenal on their way to the Europa League final, but they were fantastic against Napoli and Valencia in the latter stages of the tournament and that ruthless streak will stand them in good stead to win the final against Chelsea.
