Arsenal vs Villarreal: Prediction and Betting Tips

19:00, May 06 2021
Arsenal vs Villarreal prediction for Thursday’s second leg Semi-Final Europa League showdown at the Emirates Stadium. After a 2-1 defeat in the first leg, Arsenal host Villarreal eying Europa League Final berth for the second time. Read on for our free prediction and betting tips.

Can a fully fit Aubameyang lead his team to the Final?

The Gunners scored what could be a very important away goal in Villarreal in the first leg after going down 2-0 in the first half. Two mistakes have led to Villarreal’s goals otherwise Mikel Arteta’s team were dominating the match. Even after Ceballos’s dismissal by a red card in the second half, Arsenal kept their composure and fought even harder to gain a penalty and score.

Mikel Arteta will be happy with his team’s performance on Sunday in the Premier League against Newcastle where the Gunners won 2-0 and more importantly Arsenal captain Aubameyang was back and scored the second goal. Arsenal need a win in this match something they have done at the Emirates while playing in the Europa League four times out of six.

Defeatless Villarreal inspired by Emre’s expertise in the UEL

The most successful coach in the Europa League Unai Emre will have to use all his knowledge of the Arsenal team to overcome the Londoners and qualify for his fourth UEL final with Villarreal. The Spaniard would have preferred to avoid conceding the one goal at El Madrigal which would have made their task much easier. Now they have to avoid a defeat by one goal something they haven’t tasted throughout the 2020/21 campaign in the Europa League.

Villarreal have been in great form in the UEL winning 11 and drawing just one of their 12 matches so far. The Yellow Submarines have won five of their six away matches in the UEL and enter this match with full confidence that Emre will guide them to the Final. With Alcacer and Moreno having scored six goals each in the UEL so far, Emre will rely on the duo to score an early goal and secure and knockout his former team.

Key Stats

  • Both teams have scored in Arsenal’s nine matches of 13 in the UEL
  • Both teams have scored in Villarreal’s 50% of matches in the UEL
  • Arsenal have just three clean sheets in the UEL
  • Villarreal have scored in all 12 matches in the UEL

Arsenal vs Villarreal Prediction

The Gunners are chasing a European spot at all costs. In the Premier League, they are five points away at ninth position with four matches still to be played in the season. They have to win all their matches and hope others lose points. The gunners still have tough matches like away to Chelsea. They would prefer a UEL trophy as they longed for it for some time now.

Villarreal are relatively safe at the sixth position that qualifies them to UEL next season but they would prefer a trophy as well and they will fight for a final berth.

We think it will be a grueling contest with both teams having scoring capabilities thus we will back both teams to score for our first prediction.

There is a chance that Villarreal might continue their good form and get out of the Emirates with a good result thus we will back away win or draw for our second prediction.
