Arsenal Prediction – Can Arsenal continue recent solid run?

Thursday night’s hosts bring a 6-match unbeaten sequence in all competitions into this Matchday 2 clash with Belgian side, Standard Liege, which began with a recent fightback against North London rivals, Tottenham, in their local derby.

Arsenal found themselves 2-0 down to Spurs but rescued a point as they clawed their way back into the match, and it’s this comeback that has started this recent unbeaten run which also includes a 3-0 win away at Eintracht Frankfurt on Matchday 1 of the Europa League along with a Premier League 3-2 win over Aston Villa and a crushing 5-0 victory over Nottingham Forest in the Championship.

It’s a sign of the times that has seen Arsenal drop down in the pecking order of the Premier League which has resulted in their participation of the second tier European competition, the Europa League, but they possess a good record in this competition in recent times as they’ve won 6 of their last 7 matches overall.

Having also won 8 of their last 10 home ties in the Europa League (with 7 of these wins also covering the -1 asian line), Arsenal look a tough prospect for Belgian visitors, Standard Liege, ahead of this clash on Thursday night.

Standard Liege Prediction – Can Standard Liege hold onto 2nd spot?

The visitors also bring a promising set of results into this Matchday 2 clash in England’s capital as they’ve won 4 of their last 5 matches in all competitions, including a valuable 2-0 home win over Portuguese outfit, Vitoria Guimaraes, on Matchday 1.

Overall results away from home in recent times have seen Standard Liege pick up just 3 wins out of their last 9 away matches in all competitions, while their number of victories on the road in the Europa League have dwindled down to just 2 out of their last 14 matches on their travels.

These wins were recorded at Bosnia-Herzegovina side, Zeljeznicar (in 2015) and a 3-0 win at Greek side, Panathinaikos (2016), but they’ve subsequently gone 4 Europa League ties without a win.

Perhaps more pivotal is the fact that Standard Liege have kept just 3 clean sheets from these last 14 ties away from home, and their defence is likely to receive a stern examination at the Emirates Stadium on Thursday night.


Key-Facts – Arsenal v Standard Liege

  • Arsenal have won 6 of their last 7 matches overall in the Europa League
  • Arsenal have also won 8 of their last 10 home ties in the competition
  • Standard Liege have won just 2 of their last 14 away ties in the Europa League


Betting Tips Verdict

Arsenal won the previous two legs against tonight’s opponents, Standard Liege, admittedly 10 years ago, but the hosts should record another comfortable win here.
