Football Predictions 

Arsenal face Sporting CP at the Emirates on Thursday in the return leg of the Europa League last 16. The Gunners forced a 2-2 in Lisbon last week and will take the draw as an advantage as they feature at home. William Saliba gave the Gunners an early lead before his effort was cancelled out by Gonzalo Inacio. In the second half, Paulinho gave the hosts the lead but Xhaka’s effort, deflected by Morita saw the ball kiss the back of the net and end the match in a 2-2. 

The Gunners were in flames over the weekend as they dominated Fulham in the first half and managed to thrash Fulham 3-0. Goals from Gabriel, Martinelli and also Martin Odegaard with Trossard providing a hat trick of assists. 

Ahead of the clash, Morita and defender Sebastian Coates will miss the second leg due to yellow card suspensions, a huge blow for the visitors. 

For Arsenal, they will have firepower in the attack with Gabriel Jesus now back from injury and he featured over the weekend against Fulham. 

Sporting made it seven matches without a loss in  a row as they beat Boavista 3-0 in the domestic league to pile pressure on the third-placed Braga. 

Verdict 

It was a tight first leg between the two sides, but Mikel Arteta’s side will be confident they can secure a win here in front of their home fans.

Prediction – Arsenal 2-0 Sporting CP 

Anytime goalscorer 

Bukayo Saka – The England international failed to score in their away trip to Fulham but was fully involved as the Gunners ran riot. We are baking Saka to see the back on the net on Thursday. 

Real Betis vs Man United 

Man United got the job done last week at Old Trafford with a convincing 4-1 victory over Real Betis in the first leg of the last 16. However, the Red Devils suffered a setback over the weekend as they were held to a barren draw by Southampton at home, a game that saw them finish with ten men following Casemiro’s red card. 

In the Europa League this season, United have won all but one of their games away from home, winning three and drawing one.

Despite this game being away from home, it should still be a win for United.

Prediction – Real Betis 1-2 Man United
