Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic is chasing Europa League glory.

Ivanovic was banned for last year's Champions League final win over Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena.

But the Serb, 29, hopes to feature in the Amsterdam final against Benfica on May 15.

He said: "It will be like my own Champions League final.

"The match in Munich was the hardest game I've ever watched.

"This time I hope to play."
