    Date 24 May 2017
    Venue Friends Arena, Solna
    Referee Damir Skomina (Slovenia)
    .
    .
    .
    .This will be the first time since 2002 that a Dutch club has reached a UEFA Cup/Europa League final (Feyenoord); Manchester United are the third English side in five seasons to reach the final (Chelsea in 2013 & Liverpool in 2016).

    Ajax and Manchester United have met four times before in European competition sharing two wins apiece (two games in the first round of the 1976/77 UEFA Cup and two legs in the round of 32 during the 2011/12 Europa League campaign).

    This will be the third meeting between English and Dutch sides in a European final (also Spurs v Feyenoord in 1974 and Ipswich v AZ in 1981, both in the UEFA Cup).

    Ajax are in their first European final since their penalty shootout defeat to Juventus during the 1995/96 Champions League campaign.

    The Europa League final will be played exactly 22 years after Ajax claimed their last European trophy by beating Milan in the 1995 Champions League final; that game featured Justin Kluivert's father, Patrick, and Daley Blind's father, Danny.

    The Dutch club have lifted the trophy in six of their last eight major European finals whilst the Red Devils have won four of their six; those two defeats coming in the most recent appearances however (2008/09 & 2010/11 Champions League finals versus Barcelona).

    Manchester United have reached the final of the Europa League/UEFA Cup for the first time in their history.

    The Red Devils have gone 10 matches unbeaten in this competition (W7 D3); conceding just four goals in that time.

    This game will be the 56th official game for Ajax this season, a new club record for the Amsterdam side.

    Ajax have lost two of their last three Europa League outings; letting in seven goals across that period.

    Ajax have lost three of their last four matches played in the UEFA Cup/Europa League against English opposition (W1) whilst United have lost two of their last three in this competition versus Dutch clubs (W1).

    Just two of the last 16 UEFA Cup/Europa League finals have been decided by a penalty shootout (Sevilla beating Espanyol on penalties in the 2006/07 edition and then doing the same to Benfica in the 2013/14 campaign); 10 have been won in 90 minutes with a further four being decided in extra time.

    There have been nine goals scored across the last two Europa League finals (an average of 4.5 per game).

    José Mourinho has won all six meetings with Ajax as a manager; those previous matches have all come in the Champions League with Real Madrid.

    Stockholm's Friends Arena is hosting a UEFA club competition final for the very first time.

    Marcus Rashford has been directly involved in each of Manchester United's last four goals in the Europa League (two goals & two assists).

    Hakim Ziyech has recorded four assists in his last three Europa League appearances for Ajax.

    No player has recorded more shots on target this season in this competition than Bertrand Traoré (16); only Zenit's Giuliano (14) has been directly involved in more goals this term than Traoré (8 - four goals and four assists).

    Only Patrick Kluivert and Ton Blanker (both 7) have scored more goals than Kasper Dolberg (6) as a teenager for Ajax in European competition.

    Amin Younes (73) has completed more dribbles in the Europa League this season than the next two best players combined (Paul Pogba, 37 and Bertrand Traoré, 31).

    No he won't. He'll win EL tomorrow (95%) and fail at round of 16 or quarter finals of CL next year.

    I was reading an article in BBC (http://www.bbc.com/sport/football/40003173) and it has this picture of Ajax team that won CL in 1995. Fucking scary team!

    I don't think there has ever been such a huge price difference between the two finalists in any European cup.

    I agree with Pooya on that, as much as i want Ajax to win, i don't see it happens.
