Europa League Final: Arsenal have NEVER beaten an English side in a UEFA competition as they prepare to face Chelsea
Posted by badgeemmybxt

The Olympic Stadium in Baku, Azerbaijan is the venue for the first ever all London Europa League Final.

Arsenal and Chelsea will pit their wits against one another on Wednesday at 8pm.

The Final represents a chance for the Blues to claim their first European trophy since beating Benfica in 2013 in the same competition.

But for the Gunners, there are deeper scars to heal - especially when it comes to European competition.

After failing to beat Barcelona in the 2006 Champions League Final, Arsenal have never reached a European final.

In 2009 they were knocked out of the same competition at the semi-final stage, while last season saw them also fall at the final four of the Europa League - with eventual winners Atletico Madrid securing victory.

And history suggests that is unlikely to change on Wednesday.

Arsenal have never won a UEFA competition match against another English club in six attempts (D2 L4).

Their last three have all also ended in defeat - at Liverpool in the second leg of their 2007/08 UEFA Champions League quarter-final (2-4) and in both legs of the following season's semi-final against Manchester United (0-1 away, 1-3 home).
