BAKU – Two fans were injured this morning in Baku (Azerbaijan) following incidents between supporters of the two teams that will play the Europa League final tonight, namely Arsenal and Maurizio Sarri's Chelsea. According to a spokesman for the ministry of health, one of the two injured is a British man and ended up in the hospital with a head injury after a clash between supporters of opposing factions, while the other is a Russian citizen involved in a brawl in a bar.
Final Europa League, low participation of fans from Great Britain.
For the final between the two British formations there was not a great participation of fans from Great Britain, probably also because of the costs. Six thousand tickets per party were reserved for the supporters. Both Arsenal and Chelsea still have many fans in Azerbaijan as well, while other supporters have come to Baku from Russia.
Emery is mister Europa League: "I want to win this one too".
"Winning would allow us to add a trophy to the bulletin board and qualify for the Champions League. It's nice to experience such a moment, my players can say that they enjoy it and live it to the fullest: we arrived in the final, it's important, we played an excellent Europa League ”.
On the eve of the Baku final against Chelsea's compatriots, Arsenal coach Unai Emery, who has already won this trophy with Sevilla, is optimistic. Struggling with the Mkhitaryan package, which has decided not to go to Azerbaijan as an Armenian, the Gunners coach must also deal with the Cech case.
The 'twelfth', who will retire at the end of the season, has always played for the Europa League but his presence was questioned because he would have already signed a managerial contract with Chelsea.
"I would not like to talk about individuals, but for Cech an exception should be made – answers Emery -. He is a great man and a great player, I want to do something important for him "(source Ansa).
