Preview: Arsenal vs Sporting

When William Saliba gave his side the lead midway through the first half, it looked as though Arsenal would cruise to a fifth successive victory in Portugal. However, Sporting came from behind to lead 2-1 after the break.

Hidemasa Morita’s own goal saw the Gunners come away with a draw, but they could – and probably should – have won the first leg, after racking up 68% possession and 14 shots at the Estadio Jose Alvalade.

Mikel Arteta’s men continued their pursuit of Premier League glory with a convincing 3-0 victory over Fulham last time out, maintaining a five-point lead over Manchester City at the summit of the English top flight. 

Consequently, Arsenal head into Thursday’s clash on a run of five wins in six outings across all competitions, with only two defeats coming in 17 home matches this season.

It is worth noting, however, that Sporting are enjoying an unbeaten run of their own at the moment, having picked up five wins and two draws since their last loss. Like Arsenal, the Lions extended their hot streak with a 3-0 victory last weekend.

With Sporting sitting fourth in the Portuguese top flight – 15 points shy of table-topping Benfica – the Europa League is arguably the best route to silverware for Ruben Amorim’s side this season.

Arsenal vs Sporting prediction

Having won each of their last five away games across all competitions, Sporting will not go down without a fight on Thursday. That said, we expect Arsenal to book their place in the quarter-finals with a comfortable victory on home soil.
