The first leg ended 1-0 for the ”yellow and blacks”, in a match full of chances in which Adeyemi’s brilliant counterattack made the difference in the second half.

Prediction: 3-0

Benfica faces Brugges on Tuesday, March 7 for the second leg of the round of 16 of the Champions League. The Portuguese are one-step away from the quarterfinals thanks to the 2-0 first-leg success signed in the second half by Joao Mario and Neres.

Sporting Lisbon vs Arsenal | Europa League

09/03/2023 17:45

Prediction: 0-1

The first leg of the round of 16 of the Europa League between Sporting Lisbon and Arsenal is a fascinating challenge. The Portuguese are out of the fight for the title and the Champions League in the league and are betting everything on the continental competition, where they overcame the play-off round by eliminating Midtjylland (1-1 and 4-0), to straighten out the season. Arsenal, on the other hand, are first in the Premier League but have a long squad capable of traveling at full capacity on both fronts, as demonstrated by the group stage of this Europa League, where they progressed from first place by winning five of six matches.

Sporting Lisbon will go into the match without the suspended Ugarte and the injured Braganca. Many of Portugal’s hopes of progressing are pinned on Pedro Goncalves, who scored sixteen goals this season, including four in his last four games and two in the match against Midtjylland. Trossard, Elneny, and Nketiah are out of action at Arsenal, while Gabriel Jesus could return after three months’ absence. At most, the Brazilian will be able to go on the bench, giving way as center forward to the adapted Martinelli, who has two goals in his last three games. Obviously, Saka will start with three goals and one assist in his last five appearances.

  • Away, Arsenal have won seven of their last nine games.
  • The Gunners have won five out of six games in the Europa League.
  • There were four consecutive victories for the Londoners before this match.
  • In their last five home games, Sporting have lost twice to Porto and drawn with Midtjylland.
  • Screaming attack for Arsenal, who scored 12 goals in the last four games.

Positive period for Betis, who stopped Real Madrid 0-0 in the last championship and in the previous three Liga wins, 3-2 with Elche and Almeria and 2-1 with Valladolid.
