Arsenal vs Vitoria Guimaraes Preview
Arsenal host Vitoria Guimaraes for their Europa League clash as Group F pace-setters after two convincing displays against Eintracht Frankfurt (0-3) and Standard Liege (4-0), where they bagged a total of seven goals and conceded none. Unai Emery surely hopes to build on such performances and his men should be motivated to impress.
Still, Gunners have seen Sheffield United (1-0) end their eight-match unbeaten streak in an underwhelming game on Monday, with harsh criticism from fans and pundits alike. They will now need to recuperate quickly and connect their fifth consecutive win at Emirates since sharing the spoils in a thriller 2-2 draw against Tottenham back in September.
Vitoria Guimaraes will have to search for an upset and capitalize on the shaken atmosphere, but they’ve seen two losses of their own in October. Eintracht Frankfurt snatched all three points in a 0-1 win in Guimaraes and they returned from the International break with an even more disappointing loss to Sintra in Taca de Portugal (on penalties after a 1-1 draw).
Ivo Vieira thus has to look for a quick fix and doing so against the Premier League rivals will be no easy task. They have struggled for goalscoring consistency and netted just two goals in four games but they have ground to build on defensively, which will have the fans hoping for a wonder as well.
We do feel they will not be able to make it happen and we will now rather stick with Arsenal to bag a win to Nil, which comes at Evens with William Hill and looks like the best approach to the fixture with the Gunners’ solid defensive tally at this ground.
We’ve seen Alexandre Lacazette return to the pitch after a long break on Monday and we expect him in the lineup midway through the week as he regains fitness. We hope he’ll be hungry for goals and we’ll now back him to score anytime at 10/11 with bet365, which feels like great value.
