Sporting CP vs Arsenal
UEFA Europa League
Date: Thursday, 25th October 2018
Kick-off at 17.55 UK/ 18.55 CET
Venue: Estádio José Alvalade, Lisbon.
Arsenal has really become a new beast under the stewardship of Unai Emery. Their stumbles at the beginning of the season had the fans worried, but after that he took them on a run of nine consecutive victories in all competitions.
Sporting CP has had a pretty amazing season so far, too. Both in their league campaign as well as European campaign, they have put up impressive performances. The teams sit atop the Group E of Europa League with six points each after match-day two.
An away win against the in-form Sporting CP, and it’s almost sure that Emery will have a long career at the Emirates Stadium.

Sporting CP vs Arsenal Prediction
Arsenal are the favourites to win this match even though they are the away team. Unai Emery is a coach who has won the Europa League title three times in a row, and trust me when I say this – He knows how to get through difficult on-the-road ties.
The teams have been scoring for fun and the trend will likely continue this Thursday too. Sporting CP has two goals each in all of their last four games. Their frontline has really fell into the groove in terms of scoring.
Expect a match where Arsenal most probably would win, or at least walk away with a point. There’s no scenario in which they would just toss away their ongoing streak. Expect a lot of goals to be scored.
