Europa League Special
Two English rivals will go head to head in the Europa League 2018/2019 final at the Olympic Stadium, Baku, Azerbaijan. Europe’s second-biggest competition has produced a captivating competition with two teams from one country and the same city playing to be crowned champion.
There’s more at stake than the honour of being called champions. Both are avoiding a trophyless season. Arsenal is hoping to win to qualify for the Champions League next season. On the blue side, Mauricio Sarri knows the outcome of the match will have a say in his continuance as Chelsea coach next season.
There are no real injury worries for both teams. The Premier League is over and the two teams are out of their domestic cup competitions. Although, Arsenal will be disappointed with the news that Henrik Mkhitaryan will not be travelling with the team. This is due to his Armenian roots and his country’s political tension with Azerbaijan where the final will take place.
The player posted a tweet to confirm the report when he sent a message on Twitter via his official twitter handle @HenrikhMkh while taking the opportunity to wish his teammates good luck.
Chelsea is in the final after defeating Eintracht Frankfurt on penalties after normal time and extra time ended 1-1 apiece. Arsenals’ progress was pretty straight forward winning against Valencia both home and away. The fixtures ended 3-1 and 2-4 with an aggregate score of 7-3 in favour of Arsenal to qualify for the final.
Although Chelsea is slight favourites with the bookies and still undefeated in the competition this season. Arsenal poses a great obstacle for them with their expressive and exciting football backed by the pedigree of one of the most successful coaches in the competition’s history.
Both clubs are one time winners of the competition albeit arsenals’ victory coming in the 1993/1994 season when it’s was still known as Uefa cup. Chelsea win is quite recent against Benfica in the 2013/2014 Europa League season.
Petr Cech veteran goalkeeper for the gunners and part of the squad that lifted the trophy at Chelsea announced that he’ll be retiring after this season. Winning the Europa League will be a proper send-forth to one of the all-time greats in English football.
The two clubs are familiar foes in the domestic league but have never been paired together in this competition which adds to the drama. Olivier Giroud who switched sides to Chelsea is the competition’s top goalscorer alongside Frankfurt’s Luka Jovic with ten goals each.
This will present an opportunity for him to pull clear as the outright winner of the golden boot. Pierre Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette have both scored eight and five goals respectively.
In this contest, regardless of fan loyalties, this promises to be intriguing to fans of both club and neutral’s alike. As the season comes to an end, this is a match you do not want to miss.
Of all the possible betting outcome for this final. The one we are sticking with is the Over 1.5 goals. We are watching the progress of each team as the matchday approach. The latest betting tips will be made available on confirmbets.
