Vitória SC vs Arsenal, Europa League, Estádio D. Afonso Henriques

The match is over.
Score: 1-1.

Vitoria surprised Arsenal in London before eventually losing 3-2 in what was a closer match than many expected. The Gunners will not want a repeat of that display in Portugal.

Our Betting Tips

Thanks to that closer than expected match at the Emirates, the bookmakers have lengthened the odds for an Arsenal victory – so now is the time to back the English side.

There is the feeling that Vitoria could do even better at home than they did in London. But Arsenal know that qualification for the next round is in their grasp and could go in for the kill here.

Arsenal should dominate this game but will be in no hurry to get the goals. This could be a low scoring victory for the visiting side.


Head to Head

These two sides met for the first time in the previous game in this group when Arsenal beat Vitoria 3-2.


  • Vitoria have played English clubs on four occasions in European competition and have never lost the home leg of a tie – winning one and drawing the rest.
  • Arsenal have scored more goals than any other team in the Europa League group stage. The Gunners have managed to find the net ten times in just three games.
  • Vitoria finished fifth in Portugal’s Primeira Liga last season to qualify for the Europa League. The club are looking to replicate that form this year and currently sit in exactly the same position.
  • In the last two seasons in the Europa League Arsenal have been knocked out in the semi finals and then finished runners up. Gunners fans will be hoping their team can go one better this year.

Our Prediction for Vitória SC vs Arsenal

Arsenal to win

Arsenal needed a late brace from Nicolas Pepe to eventually take the points in North London – but this game should be easier with the visitors looking to qualify for the knock out stage two games early.
