San Siro will be staging the final for the fourth time, the previous occasion being in 2001 when Bayern Munich beat Valencia on penalties after a 1-1 draw.

It also staged the 1965 final between Inter Milan and Benfica and the 1970 final between Feyenoord and Celtic.

The 2016 Europa League final will be held at the St Jakob-Park in Basel, UEFA added.
