Match status: 2020/21 Europa League - 1/16-finals
Kick-off:
Venue: Stadio Olimpico (Rome)
Coming off a win against Leeds in the Premier League, Arsenal are in a confident mood. Winning all six games in the group stage, they are on top of the world in this competition. Putting aside their domestic troubles, the Gunners can afford to put all their eggs in one basket and go for broke in this match.

Benfica are also considered European giants as they are currently unbeaten in the Europa League this season. They will also be putting aside their respectable placing domestically to try and go all the way in this competition. Failing to clinch top stop in Group D, Benfica will have to dig themselves out of a hole they dug themselves in.

Benfica vs Arsenal Team News

With a suddenly-reenergized Aubameyang, Arsenal will be confident. The speedy Gabonese bagged an hattrick last time out domestically against Leeds. Though the same match also showcased Arsenal’s leaky backline as they conceded two goals in the same evening.

Elsewhere, Benifca are coming off a loss domestically. Though losing by the lone goal against the current league leaders, As Águias, will take consolation in the fact they drove the runaway leaders to a 90-minute winner. They will be looking to, at least, replicate or maybe even better that result on Thursday evening.

With Mikel Arteta admitting the fact that Arsenal are not in the running for a top four finish, he will be looking to secure some sort of consolation via Europe. We should expect a strong team that will surely get the job done in Portugal and reduce the pressure on Arsenal’s manager.

As away goals are still a huge factor in these European two-legged ties, Benfica will hope their defense is resolute enough to stop a certain rejuvenated Aubameyang. But with the third-highest number of goals scored in Europa League so far, they’ll be hoping to keep Arsenal worried, which is the best form of defence.

Benfica are 13 points adrift of the summit in Portugal and this should bring about a re-arrangement of priorities. Jorge Jesus should be gunning for a deep run into Europa League’s latter stages and maybe even go all the way. Benfica will surely be playing with a lot more drive and edge, something Arsenal should be wary of.

Arsenal absolutely steam rolled their group competitors. Winning 6 from all available 6 games in the group state as well as scoring a whopping 20 goals. Finishing with the highest goal-difference across all Europa League group, 18 points. Continuing this bulldozing will be the only thing on Arsenal’s mind and they’ll be hoping to do just that.

Last time out - a very long time ago – I should add, Benfica ran out 4-2 winners on aggregate in the second round of the European Cup. Times are obviously different now. Arsenal’s speed and talent up front should make sure that this time, things will be different.

Injured or Suspended Players

Benfica: Andre Almeida, Jardel and Gilberto.

Who will win the match?

Benfica vs Arsenal Predictions

As mentioned, Aubameyang suddenly has a change of fortune in front of goal and that counts for a lot. A captain firing on all cylinders is sure to lift the team’s spirit. Partnered with a Nicolas Pepe on 3 goals and 3 assists this European season, Arsenal will have enough firepower to get them the game.

Benfica will be looking to stifle this attack and will surely have their work cut out trying to stop a team seeming unstoppable in Europe this season.

Looking out on both teams and form on the road, Arsenal should be able to come out on top in this one. Aubameyang and co. will be on the prowl, looking to finally bring back an European title to the Emirates. Barring an Arsenal-esque capitulation, the Gunners should have no problems taking this one.
