It’s semifinal time in the Europa League, and the game that holds Premier League interest sees Arsenal host Atletico Madrid.
A lot has changed at the Gunners since the last round. Veteran manager Arsene Wenger has announced his departure at the end of the season and the players will be keen to reward him with an European trophy and thus qualification for the club into the Champions League next season.
However, it won’t be easy. This may be the first time these two sides have met in European competition, but Atletico have reached the semifinals of this tournament twice before, making it through to the final on both occasions.
All that said, it’s Arsenal who have shown the better form of late, particularly at the Emirates. Atletico are known as a strong defensive side and Arsenal’s forward line may find space hard to find. We’ll take a punt on Arsenal’s defender Nacho Monreal popping up with a surprise goal at a hefty price.
Recommendation: Monreal to score anytime, 1 pt, at 12/1, Unibet
