ARSENAL vs SPORTING – PREMIUM PICK
The reverse leg ended 2-2. Our post-match analyst suggests the scoreline was about right. For the record, the xG (expected goals) ended 2.38 to 2.22 in favor of Sporting CP.
While Arsenal went home with a draw, their 2nd-goal was a fortunate deflection. Nevertheless, Arteta’s men created enough chances, and the same comment applies to the Portuguese outfit. As previously mentioned, the draw was justified.
At the weekend, Arsenal won their Premier League match in Fulham 0-3. As it stands, with 11 matches remaining, the Gunners top the table by five points. However, they still need to play Manchester City away, and the likes of Liverpool, Chelsea, and Newcastle await.
With the priority being the Premier League, Arteta will continue to make changes for the Europa League. The biggest beneficiary is goalkeeper Matt Turner, and he’s sure to start again tonight.
We expect 3-4 changes in the outfield, with Gabriel Jesus being one consideration. Other players in contention include Kieran Tierney, Jorginho, Rob Holding, and Emile Smith Rowe. Arsenal is without long-term-injured Mohamed Elneny and Eddie Nketiah is the other absentee!
Meanwhile, Sporting CP will need to make at least two changes. Both Morita and Sebastian Coates are serving a one-match ban for the accumulation of yellow cards. Both Hector Bellerin and Daniel Braganca remain sidelined by injuries. On a brighter note, Manuel Ugarte is back from the same.
By beating Boavista at the weekend, the visitors made it four successive league wins. Nevertheless, Amorin’s men are just 4th in the table, with a 15-point deficit to Benfica.
In conclusion, Sporting had their chance in the home match! The visitors are without their skipper tonight, and they are not particularly good on the road. While Arteta is prioritizing the league title, the Gunners have plenty of squad depth.
