Arsenal - Slavia Prague

UEFA Europa League
Asian Handicap
Pick: Arsenal -0.75
Odds: 1.68
Stake: 1

Match date: 08/04/2021

Arsenal welcomes Slavia Prague at Emirates in the first leg of the UEFA Europa League quarter-finals. Maybe this is the first or second time this season that I back Arsenal to win a match. Their season has been very bad so far. In Premier League they sit at 10th place and have lost 12 of 30 matches and they have been eliminated from all domestic competitions. The only thing to play for is the Europa League and this is their only remaining possibility to achieve something and play in Europe next year.

In fact Arsenal has enjoyed a good Europa League campaign however. They have won eight of their ten matches in this season's competition and, despite a 1-0 loss to Olympiakos in the second leg of their round of 16 tie, have scored a tournament-high 27 goals.

On the other hand we have Slavia Prague, a team that has been dominating in domestic league and are doing great also in Europe. They already eliminated two British teams Leicester and Rangers. Personally I think that over two legs Slavia has decent chances to cause another upset and eliminate Arsenal, but today in this first leg I see Arsenal as more favorite to win.

The reason I am backing Arsenal to win this first tie is the situation with the important missings players that Slavia has. Whole defensive department is injured or banned. Gk Kolar still injured from the match against Rangers and inexperienced 18 years old Vagner is expected to replace him and main defenders Kudela, Hovorka and Deli also missing.

With all those absences in the back I think Arsenal has good chances to take advantage and score. As I mentioned this is the only competition where they can achieve something important and I expect them to be fully concentrated and not screw up their last possibility. Arsenal welcomes back their captain Xhaka and Saka, while Tierney is out alongside David Luiz.

To sum up odds are not great, but fair and realistic and due to the circumstances of this match I feel backing Arsenal tonight. Home factor and opponents absences in the back should favour Arsenal in this first leg.
