Arsenal are strong betting favourites to overcome Benfica on Thursday night although the bottom line is that they only managed a 1-1 draw at a neutral ground last week.

Are Arsenal Too Short to Win Europa League Clash?

The Gunners and their Portuguese opponents will now meet at the Karaiskakis Stadium and we might once again see another even game, with Pizzi opening the scoring in the first leg encounter from the penalty spot before this was swiftly cancelled out by Bukayo Saka.

Therefore, we’re not sure that the north London side should be trading at such short odds for this clash and our tip is for Benfica to triumph on the Asian Handicap, with our bet winning if the game ends all square or the ‘visitors’ claim a win.

Arsenal were given the run around by Manchester City on Sunday and might struggle to make a positive impression on the game against a side who are used to winning games.

Back Benfica on the Asian Handicap Market

Our prediction is that the game will end in a draw or a win for Benfica, with a goalless draw actually suiting the Gunners considering that they’re in possession of an away goal and therefore don’t have to go out with too much ambition.

Arteta will want to try and take the tie right away from their opponents although it might be asking too much to keep a clean sheet and this is a Europa League tie that could once again finish in a 1-1 scoreline which means extra-time and potentially penalties.
