Valencia welcome Arsenal to Mestalla for the second leg of their Europa League semi-final with the Gunners leading 3-1 from the first game.

Predictions

Valencia are currently in sixth in the Primera Division table just three points off a Champions League qualification place. They travel to Huesca on the weekend before focusing on their second leg tie with the Gunners – and their last outing was a 1-0 loss at home to Eibar.

Arsenal at time of writing are in fifth in the Premier League table just two points behind Chelsea in fourth and have a home match with Brighton and Hove Albion on the Sunday. Unai Emery’s side have lost their last three league games in a row and were soundly beaten by Leicester City 3-0 in their last outing.

Valencia finished third in their Champions League group behind Juventus and Manchester United, but ahead of Young Boys. They have seen off Celtic, Russian side Krasnodar, and local rivals Villareal so far in their Europa League run to the semi-finals.

Arsenal came top of their Europa League group ahead Sporting Lisbon, Ukrainian side Vorskla, and Qarabag. The Gunners have overcome Bate Borisov, French side Rennes and Napoli on their way to the semis. A 2-1 win for Valencia is well worth a shout.

Betting Tips

A Valencia win is available 

Arsenal won 3-1 at the Emirates Stadium in the first leg and Valencia will have to come out of the blocks early to try get back into the tie.           

Total goals over 2.5

The Spanish side have an away goal and need to score at least two to go through to the final, while the Gunners know that a goal for them will probably kill off the tie and that could be why the bookies are offering odds for the over 2.5 goals scored market.

Head to Head

These sides first met in the final of the 1980 Cup Winners Cup and the Andalusian club lifted the trophy after they won 5-4 on penalties. They met again in the quarter-final stage of the 2000-2001 Champions League with the Spanish side going through on away goals after the Gunners won 2-1 at home before losing 1-0 in Mestalla. Valencia drew 0-0 in London in the second Group Stage of the 2002-2003 edition before winning 2-1 at home.

Stats

  • Valencia have lost just one of their last 21 games at home in all competitions and have lost just three times in total, twice in La Liga and once in Europe, which was a 2-0 loss to Juventus in the Champions League.
  • Arsenal have won just two of their last eight games on their travels between cup and league competition and have won just four out of 16 road matches since the start of December.
  • Valencia will be hoping to win a European trophy for the fist time since they beat Marseille 2-0 in the 2004 UEFA Cup Final.
  • Arsenal are looking to reach their first European final since they lost to Barcelona 2-1 in the 2006 Champions League final.
