Arsenal vs Villarreal CF 06.05.2021

Trailing 2-0 down to Unai Emery’s Villarreal at their Estadio de la Ceramica and with a man down after the dismissal of Ceballos for a second bookable offense, Arsenal’s European campaign this season seemed to be dead in the water and all indications were Villarreal would go for their throttle. In a strange twist of the tale, however, it is Arsenal that turned the tide on their hosts and their efforts bore fruits as they earned a penalty that Pepe converted to pick up a valuable away goal coming into this second leg.

Villarreal were ultimately left to rue the missed opportunities and despite the 2-1 advantage they carry to this 2nd leg, the momentum seems to have swung heavily in the direction of the Londoners.  Not only did they gift Arsenal the crucial away goal, but they also returned the favour of going down to 10 men when midfielder Etienne Capoue got his marching orders with 10 minutes left on the clock.

Both teams won their respective league games at the weekend and will be in high spirits coming into this match. The Gunners have come up huge when their backs are against the wall. With qualification for European football looking increasingly unlikely via the league route, we are backing them to give all they have in the tank here and we fancy they will pick up the win.
