Chelsea remain the team to beat in this season's Europa League, priced at 6/4 (2.50) with bet365 to go all the way to victory in Baku.

While they remain in the hunt for a top four spot in the Premier League, this competition provides a better chance of achieving a place in next season's Champions League according to the latest odds, albeit only marginally.

Perhaps the most impressive performance of the last eight though, came as as Arsenal kept back-to-back clean sheets against Napoli, triumphing 3-0 across the two legs.

Unai Emery knows this competition well, having led Sevilla to a hat-trick of titles before his move to North London and the Gunners are 5/2 (3.50) to lift the trophy next month.

Both prices on the leading duo are current industry-best quotes from bet365 who appear keen to take on the Premier League pair.

A semi-final meeting with Valencia awaits Emery's side, with the first leg at the Emirates Stadium on May 2 before a trip to the Mestalla a week later.

Los Che can be backed at 7/2 (3.50) to win the competition after they got the better of Villarreal in an all-Spanish affair in the quarter-finals.

Frankfurt are the outsiders of the quartet although at 11/2 (6.50) the power-packed Bundesliga outfit may attract some support having disposed of Benfica in the previous round.

Having trailed 4-2 going into the second leg, Adi Hutter’s men recorded a 2-0 win on home soil to seal their place in the final four on away goals.

bet365 customers can back an all-English final at 7/5 (2.40) by doubling the “To Qualify” odds on both Chelsea and Arsenal although a standalone market will also be available in due course.
