Why Mkhitaryan Looks Set To Miss The Europa League Final

There is an underlying subplot to the game, with Gers boss Steven Gerrard in direct competition against his former manager Brendan Rodgers in the opposite dugout.

Both Scottish giants successfully negotiated their Europa League qualifiers on Thursday and are in the hat for the group stages, but focus will be on a huge league fixture at the weekend.

"I think the Europa League could be important", said Parlour earlier this week.

Rangers are back in a European group stage for the first time since the 2010-11 Champions League following their play-off win against Ufa.

"It's a big game on Sunday against a tough team so we have to recover and prepare well".

Due to bitter diplomatic relations (political tension) between Armenia and Azerbaijan, the 29-year-old could face difficulties trying to get into Baku- even with the Arsenal team.

According to Vivaro News, Armenian players are now banned from entering Azerbaijan due to tensions between the bordering rivals.

The Blues will be looking to repeat their 2013 feat in the Europa League and push aside their disappointing campaign last season when they failed to qualify for the Champions League.

UEFA are prepared to help Mkhitaryan feature in Azerbaijan, though it's a doubt whether exceptions will be made.

"It is a standard procedure for UEFA to send letters of support to associations, clubs or embassies in order to obtain visas for players in order to be able to travel to another country and play in UEFA competition matches".
