Competition : UEFA Europe League
Time / Date : 22:05h / 3 May 2018
Venue : Estadio Vicente Calderon
Atleti have the advantage here with away goal.Simeone was sent off in last game too and his team followed this with 1:0 win away to Alaves and that make their record in last seven to two wins , three draws and two defeats they can surely perform better.But at home their stats are outstanding Atletico Madrid haven’t lost a home game since a January defeat to Sevilla in the Copa del Rey.
The Gunners have only won two of their last 12 away games in all competitions.Here will be very very hard for Wenger who lose in last game against Mourinho with 2:1.
Sime Vrsaljko (Indirect card suspension), Juanfran (Hamstring Injury), Filipe Luís (Fracture of the fibula)
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (No eligibility), Santi Cazorla (Plantar fascia), Mohamed Elneny (Malleolar injury)
Last week’s 1-1 draw at The Emirates was the first competitive match between these sides, with the only previous meeting being a 2-1 win for Arsenal in a 2009 friendly.
For me, Arsenal blew up the chance to put themselves in front at the Emirates and they are going to pay a heavy price for it at Spain this Thursday. The reasons are clear as the Gunners lost 6 of their last 9 away matches in all competitions. While, Atletico were beaten just once at home in the current campaign combining all competitions.
