Arsenal vs Sporting Lisbon MatchGains Match Preview, Soccer Prediction, and Betting Tips
Arsenal earned a 1-1 draw against Liverpool at home on Saturday to keep their unbeaten run that has stretched to 14 games now going.
The Gunners showed in that game that they now have the mentality to compete with the very best of teams in the English top flight. They have also been perfect in Europe and they would be looking to seal their passage into the next round of the Europa League in this game.
They beat Sporting 1-0 a fortnight ago in Lisbon and they should complete the job here. The Gunners have maximum 9 points so far after also beating Vorskla and Qarabag as well.
Sporting Lisbon are looking for revenge when they visit the Emirates Stadium for this game. The Portuguese side were supposed to be the team that would finally beat Arsenal when they met in Portugal two weeks back, but a late Dani Welbeck goal separated them, and they would be looking to get revenge here.
They have won their other two group games against Vorskla and Qarabag, but they know that losing here again could make one of those teams catch up with them even though they are expected to win their other two remaining matches.
