Chelsea and Arsenal both won their respective Europa League semi-finals on Thursday which means the two London clubs will go head on in the final later this month.

Much like the Champions League finale, the curtain call for the second-tier of European football will also be an all-English affair.

And this will certainly be good news for both the Arsenal the Chelsea fans.

While Chelsea now have the opportunity to end the season by winning a trophy, a win in the Europa League final would mean that Arsenal will also get back in the Champions League next season.

But this final is certainly not good news for the fans of both the clubs.

The Europa League final will be played at the Baku Olympic Stadium in Azerbaijan and this is nothing short of a major headache for the Chelsea and the Arsenal fans.

The journey from London to Baku is 2,467 miles but as things stand there are no direct flights from the England capital to Baku.

The only way to reach the destination of the UEL final is to take a connecting flight with a stop-over at either Istanbul or Kiev.

So clearly both sets of fans will not have to shell out a fortune to watch their teams play in the Europa League final but they will also have to embark on a hectic trip across Europe.

While for Chelsea this will be more of a celebratory match since winning they have already qualified for the Champions League next season.

But for Arsenal, this Europa League final might just define how their 2018-19 season ends under the guidance of their new manager, Unai Emery.
