Atletico Madrid vs Arsenal Prediction 3 May 2018

Tournament: Europa League
Location: Estadio Wanda Metropolitano
Match date: 03.05.2018 at 20:05

On May 3 2018 at 20:05 in the upcoming match of the UEFA Europa League semifinal second leg at the Estadio Wanda Metropolitano in Madrid the local Atletico will play against Arsenal.

Arsenal only have one chances to make it to the Champions League in the next season through the victory in the Europa League. In the first leg game the teams drew 1:1 and this result leaves the variety of results for both teams.

Atletico have their national championship as a priority as they are trying to finish it above their rivals Real Madrid as they have chances to do it. On the other hand, they have already secured their place in the Champions League for the next season as they can’t go down lower than the third place. Consequently, the Europa League is only their way to win the trophy which, of course, it’s a good motivation but definitely less than the motivation of the Gunners. We must also remind you that Diego Someone was disqualified during the previous match. They also have three important defense players missing and it will definitely influence the reliability of their defense.

It seems to us that the conditions of Atletico got much worse by the end of the season as they only won once in the latest four games and they only did it with one goal difference. They didn’t manage too outplay Betis at home and lost to Real Sociedad with a big 0:3 score. They have already met two teams of the level of Arsenal in the year 2018 and in those games they lost to Sevilla 1:2 in the Copa del Rey and outplayed Valencia 1:0 in the national championship.

As for Arsenal, they seem to be able to take the pitch and the ball under control and make the Spanish play their game this time. Of course, we know that Arsenal look rather poor in the away matches as they only won three times in their 17 EPL away games. Yet, in the year 2018 they didn’t lost many games and it they did it, it was only against the top teams of the league. Moreover, all of their main squad played will be able to play in the upcoming match as there are only the second squad players injured.

In the first leg game Arsenal had a big advantage in possession (72%) and they committed five times as many attempts as Atletico did which influenced the disqualification of the Atletico player.

Considering all of the facts we have already mentioned, we really don’t think that it’s going to be an easy win for Atletico. It seems to us that Arsenal have their resources to achieve a good result this time.
