Valencia vs Arsenal Live Europa League Semi-Final match on Thursday, 9th May 2019, Kick-off at 20.00 UK/ 21.00 CET and Venue: Estadio de Mestalla (Valencia).
It seems extremely unlikely that Arsenal will finish in the top four places and their only hope of participating in the Champions League next season is to win the European title. Coach Unai Emery needs something to show at the end of the season, and since this guy is a specialist in lifting the so-called crown, he will definitely look for it.
Valencia must also face a difficult task to claim a place among the first four places in the Spanish league.But their course in this tournament will be more difficult given the three goals conceded in the first leg. Their only ray of hope is the outside goal they scored on the board.
Valencia vs Arsenal: head to head (h2h)
- Valencia failed to give a single blow to the team.
- Two of the last three games have scored goals on both sides.
- Valencia has a record of 100% of the profits in this place.
- Local teams have scored two or more goals in the last three games.
Valencia vs Arsenal: Prediction
Valencia must overcome a deficit of two goals, but she is confident of having scored a goal away.
With the advantage of being at home, the team will definitely play against the visiting Gunners. Arsenal did not win in 12 of their last 17 away games and in four of their last five games. They also lost three of their last five games and conceded three or more goals in those three games.
It is important to note that Valencia has a 100% h2h victory record at home and, with the exception of a draw, every h2h match ends with a home win.
Valencia is another beast at home, and they have been undefeated in 20 of their last 21 home games. They have scored two or more goals in five of their last seven games against their home crowd. In line with the trend, Valencia should register a victory on Thursday.
But, as mentioned above, Arsenal considers this tournament as the best option to participate in the next season of CL. They will be encouraged by the 3-1 victory in the first leg and by the advantage of two goals.
Given that Valencia will be forced to attack, the experienced Unai Emery will find a way to score at least one goal, and thus cancel the advantage of the goal outside of Valencia.
I hope Arsenal will progress, but that Valencia will win the draw. Wait for goals from both sides as well.
Valencia vs Arsenal: Betting Odds
