What was the last European final that Chelsea played?

Sarri will direct his second final of the season in a difficult year for the Italian. The doubts with their management have caused it to be an all or nothing.

The English football returns to the European escape with four teams qualified for the finals of the Champions League and the Europa League. An unprecedented event that puts the Premier League back on the highest echelons. Chelsea will return to dispute a European final after six years of absence and only four players of that template are still present. Hazard, César Azpilicueta, Cahill and David Luiz played the European Super Cup against Bayern Munich.

In November 2012 Rafa Benitez returned to the bench after two years of absence and did it to rescue a Chelsea who was sunk. The coach could not avoid the elimination in the group stage of the Champions League, ended up being third and direct to the sixteenth of the Europa League. At this moment started a new path that led them to the final of May 15 against Benfica. In just one year, the team chaired by Roman Abramovich played his second consecutive European final. Fernando Torres began the conquest with his goal in the final and Ivanovic in the last minutes of the game scored the goal that would give the first European League to the English.

Although proclaimed champion, Rafa Benitez left the bench to begin the second stage of José Mourinho at the helm of Chelsea. The Portuguese met again with Pep Guardiola in the final of the European Supercup. A confrontation that began in Spain and moved to the Eden Arena in Prague. Bayern against Chelsea. The last European final of Chelsea did not end as expected, Lukaku missed the last penalty of the penalty shoot-out that would give the victory to the Germans. Since then, the club has gone through several ups and downs in Europe until the arrival of Sarri who has returned the club to the top. His next victim is already waiting in Baku.
