Arsenal predicted lineup vs Benfica: Preview
Arsenal were held to a 1-1 draw in the first leg of the tie, giving them the away goal advantage against a tough Benfica side. However, with the disappointing 1-0 loss to Manchester City in the Premier League, Arsenal’s defensive woes have been exposed and Benfica is expected to go all out attack to survive in the Europa League. Arsenal’s only hope for silverware rests on this performance, which would show their credentials to proceed further in the competition.
Benfica have not been in the best of forms, with a 4th position in the Portugal league and being held to a 0-0 draw to Farense in this week’s domestic match day. Benfica would need to rely on an exceptional performance and try to score an early goal against an Arsenal side who have been inconsistent throughout this season and their inability to react to quick goals.
