Vitoria Guimaraes vs Arsenal Match Preview

Arsenal manager Unai Emery’s job is reported to be on the line – and yet he could take his team through to the Europa League knockout stage as early as this Wednesday.

Emery is under fire with the Gunners having won only one of their last five matches, ironically the reverse fixture to this one in which they needed two brilliant free-kicks from Nicolas Pepe in the last 10 minutes to overturn a deficit to Vitoria Guimaraes and prevail 3-2.

The Spaniard has had plenty to cope with this season, especially regarding Granit Xhaka, Mesut Ozil and Sead Kolasinac and the issues that have affected them psychologically. But essentially, Arsenal have improved little if at all under Emery, especially defensively, and his team selections frequently bewilder with players left out in the cold for no apparent reason.

Still, Arsenal have won three out of three in Europa League Group F and if they collect more points this week than third-placed Standard Liege do at home to Eintracht Frankfurt, it will secure their place in the last 32 with two games to spare.

Vitoria Guimaraes, meanwhile, have lost all three matches so far despite that encouraging display at the Emirates Stadium and are hosting this game on Wednesday afternoon because their relative neighbours Braga are at home on Thursday evening, while UEFA do not like Europa League games being played at the same time as Champions League fixtures.

With Jose Mourinho being linked with his job, Emery may not be able to stick around long enough to take Arsenal back to the Europa League Final, in which they lost to Chelsea last season, but can at least maintain this season’s 100% record in the competition with victory in his rumoured successor’s homeland.
