Arsenal Preview – Can Arsenal progress?

Arsenal will head into this 2nd leg clash at the Stadio Georgios Karaiskáki with the scores level and this tie evenly poised at 1-1 after last week’s draw with Benfica, and the Premier League side will be hoping that they can turn around their fortunes in this encounter.

The Gunners have registered just one win out of their last six matches in all competitions which came in the shape of a 4-2 home win over Leeds United but defeats against Wolves, Aston Villa and Manchester City suggest Arsenal still need to do a professional job on Thursday night.

Form on the Europa League stage though has been solid as Arsenal have won six of their last seven ties and have lost just two of their last 15 ties overall, while also winning their last three ties at home on the trot against Dundalk, Molde and Rapid Vienna.

Our betting suggestion:

Benfica Preview – Can Benfica gain win on road?

Benfica were held to a third consecutive draw in all competitions on the weekend by Farense in a disappointing 0-0 stalemate which followed a 1-1 draw in the 1st leg in Rome and Benfica may find themselves up against it here as they’ve managed to win just three of their last 11 matches in all competitions.

Taca de Portugal cup wins against Belenenses and Estoril have been complemented by a Primeira Liga win over Famalicao while on the Europa League front the Portuguese outfit are unbeaten in their last eight ties.

However, Benfica have won only three of these eight with two of the three victories being record at home, while away from home, Benfica have picked up just one win from their last six away ties.
