Shortly after we saw two English teams confirmed for the Champions League final, the same thing happened in the Europa League, with Arsenal enjoying a 7-3 aggregate victory over Valencia after two entertaining matches.

Meanwhile, Chelsea were made to work hard for their place in the Baku final, with the Blues eventually coming through on penalties despite being the first team to miss against Eintracht Frankfurt.

So we have a London derby taking place in Azerbaijan, with both clubs being given a pitiful number of tickets and the majority of supporters will be watching the game at home.

We’re slightly surprised to find Arsenal trading at such a big price to win the game, with Unai Emery having previously won the Europa League on three occasions with Sevilla.

While Emery has been unable to steer the Gunners to a top four finish, Arsenal have overcome Napoli and Valencia to make it to the Europa League final, with the Spaniard now hoping that his team can secure this silverware and make sure of Champions League football as a result.

There are two reasons to feel confident about Arsenal’s chances, with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette making them potent in attack and it’s certain that the pair will line up against Chelsea.

Maurizio Sarri’s team were hanging on against Eintracht Frankfurt in the semi-final and they lost against Arsenal in their most recent encounter, with the latter triumphing with a 2-0 scoreline thanks to two first-half goals.

Indeed, there has been little to separate the two teams in terms of Premier League points accrued this term and we can’t help but feel that Chelsea are too reliant on Eden Hazard.

Olivier Giroud will come up against his former club but his match time has been limited throughout the campaign, while Gonzalo Higuain isn’t the solution either and we think that Arsenal look more like the team for the big occasion.

The Gunners are odds-against on the Draw No Bet market which means that you will get money back if the clash ends all square, although we think that Arsenal might be the ones lifting the trophy.
