Watford vs Arsenal Prediction & Betting tips
On Monday evening, Arsenal will play an away match on Vicarage Road. The opponent of The Gunners is Watford, who last year placed himself nicely in the final of the FA Cup.
For Watford, it is nevertheless a season to remember. That’s not because Javi Gracia’s formation is performing so well in the Premier League, but it’s because Watford qualified for the FA Cup final last Sunday. In the semi-final, which was played at Wembley, Watford appeared to be eliminated by Wolverhampton. Watford looked eleven minutes before the final whistle, trailing 0-2. Nevertheless, The Hornets showed resilience and Deulofeu took care of the tying run, after which Troy Deeney dragged an extension out of the fire for Watford from eleven meters. In that extension, Deulofeu was once again accurate for The Hornets and because of the Spaniard’s goal, Watford is in the FA Cup final for the first time since 1984.
Manchester City is the opponent in the final. On May 18, that game will only be scheduled and as a result, Watford will be able to focus on the Premier League in the coming period. Watford is tenth in the Premier League and wants to finish in the left row. Normally, The Hornets should succeed. Incidentally, seventh place is also not out of sight for Watford, which although under Leicester City, Wolverhampton and Everton, has played fewer matches.
It is the weeks in which the prizes are distributed. They realize that all too well at Arsenal. The Gunners can no longer become champions in the Premier League, but Arsenal will also consider a top four ranking in the Premier League as a prize. In addition, Arsenal can still win the Europa League and The Gunners are, together with Chelsea, the top favorite for winning the European club tournament. Certainly now that Arsenal was 2-0 too strong for Napoli last Thursday, making The Gunners almost certain of a semi-final position in the Europa League.
At the Emirates Stadium, Aaron Ramsey was early on Thursday evening accurate and in the 25th minute a touched shot by Lucas Torreira made sure that they had a lot of confidence with Arsenal in the return match of Thursday evening. First of all the final game at Watford is on the program and at Arsenal the results in away games are very disappointing in recent months: The Gunners won only two of the last twelve games outside of their own Emirates. Arsenal lost 1-0 to Everton last weekend and Arsenal will not receive the points as a gift when they visit Watford.
