Chelsea had won the Europa League title in 2013 as well.
Arsenal will play in the Europa League next season, too. Had The Gunners’ won in the final, they would have qualified for the Champions League as well.
To note, due to security concerns, Armenia national football squad captain and Arsenal midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan had not joined The Gunners for this match.
And Arsenal had criticized UEFA for holding this game in the capital city of Azerbaijan.
Earlier, both UEFA and Azerbaijani authorities had given Arsenal and Mkhitaryan security guarantees. But the London club had announced that after discussions with the Armenian midfielder and his family, they had decided not to take the footballer with them to Baku.
In the past, Henrikh Mkhitaryan has missed two away European cup matches with Azerbaijani clubs.
