All English Europa League final on the cards as Chelsea and Arsenal are kept apart

Ben Darvill 15 Mar 2019

Arsenal will take on Napoli and Chelsea face Slavia Prague in the quarter-finals of the Europa League, with the pair still in with a chance of meeting one-another in the final after the two Premier League sides were kept apart in the draw. 

The Europa League draw did not fail to disappoint on Friday as Europe’s secondary competition threw up some very interesting ties in the quarter and semi-finals. Chelsea, who are currently the favourites to win the competition, were given a favourable tie against Slavia Prague after the Blues came through against Dynamo Kyiv in an 8-0 aggregate win. Bar taking on Chelsea, Arsenal were given the worst draw as they must take on Serie A giants Napoli if they are to make it through to the semi-finals. There is an all-Spanish tie as Villarreal take on Valencia, while Benfica host Eintracht Frankfurt in the first league of the final match. 

In conjunction with the quarter-final draw came the semi-final draw, which saw Arsenal and Chelsea kept apart, meaning an all-Premier League final is still on the cards. The winner of Napoli vs Arsenal will take on one of Villarreal and Valencia, while Slavia Prague and Chelsea will battle for the right to face the winner of Benfica and Frankfurt. 

With all of the in mind, the bookies have been reacting to the draw, and Chelsea maintain their status as the favourites to win the competition. The Blues are currently 7/4 with BetVictor, while Napoli (7/2) and Arsenal (9/2) have both drifted following their draw together. Valencia are next up at 8/1, while Eintracht Frankfurt and Benfica are both available at 10/1. Villarreal are 16/1, and the betting is rounded off with Slavia Prague, who are huge outsiders at 66/1. 

Chelsea will really fancy their chances of winning the competition following their draw, and while Arsenal have been handed a very tough test, they will back their own ability and cite that if they can beat Napoli, then they can go all the way too.
