Hello! Welcome to this year's Capital One Cup Final at Wembley. This is the BBC who will be broadcasting today's match-up between Arsenal and Bradford Park Avenue.
This is the second consecutive Capital One Cup Final that Bradford Park Avenue have appeared in after they won the tournament last season in a 2-0 victory over Manchester City.
But before that, Bradford's opponents today won the competition three times in a row between 2018 and 2021. Arsenal arrive at Wembley today placed in fourth place in the Barclays Premier League.
Both teams had a reasonably quiet January transfer window, Bradford only bought Tornike Maisuradze from Málaga for £3M, meanwhile Arsenal invested in Montpellier's Hassan Akpan for £2.5M and Derby County's Ekrem Cosic for £9.25M.
It's a crushing blow for Arsenal today, though. Their Spanish striker Álvaro Morata is missing today's Final through suspension. Morata is Arsenal's top scorer this season with 14 goals in 25 matches. Morata joins Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Ross Barkley on Luis Enrique's injury list.
On Bradford Park Avenue's side, it is also a big miss for Carmelo Troccoli who misses the Final through a strained knee ligament. The former A.C. Milan winger has been a class act this season for Bradford, scoring 15 and assisting 18 in 24 league games. Avenue's January signing Tornike Maisuradze is ineligible for this match.
Saying that, both teams' lineups have been sent into Lee Probert - today's referee:
Arsenal XI (4-1-2-3 DM Wide):
Simone Scuffet (GK)
Brendan Galloway (C)
Bradford Park Avenue XI (4-4-2):
John Taylor (GK)
Ben Blackmore (C)
C. Kjetil Haug (GK), J. Emmanuel, E. Oikonomou, Kuki, H. Menad, J. Bernat, H. Akpan.
Bradford PA Subs:
E. Cervantes (GK), C. Holmes, R. Cabella, R. Pursehouse, T. Carroll, A. Duncan, S. Walton.
A pair of very menacing lineups there which should set up to be a delight of a football match today. Lee Probert is making his way out with his two linesmen and fourth official, so we will head to our commentators for today's match.
Well yes, two sets of good players out there today. Bradford remain in every single competition they entered this year, with an F.A. Cup Quarter-Final against Yorkshire Amateur to look forward to after this Final, followed up by a Champions League Knockout Round match against Marseille which they have the upper hand in after winning the First Leg 4-2.
Arsenal will also participate in the Champions League, but lost 1-0 in the First Leg to their own French opponents in Paris Saint-Germain. They were knocked out of the F.A. Cup by Stoke in the 3rd Round.
The two colour sets today start with Arsenal's all-black away shirt, meanwhile Bradford Park Avenue don their distinctive green and white hoops.
It's Arsenal to get us underway here at Wembley with Mohamed Messadi - their £40M summer signing from Atlético Madrid. And away we go!
Here's Hector Bellerín with a throw deep into Bradford territory here on the near side. Lloyd nods away but Panek has recovered it for Arsenal. Louis Reed now, Alustiza... Threads it through to Fageraas! John Taylor's parried it away! Thomas Lemar is there!!! GOAL!!!
Arsenal have broken the deadlock just one minute and thirty seconds into the fixture! It's the winger Thomas Lemar with the opener for Arsenal, great passing movement!
Gerardo Fageraas with the free-kick from near the halfway line for Arsenal. There's men looking to rush into the box from this, if the left-winger can reach them. Ian Byrne heads away the cross bravely as Richard Webb wins the second ball. Matthew Fletcher - who plays left-wing in Troccoli's absence today - has received the ball. Here's Dinaburskij at the halfway line now. The Ballon d'Or runner-up is stopped in his tracks by Bellerín.
Fletcher recovers possession for The Stans now. It's been fed to Dinaburskij who plays a long ball out wide to Bradford legend Jack Hallahan on the right wing. Panek has tried to header it clear, it's fallen at Webb's feet though. Webb to Dinaburskij here. Dinaburskij's turned out to his right, he's fed in Matthew Fletcher who's unmarked!!! GOAL!!!
Matthew Fletcher has blasted it past Simone Scuffet for the equaliser here! It's all square in the twentieth minute here!!!
