Arsenal vs Atl. Madrid Prediction & Betting tips
This Thursday will also be played the first leg of the UEFA Europa League semi-final, and one of the most entertaining games is what awaits us at the Emirates Stadium in London, when Arsenal goes out to play the season against an always complicated Spanish box how is Atlético de Madrid.
Those led by Arsene Wenger arrive motivated after their 4-1 win over West Ham United in their last Premier League game but it must be said that this matters very little since the Gunners have decided to qualify for UEFA Champions League and the only that can take him to that competition is to win the UEFA Europa League, so this Thursday he goes for all in search of that victory that allows him to reach with confidence for the return in Madrid.
Arsenal suffered in the previous round, although the Gunners won at home 4-1 to CSKA Moscow, in the return the Russian box did not put it simple, to the point that they were up by 2-0 and everything makes presage that it was coming a nightmare to the English box every time one more goal and it was the Russian team who stayed with the series, but happily in the final part of the match appeared Welbeck and Ramsey to put the 2-2 final and thus win the series with a global 6-3.
For this game Wenger currently has the doubts of Mesut Ozil and Wilshere who will be waiting until minutes before the game to know if they will be of the game, but who can not play is forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang because he has already played for Dortmund in the European Champions League.
Atlético de Madrid:
For its part, it can be said that those led by the Argentine Diego Simeone come with some relaxation to this commitment, and that the “mattress” nobody takes away the possibility of playing the UEFA Champions League for next season because it will finish within the first four classified in the League.
Like the English side, the Spanish team suffered to leave the Portuguese side of Sporting Lisbon on the road, so Atlético de Madrid won 2-0 at home and lost to Portugal 1-0 in a game that was put in favor of Sporting in the first half hour and happily the mattress could hold the last 70 minutes of commitment.
For this game Simeone will not be able to count on striker Diego Costa who is injured.
These teams have not been confronted by any official game, and their only direct confrontation was in a friendly played in the Emirates in 2009, where the triumph was for Arsenal 2-1.
