Arsenal will seek to move past their woes in the first-leg of this fixture. And coming on the back of a disappointing defeat at the Emirates Stadium last weekend against the runaway leaders Manchester City, the Gunners will be hoping to bounce back in this fixture.

Meanwhile, Benfica will be heading into this fixture after another drab draw against relegation-threatened Farense. This result dealt another blow to their title challenge, as they continue to endure a rough patch in the Portuguese Primeira Liga.

Arsenal vs Benfica Team News

In their previous league outing, Arsenal suffered a 1-0 defeat against Manchester City. An early opener by Raheem Sterling had the Gunners chasing the game for the entirety of the match. The league leaders asserted their dominance in this fixture, and they were rewarded with all three points.

Having garnered 34 points from 25 league games in the top-flight, Arsenal currently sit in the table’s bottom half, 11th-place on the league standings. Despite making an impressive start to the year, they seem to be slowing down as they have won only once in their last six games in all competitions.

The North London club should be heading into this fixture with a good advantage, if they had been more clinical in the first leg. Nevertheless, Mikel Arteta will be urging his charges to take their chances when they arise in this contest, as they stand a risk of elimination if found wanting.

Benfica's last fixture ended in a 0-0 stalemate against Farense. As Aguias were underwhelming yet again in this fixture. Despite bossing possession of the ball, they couldn't convert their dominance into good goalscoring chances, as they managed only two shots on goal.

Jorge Jesus’ men have been struggling since the turn of the year, and this recent draw further deepened their woes in the race for domestic success. Having amassed 39 points from 20 games, they occupy 4th-spot on the league table, fifteen points adrift league leaders and city rivals, Sporting Lisbon.

Despite making a strong start to the season, they have had the wind taken out of their sails in recent weeks. In fact, they have played four draws in their last six games, and Jorge Jesus will be left scratching his head in a bid to find a solution to his side's 'stagnancy'.

The first leg ended in an entertaining 1-1 stalemate. After both sides went in at break on level terms, the second half started with Pizzi converting from the spot to give Benfica the lead – albeit for a short time, as impressive youngster Bukayo Saka scored the leveller.

Injured or Suspended Players

Arsenal: No injuries or suspensions.

Benfica: Andre Almeida and Jardel.

Who will win the match?

Arsenal vs Benfica Predictions

Arsenal's defensive aspect of the game has improved since the arrival of their Spanish manager, and they will aim to frustrate their opponents with limited opportunities in this tie.

Meanwhile, it is concerning that Benfica's goal output has waned in recent weeks. Given Arsenal's renewed confidence in defense and Benfica's struggles in front of goal, we are expecting a low-scoring encounter here, with no more than two goals on the board.
