It’s a competition which often gets short shrift with European football’s elite, but that’s not been the case for Arsenal and Chelsea who will contest this season’s Europa League final.
For Chelsea, it’s a chance to add some much-needed silverware to the collection in Maurizio Sarri’s first season in charge. This is a club with a rich heritage of winning trophies in the past decade, and they will be desperate to get one over on their London rivals here.
As for Arsenal, the Europa League represents their only chance of qualifying for next season’s Champions League given their fifth-place finish in the Premier League. For them, this is a match that has tens of millions of pounds riding on it, and also the lure of the continent’s leading competition will help boss Unai Emery as he sets about his rebuilding mission this summer.
So who will win the Europa League final? That’s the question on everyone’s lips as the two teams head out to Baku in Azerbaijan for this match on May 29.
Let’s take a look at our UEL Final predictions 2019 and see if we can unearth some betting value.
1. Europa League Final Betting
Given their relative finishes in the Premier League table, perhaps it’s no surprise that Chelsea are a slight favourite with the bookmakers in the Europa League final 2019 betting odds. The Blues can be backed at odds of 2.25 to win inside 90 minutes and 1.66 to lift the trophy, should they need extra time and/or penalties. Arsenal, meanwhile, are available at 3.10 to in normal time and 2.10 with the aid of extra time or penalties. Those odds to win Europa League reflect Chelsea’s better performances in the Premier League, but also their greater reliability as a team. Arsenal’s defence, for example, has some major question marks about it, having conceded 16 goals in their last nine games in all competitions. Yes, they have some outstanding attacking talent in Alexandre Lacazette, Mesut Ozil and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, but if they are conceding two goals every game it makes it very difficult for the Gunners to get a result.
So Chelsea to win has to be at the heart of our Chelsea vs Arsenal betting odds, and a case can also be made for betting on both teams to score too. We’ve already referred to Arsenal’s high-class attack and poor defence, and while Chelsea are a bit more solid they still have a tendency to concede goals against teams that play on the front foot against them. But the Blues have the likes of Eden Hazard, and so we expect plenty of goals to wrap up our Europa League final betting.
