I am sure I am not the only one that thinks this game should never have been played in Baku.
The fact Arsenal had to leave Henrik Mkhitaryan at home due to the political situation between Azerbaijan and Armenia is absolutely unfair on the player and the team and is a sad indictment of how UEFA operates to the sound only of cash being filtered into their accounts.
Add to that the fact that these are two London rivals and are based just a few miles apart, and there are any number of venues that would have been far more convenient.
That said, I still feel that this could be a great final.
Neither of these sides are in particularly good form, both are scoring goals but also leaking them defensively and both have this trophy to play for to finish off the season. Chelsea have earned Champions League qualification for finishing third in the Premier League but Arsenal need to win the trophy to earn a place in that competition next season.
