Europa League Final: Preview

The culmination of the 2018-2019 Europa League competition take place on May 29th with the winners automatically qualifying for next season's Champions League.

Chelsea finished 3rd in the Premier League and have already qualified for the Champions League so this is 5th placed Arsenal's last chance to qualify and also win silverware.

With so much to play for, and two fierce London rivals contesting the Europa League trophy, it’s set to be one of the most exciting Finals in quite a long time.

If you’re having a bet on the Final, you’ll find bookmakers have already started to offer a range of generous betting offers and enhanced odds deals that you can use on the match.

British bookmakers offer Chelsea as favourites to win, but Arsenal actually finished the season in better form and cruised into the Final on the back of a 7-3 aggregate win over Valencia.

Chelsea only went through on penalties after drawing 2-2 with Eintracht Frankfurt.

Unai Emery’s side have also won 5 of the last 10 matches they've played against Chelsea in all competitions, with Sarri's side only winning twice and 3 of the fixtures ending in draws.

Although there is a lot of excitement about the 2019 Europa League Final between Chelsea and Arsenal, there has also been quite a lot of controversy surrounding the match.

Limited tickets have been made available to each club, and the cost and difficulty of getting to the Final in Baku, Azerbaijan has turned a lot of fans off.

The location has also caused issues, with Arsenal's Armenian midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan missing the match due to the political tensions between Azerbaijan and Armenia.

In the lead up to the 2019 Europa League Final; Chelsea v Arsenal, we've taken a look at both team’s form, and any player injuries that could affect who you decide to bet on.

Chelsea had a pretty solid season, securing a 3rd place spot in the Premier League, and beating Eintracht Frankfurt 4-3 in a penalty shootout to reach the Europa League Final.

Maurizio Sarri’s side come into the match as the bookmakers favourites, however they haven’t the best track record against Arsenal and this won’t be an easy match for Chelsea to win.

The last time Chelsea won a Europa League Final was back in 2013, and although Sarri will be looking to add to his silverware, he's also dealing with a number of injuries.

Loftus-Cheek was injured in their last match and is set to miss the final. Also ruled out are Cahill, Rudiger, Hudson-Odoi, Ampadu and Van Ginkel, while Kante is expected to be back.

It’s a close call when you have two of the leading teams in English football meeting in the final, and while bookmakers expect Sarri to be successful, he'll know that Arsenal aren’t a walkover.

Unfortunately, Arsenal just missed out on a top 4 Premier League spot, and the Europa League offers Emery his final opportunity to make it through to next season’s Champions League.

The Gunners have been playing well and look strong as they come into the Final on the back of a 7-3 aggregate win over Valencia in the Semi-Finals of the competition.

A hat-trick from Gabon striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and a goal from Alexandre Lacazette saw Arsenal through to the Europa League Final with a 2-4 away win in Spain.

The last time Arsenal made it to a Europa League Final was in back in 2000, when they lost to Galatasaray in a spectacular penalty shoot-out.

Emery’s men will be hoping for better success against Chelsea on Wednesday night, and with Danny Welbeck due back after injury, Arsenal's squad is looking strong.

That is apart from Henrikh Mkhitaryan, who'll miss the Europa League Final due to a concern over the Armenian's safety due to Azerbaijan's dispute with neighbours Armenia.

Neither side should underestimate their opponents, it is a Final after all, and as both teams will be determined to beat their London rivals, this one could go either way!

Bookmakers offer Chelsea as the favourites, but Arsenal will be determined to win and earn the right to play in next seasons prized Champions League competition.
