    Seems like both arsenal and Chelsea have returned quite a few tickets back to UEFA. Think arsenal and Chelsea have returned 6k tickets out of the 12k allocation and even sponsors are returning tickets lol. Not sure how true that number is but its going to be an awesome final with half the stadium empty.

    Well done UEFA, well done :p

    Picking a stadium for a European cup final in a far flung, non-European country in political turmoil with its neighbour.

    You couldn't make this **** up.

    Complete shambles. Wonder how much Platini and Co got bunged this time round?

    Again the fans get shafted by the men in suits

    My question is, how do F1 fans manage to get there then what looks like a sell out?

    Probably a lot of locals for that.

    Plus you’re looking at people going from all over the world to one destination. Not entirely from Two (or one) cities.

    Just watched a twitter where Baku police are filmed harassing Arsenal supporters with Mkhitaryan shirts.

    Unbelievable.

    Unsure who I want to win, if Arsenal win my Fifa 19 Henrik Mkhitaryan card will get an upgrade to 92! On the other hand if Chelsea win my Alonso card will get upgraded to 91.

    Think I am leaning towards an Arsenal win. :p

    Chelsea look very fractured, Arsenal don't, but Hazard can make the difference if he's up for it.

    Think Arsenal will do it.

    Hoping for a Chelsea win tonight, don't really want Arsenal having the increased pull of Champions League football next season.

    What difference does it make to Liverpool?

    It's an Olympic stadium, not primarily for football, and there are a total of 5000~ Arsenal and Chelsea fans combined there :o

    They think it'll be full, but I doubt it.

    Increased competition. You've got a decent manager at the helm, two amazing strikers and a half decent squad. A few high profile players and you could be a very dangerous side next season.

    If Chelsea didn't have the transfer ban hanging over their heads I'd favour Arsenal tonight but I don't want Arsenal getting stronger tbh.

    Typical Liverpool fan. Scared of competition.

    You really do just say things for the sake of talking don't you rob? Typical Arsenal fan :/

    I want Chelsea to win for the simple reason is that 5 teams in the CL means less money for each PL side in the CL.
