Arsenal – Sporting : Preview & Prediction
Arsenal made a clear round in this phase of Europa League pools with 3 wins against FC Vorskla Poltava (4-2), Qarabag (3-0) and Sporting CP (1-0). The London club, which holds the best attack of the group (8 goals) and the best defense (2 goals), has a comfortable lead of 6 points on the 3rd to 3 days of the end of this mini championship. Suffice to say that a new success on the Portuguese club would open the doors of the 1/16 finals. Qualified in the League Cup after their victory over Blackpool (2-1) on October 31, Arsenal held off Liverpool (1-1) this Saturday at the Emirates Stadium. A good preparation for the reception of the Sporting CP which was made out of the League Cup at home against Estoril (1-2) before signing a short and difficult success in Santa Clara (2-1). The current third Liga Sagrès is not at the best currently with 2 defeats on his last 4 outings and unconvincing victories. The Sporting CP can grill a joker in England since he has three lengths ahead of FC Vorskla Poltava he had beaten in Ukraine (2-1) and he will receive on the last day.
Arsenal had won 1 goal to 0 on the way to Portugal.
Arsenal dominates this group E with 3 successes in as many days.
The Gunners are unbeaten since August 18, 2018!
Arsenal has just scored 12 wins and 2 draws in its last 14 outings.
Sporting CP has 2 losses in its last 4 meetings.
In 8 C3 matches at Emirates Stadium, Arsenal have lost only once.
Arsenal, which is full of control this season under the leadership of Unai Emery, could qualify from Thursday for the 1/16 round of the Europa League in case of victory before Sporting CP.
