Hazard’s Brace Leads Chelsea to Victory in Europa League Final

Eden Hazard scored two second-half goals to lead Chelsea to a 4-1 win over Arsenal in the Europa League final played in front of a subdued crowd in Baku, Azerbaijan.

The victory marked what is expected to be the final game in a Chelsea uniform for Hazard, as he’s expected to move to Real Madrid this summer.

Former Arsenal striker Oliver Giroud and Pedro also scored goals for Chelsea.

The Gunners seemed to get the better of the play in the first-half but couldn’t convert and the match was tied 0-0 at the half.

Chelsea’s Giroud opened the game’s scoring in the 49th minute and the Blues tallied two more goals before Arsenal finally put one on the board in the 69th minute.
