In an all-English rivalry, Arsenal will pit against Chelsea in the UEFA Europa League final this night of Wednesday, May 29, 2019.

The match between London rivals in Baku, Azerbaijan’s capital, will kick off at 2000GMT at the Baku Olympic Stadium with 70,000 seat capacity.

Arsenal have never won the UEFA Europa League cup before.

Turkish football giants Galatasaray beat Arsenal in the 1999-2000 UEFA Europa League final.

It is the second time Arsenal will play in the Europa League final.

Despite competing in six finals, Arsenal hold only one UEFA cup, namely UEFA Winners’ Cup in 1994.

Chelsea won 5 of 8 the UEFA finals and they eye to win the Europa League Cup for the second time after reaching the victory in 2013.

The teams met in 2003/2004 UEFA Champions League quarterfinals and Chelsea advanced to the semifinals after beating Arsenal.

Head-to-head

Chelsea’s Maurizio Sarri, 60, has never won a major honour as a manager, while his Arsenal counterpart Unai Emery has won this competition three times with Sevilla between 2014 and 2016.

His current club has had rather less success on the continent, however.

While Chelsea won the Europa League in 2013, a year after their triumph in the Champions League, Arsenal have not clinched a European title since they won the now obsolete European Cup Winners’ Cup in 1994.

Emery insists ending that 25-year wait is his first objective in Azerbaijan, despite the game also being his side’s last chance of making next season’s Champions League after a two-year absence – with qualification likely to significantly increase their summer transfer funds.
