Arsenal hosts Sporting Lisboa at the Emirates Stadium in a second leg from the Europa League 1/8-finals. Please stay with us and our only winning football predictions for tomorrow.
The tie is still open after a 2-2 draw in the first leg in Portugal. It was an exciting game at the Estadio Jose Alvalade. Saliba put Arsenal ahead in the scoreline but Goncalo Inacio and Paulinho turned the game around for Sporting. It was Sporting’s Hidemasa Morita who had the bad luck to score himself an own goal.
Arsenal are leaders in the Premier League and probably one of the best English teams at the moment. The Gunners have reached a peak performance under the manager Mikel Arteta. Their main priority remains winning the title in England, but surely they will try to win an European trophy as well.
Arsenal are expected to control the game against Sporting at the Emirates. They are a team which loves to play with the ball. Arteta managed to build a technical team which distributes the ball in the best way possible. That’s Sporting’s main goal for the second leg – to find a way to stop Arsenal from improvising on the pitch.
Sporting Lisboa have the tools to hurt Arsenal. Trincao and Marcus Edwards are among the most dangerous players in the squad while Paulinho is the main striker who will spend time in Arsenal’s penalty area. The Gunners are going to be very careful about him – he’s a player who already scored a goal in the first leg.
That’s our only winning football predictions for tomorrow for the Europa League game between Arsenal and Sporting Lisboa. Surely the English team can be called a favorite here, but let us remind you that it’s 2-2 after the first leg. The Portuguese squad is still hoping for qualification, but they need to play a very good game at the Emirates.
