The last team to play in a UEFA Cup final at their home stadium was Sporting Clube de Portugal, who lost 3-1 to PFC CSKA Moskva in the 2004/05 decider. However, the last Dutch side to win the UEFA Cup did so at their own stadium, Feyenoord beating Borussia Dortmund 3-2 in Rotterdam in 2001/02.
European champions Chelsea FC are featuring in this competition for the first time since it became the UEFA Europa League, having played only eight games in its predecessor, the UEFA Cup. Of the sides in the round of 32. only debutants Levante UD have played as few games in the two competitons.
The Blues may not have planned to be in this tournament, but Rafael Ben?tez?s side would become the first English club to complete a clean sweep of all the major UEFA club competitions if they win in the final at the Amsterdam ArenA, having won the UEFA Cup Winners? Cup twice (in 1970/71 and 1997/98) and the UEFA Champions League last season.
They would be only the fourth side to have won all three trophies, joining Juventus, AFC Ajax and FC Bayern M?nchen.
Should they win, they would also be the first side to win UEFA?s two top club competitions in reverse order in successive seasons.
