Arsenal are welcoming Sporting CP
We are heading to the Emirates Stadium in London, where Arsenal are welcoming Sporting CP in a match from Group E of Europa League. Let’s take a look at this clash in our predictions football 1×2.
We won’t surprise you by telling you that Arsenal are leading this group with a perfect record of 9 points from 3 games played. Right now the Gunners are taking this competition very seriously, which is not surprising – their manager is Unai Emery, who have won Europa League three times in his career.
In their three games played so far, Arsenal scored 8 goals and conceded just 2. The Londoners didn’t face any problems in their matches so far. Clearly they are going to win this group. Right now they have 3 points advantage in front of Sporting, so they will try to make it 6 points and basically win the group.
These two sides met two weeks ago in Lisboa, when Arsenal won the match with 1-0, thanks to a winning goal scored by Danny Welbeck. In this way the Gunners clearly stated that they are the best team in this group and almost surely they are going to win it.
In the Premier League Arsenal are currently 5th in the standings, but just one point behind the 4th Tottenham. Arsenal started their campaign with two consecutive losses, but now they are unbeaten in 9 consecutive games in the league. It looks like Emery found the right touch for the team.
Meanwhile Sporting are 3rd in the Portuguese Primeira Liga. They are moving pretty well, having some chances to attack the first place. But they will think about it later, because now it’s Europa League on their plate.
These are our predictions football 1×2 for the Europa League clash between Arsenal and Sporting CP.