Arsenal get the action underway again from the kick-off. The ball is sprayed across The Gunners back four, from Duarte right over to Bellerín on the other side. It's now in Bradford's half but Arsenal's attack find themselves outnumbered by Avenue's defence here. Thomas Lemar wanders down the right wing with the ball, seemingly going right over into the corner. Montenegro is tracking him all the way... Magnificent challenge by Joan Montenegro as he comes away with the ball, instigating applause all around the arena.
Fletcher has tried to find Jurij Dinaburskij up the left-wing now, it's failed as Bellerín heads away but now the captain Ben Blackmore finds himself in lots of space here. The Australian midfielder has managed to set Dinaburskij free this time with a pass down the left. Passed back to Fletcher. He's spotted Tobias making a darting run forward - great switch of play by Fletcher - the Brazilian right-back is surging forward with the ball at great pace now. Tobias swings a low cross along the six-yard box! Dinaburskij's there to meet it first! Saved! On the rebouuuuund!!! GOAL!!!
It was just two minutes ago that Bradford were losing this match, now they're in front thanks to Fletcher and Dinaburskij!!! It's 2-1 to Avenue!
Half-time at Wembley Stadium here in the Capital One Cup Final. Arsenal find themselves a goal behind Bradford at the break with a lot of work to do from here if they want to win this match.
Jurij Dinaburskij gets the second half underway from kick-off.
Hector Bellerín with the throw-in for Arsenal. Thomas Lemar touches the ball up and sends a light volley back to Bellerín on the touchline. Lemar receives the ball back but Bradford's Ian Byrne clears the ball. Jason Denayer sprays it out wide to Bellerín again. Hector Bellerín now... Crosses the ball in at waist height... Messadi's there! GOAL!!!
Arsenal have drawn level with Bradford! It's their £40M man Mohamed Messadi with the goal and The Gunners are back in with a shout here!
Changes for both teams here. Joshua Emmanuel replaces the hard-working Hector Bellerín for Arsenal. Aldo Ríos makes way for Roger Pursehouse up front for Bradford Park Avenue.
Another change for Bradford Park Avenue here. 33-year-old Rémy Cabella replaces Jack Hallahan on the right-wing. Perhaps Bradford are looking to conserve now, with less pace available on the right wing.
A double substitution for Arsenal here. The central midfield duo in Louis Reed and Miroslav Panek make way for the oncoming Kuki and Hamza Menad. Bradford PA also make a change. Courtney Holmes comes on for Luke Lloyd in defence.
It's the end of normal time here in London. Arsenal and Bradford PA are still level with each other at the end of ninety minutes which means the referee calls for extra-time and penalties if necessary. It's Arsenal 2, Bradford Park Avenue 2.
Arsenal kick off the first half of extra-time with Messadi.
Here's Bradford's second half substitute Rémy Cabella with a free-kick in a nice position to bend a cross in. The Frenchman whips it in with his right boot... It's zipped in, in fact... Dinaburskij has broken free from his marker here... GOAL!!!
Jurij Dinaburskij has put Bradford Park Avenue ahead for the second time with an extra-time header from a fantastic Rémy Cabella cross!!! It's 3-2 in the second minute of extra-time!
It's Arsenal to take the kick-off for the fifth time today now. Menad passes to Lemar. Back to Brendan Galloway who spreads the play to the left hand side with Fageraas. Tobias closes in on his man here... Oh, and that's a bad trip up there... And he's already on a yellow card! Lee Probert calls him over. He's having a word with the young Brazilian there... He's reached for his back pocket! Red Card for Tobias!
So soon after so much joy thanks to Dinaburskij's header, Avenue are deducted to ten men for the remaining 27 minutes of the game! Chabukiani is livid!
Richard Webb on the near side with the throw-in. Bradford are restricting all their men now, Pursehouse receives the ball from Webb inside the area. Galloway turns away his cross into the box and Messadi receives the ball, a last chance here? Kuki dummies the ball for Menad... But Menad wasn't ready! Ian Byrne retrieves possession for Bradford, much to the delight of his supporters. Byrne pumps the ball out to the left for Courtney Holmes to win... FULL-TIME!!!
Bradford Park Avenue have won the Capital One Cup for the second year in a row!!! A highly-entertaining fixture here as Avenue take the spoils, despite going a man down straight after scoring the ultimate match-winner from Jurij Dinaburskij - who is today's Man of the Match thanks to his brace and assist for Fletcher's goal - a real inspiring performance today from the Russian, but an excellent team effort from everyone involved at Bradford Park Avenue!
