Benfica – Arsenal : Preview & Prediction
By finishing in second place in their group behind Rangers, Benfica Lisbon has seriously complicated the task for the rest of the Europa League. For the round of 16 of the European competition, the Lisbon club finds Arsenal. A meeting that promises to be far from easy for the current fourth in La Liga NOS. Jorge Jesus’ men can still have great ambitions against the Gunners. Having lost only one of their last seven meetings in all competitions, the Portuguese club expect to stay in the game before the return leg. While the game will take place in Rome, Arsenal have won only one of their last four games and are only tenth in the English league. Against the Gunners far from being at the level this season, Benfica has all the cards in hand to hang something.
