On March 16, Emirates Stadium (London) will host the second leg of the 1/8 finals of the Europa League, in which Arsenal will compete with Sporting Lisbon. The battle will start at 21:00 CET.

Arsenal


The club has got an obvious priority – the English Premier League. And there is no wonder about that: the team is struggling for the title, and, it goes without saying that Mikel Arteta and his wards will hold on with all their might to use the unexpected chance. Taking into account the latest matches, the necessary energy is not so numerous. There is no doubt that it was possible to demonstrate the champion character, achieving the victories as in the battles with Aston Villa and Bournemouth, but the fans are eager to see something more like a 4-0 success in the match against Everton or the domination like in the game with Fulham. In the context of such a struggle for the title, it was more than curious what the Spanish manager would decide about the Europa League. As a result, the “one-and-a-half” team achieved a quite strategically satisfactory 2-2 draw in Portugal.

Sporting Lisbon


The club can just afford to appoint the Europa League as its main spring goal. Indeed, the situation in the Primeira is actually a failure – it will be difficult to compete with Braga, which has galloped far ahead, even for the 3rd place. But it goes without saying that not everything is OK at the international arena. This time, Ruben Amorim’s wards did not overcome the group stage, finishing only in the 3rd place due to a home 1-2 misfire in the match against the direct rival, Eintracht, in the last round. Having appeared in the Europa League, “the Lions” made a lot of troubles for themselves there – they were not able to beat Midtjylland at the home arena. However, the team got a confident 4-0 success in Denmark and continued its European way. Speaking about the British opponent, however, it will be necessary at least not to lose in the away match after a draw in the first one.

The statistics of head-to-head matches


The teams met each other in the Europa League at the group stage in 2018. Then, 180 minutes resulted in the only goal of Arsenal in the away battle.

Predictions


Bookmakers are sure about the victory of Arsenal. Nevertheless, taking into account the fact that the motivation of the favourite is rather controversial, it is worth betting on “total: over 2.5” (odd: 1.7).
