EUROPA LEAGUE FINAL: It’s a Premier League shootout for both the Europa League and Champions League titles this week. First up CHELSEA v ARSENAL in the Europa League Final on Wednesday in Baku. We preview the match with a recommended BETDAQ bet.
CHELSEA V ARSENAL
8pm It’s the start of a fantastic few days for Premier League clubs as Chelsea and Arsenal do battle in the Europa League Final. Having all four finalists in the Europa League and Champions League Final is a superb achievement for the Premier League; however the build up to the Europa League Final has been less than ideal. Henrikh Mkhitaryan misses out because of the poor political situation and it’s fair to say that getting to and from Baku has been a tough trip for fans, and tough financially too.
The show must go on and when the teams step out onto the pitch, we’re bound to have an excellent game. The match odds at the time of writing currently trade; Chelsea 2.52, Arsenal 3.15 and the draw is 3.4. While in the ‘Winner 2018/2019’ market, Cheslea are trading 1.79 and Arsenal are 2.24. Not much in it then.
Both sides have come sailing through most of this competition without too much fuss. Arsenal struggled away against Rennes however they corrected that situation very quickly in the home leg. Chelsea hadn’t really been tested up until the semi-final where they needed to go to penalties to beat Eintracht Frankfurt after two draws – however Frankfurt are an excellent side and have been in great form in 2019.
Arsenal have won two of their last three meetings against Chelsea, and the blues definitely look a few ticks short at 2.52. We expect Arsenal to make this match a lot closer than those odds suggest on Chelsea. Remember the 2017 FA Cup Final? Nobody was giving an Arsenal a chance; but they beat Chelsea pretty easily in the end.
We expect a very close game with the draw coming into it and that’s definitely worthy of consideration at the 3.4 mark. Arsenal are also tempting in the Winner market at 2.24 – however we’re going to go with Arsenal to win in 90 minutes at 3.15 which looks very good value. There won’t be much between these sides and we can’t have Chelsea as short as 2.52 with Arsenal trading as big as 3.15. Emery has a superb record in this competition and Arsenal have a good recent record against Chelsea; the 3.15 looks great value.
