Maurizio Sarri's side needed penalties to see off Eintracht Frankfurt but they're seen as the most likely winners against the Gunners on May 29

One country will provide all four finalists in the major European competitions for the first time in history.

Chelsea and Arsenal will meet in the Europa League finale in Baku on May 29 before Tottenham and Liverpool do battle in Madrid for the Champions League four days later.

Having missed out on a top four spot domestically, the Gunners can secure a place in next season's Champions League by coming out on top - something Chelsea have already achieved via their finishing position in the top-flight. That adds another layer to what is already a fascinating contest.

888Sport go 4/6 (1.67) that Maurizio Sarri's side are crowned champions while the same firm are an industry best price on the Gunners at 5/4 (2.25).

The Blues certainly had a tougher time of qualifying, edging out Eintracht Frankfurt on penalties at Stamford Bridge. Meanwhile, Arsenal recorded a comfortable 7-3 aggregate win over Valencia thanks to an impressive 4-2 victory at the Mestalla.

Chelsea are 5/4 (2.25) favourites to win the final in normal although their preparation for this match could be somewhat interrupted.

Following their clash with Leicester City on the final day of the Premier League season, Sarri's side head to the United States of America for a charity match against New England Revolution on May 15.

Despite finishing behind their London rivals in the table regardless of the final matchday's results, some punters may be tempted by the 2/1 (3.0) about Arsenal given they don’t have any post-season plans and can fully focus on this blockbuster clash.

It's tough to look past Emery's record in this competition too. The former Sevilla boss has won the Europa League three times and come out on top in his last 19 knockout ties, including finals.

Conversely, while Sarri has managed at the top level for several years, the Italian is yet to win a major trophy.

Home advantage proved crucial in the Premier League meetings between the pair this season with each side coming out on top when playing in front of their own fans. With a neutral venue here the draw in 90 miuntes is available at 43/20 (3.15) with 888Sport.

The final in Baku may be Eden Hazard’s final game for Chelsea with the Belgian heavily linked with a move to Real Madrid in the summer. The 28-year-old is 15/8 (2.88) to find the net in normal time.

The same quote is available on Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who fired a hat-trick in Arsenal’s semi-final second leg clash with Valencia. Alexandre Lacazette struck twice in the first meeting and is 9/4 (3.25) to get on the scoresheet in the final.
