Our prediction for this Europa League match:
Thanks to a 3-1 win over Valencia Arsenal moved one step closer to booking their place in the Europa League final. The Gunners proved their worth in the come-from-behind triumph over los Che, but their job is only half done. Unai Emery’s troops are likely to adopt a cautious approach in Thursday’s football game, but they face a difficult task against the La Liga side.
A man to watch in the away team will be Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who has netted 20 goals in the Premier League so far this season. Valencia, on the other hand, have no other choice but to go all-out attack in the second leg. It is well known that los Che are a real force to be reckoned with at home, but overcoming a two-goal deficit is easier said than done. Anyhow, we believe that home win should be considered as Valencia impressed in a 6-2 win over Huesca at the weekend.
Highlighted Player (Daniel Wass):
Daniel Wass is a Danish footballer who plays for La Liga side Celta Vigo as a winger. The Denmark international was born in Gladsaxe on May 31, 1989 and he started his youth career at BK Avarta at the age of six.
Eleven years later (2006) he moved to Brondby and he made his senior debut for the club in the 2007/2008 season. Wass played for the Danish club until 2011, when he moved to Benfica on a five-year deal, but he was immediately sent on loan to French club Evian. After making 29 appearances for les Roses, the pacey winger moved to Spain, signing a five-year contract with the La Liga club.
That proved to be the most significant decision of his career as he impressed in the 2015/2016 Primera division campaign with Os Celeste, making six assists for his teammates, while scoring two goals in the process. Over the years Wass has established himself as an irreplaceable first-team regular at Celta and it is well known that he made it to the Europa League semis with the Galician outfit in the 2016/2017 season.abc
Highlighted Team (Arsenal):
Arsenal are regarded as one of the best English teams. The Gunners have won 12 FA Cup trophies, 13 league titles and two League Cups, but they have yet to lift the Champions League trophy. Arsene Wenger’s team were on the verge of beating Barcelona in the Champions League final back in 2006, but they eventually failed to win the prestigious title.
Arsenal used to play their homes at Highbury, but in 2006 they moved to the Emirates Stadium. The capacity of the stadium is 60,260. The Gunners won their last Premier League trophy back in 2004, with the capital club going through the season without a single loss. The likes of Thierry Henry, Denis Bergkamp and Robert Pires were part of the team back then, but Arsenal have not won the league trophy ever since.
Arsenal was founded by Woolwich munitions workers as Dial Square back in 1886. It is well known that Tottenham Hotspur are Arsenal’s fiercest rivals and there have always been fireworks when the two local rivals meet in the North London derby.
