Premier League side, Arsenal take on Portuguese side, Benfica today in the UEFA Europa League round of 32 second leg today at the Stadio Georgios Karaiskaki in Greece by 6:55pm today.
The both sides played out a 1-1 draw the last time out, and while it may seem like Arsenal have the advantage, one may be advised to be careful in predicting so.
But then, both sides have not had the perfect season. While Arsenal have found themselves languishing in the mid-table, currently in 11th position in the league; Benfica have also found themselves drifting.
Benfica themselves, languish in 4th position, 15 points off the league leaders Sporting and have not lost their past five games in all competitions, but they have won only two (drawing three), but their last win came as far as 11th February.
It could be a bold one here, but an Arsenal win is the best bet. The odds might even be huge considering the fact that Arsenal have had only one win in five games, (drawing one, and losing the other three). But I do not see this Benfica side claiming victory with Thomas Partey being available for Arsenal.
