Arsenal vs Atlético de Madrid – Europa League: Everyone is saying that this is an early final and, truth be told
an encounter between Arsenal and Atlético de Madrid really sounds like a Champions League’s match.
These are two teams with a lot of history on the Champions League, much more than in the Europa League looking for consolation prizes. They are fighting for different reasons at this stage of the season.
Arsenal can only qualify for the largest European competition in case they win the Europa League, while Atlético is looking to elevate, once again, the spirits of their fans and come into next season with a bang.
Arsenal will say goodbye to Arsène Wenger, but the French manager doesn’t seem willing to leave without a great contribution to his always historical stay at the club.
If on the Premier League the team lost competitiveness, on the Europa League they found a space to recover some confidence on their fight to win.
On the knockout rounds, they have eliminated Ostersunds, AC Milan and CSKA Moscow, which allowed them to reach these semi-finals.
Undoubtedly, the hardest opponent they will have to face will be this Thursday’s.
The level of Atlético de Madrid surpasses Arsenal’s, even if Diego Simeone’s team was unable to put up a better fight for the La Liga’s title.
Still, the 2nd place is a position that proves they are on a high level.
The great surprise was seeing Atlético drop from the Champions League, on a group where the competition of AS Roma and Chelsea proved to be too demanding.
Then, they knocked out Copenhagen, Lokomotiv Moscow and Sporting, to try and give back to Spain the dominance on the 2nd European competition.
Arsenal vs Atlético de Madrid – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Playing at home, Arsenal will feel the need of taking the initiative, something that will actually please Simeone’s Atlético.
What Wenger will not want is already jeopardizing their chances of advancing.
