The Gunners beat Valencia 2-4 to win their semi final tie with 3-7 on aggregate as Pierre Aubameyang scores a hat trick and Alexandre Lacazette goal gave them all the advantage to secure their place in the finals.
However, when Pierre was asked how it meant to reach final he said, “It means a lot. I think we have learned from last season [when they were eliminated in the semi-finals]. This year we didn’t make the same mistakes, so now we are through to the final and we are all happy.” and Lacazette also said, “It means a lot. I think we have learned from last season [when they were eliminated in the semi-finals]. This year we didn’t make the same mistakes, so now we are through to the final and we are all happy.”
The Blues on the other hand, sealed their place in the final by beating Eintracht Frankfurt 4-3 on penalties after the match ended 1-1 after extra time with 2-2 on aggregate. Kepa, Blues goalkeeper, who saved two penalties at shootout to enable them go through to the finals, had this to say after the match, “Penalties, it’s a little bit lucky. Today we win, in the other final, we lose. Today was really, really good. We played against a very strong team and we are very happy. Always we prepare all the penalty shoot-outs and we are lucky today. Wembley was [the] past, I learned, I say sorry to all the people. Today was another semi-final, we are very happy with the qualification to the final in Baku. We have a very strong final against Arsenal, local derby” This will be the first time in the history of European football that one country has monopolized the two finals meaning that both trophies will head to England.
