Benfica will play against Arsenal in the Europa League and we got Football paid betting tips for the match. The game is on Thursday, February 18 from 20:00 UK at Stadio Olimpico.
Benfica is in 4th place in Primeira Liga with 38 points after 19 matches. However, the team is not in great form as they won only one of their last six games in the league. The victory was at home against Famalicão. Sporting beat them 1:0 during that period and all other results were draws. Their last clash was away from home against Moreirense and finished 1:1. In the group stage of the Europa League, the Portuguese team was with Lech Poznań, Standard Liège, and Rangers. Benfica recorded 3 wins and 3 draws to advance to the elimination phase.
Arsenal is in 10th place in Premier League with 34 points after 24 games. The team of Mikel Arteta won only 1 of their last 4 matches in the league but it happened in their last one. They played at home against Leeds and beat them 4:2. Pierre Aubameyang scored his first hattrick as an Arsenal player for the victory against Leeds United. That ended a two matches streak in which the Gooners were beaten away from home from Wolverhampton and Aston Villa. In the group stage, the club from London won all of their matches as their opponents were Dundalk, Molde, and Rapid Wien.
Arsenal is the favorite in the upcoming clash from Europa League. The match will be played in Italy so neither team will have the home advantage and giving the results of the Gooners in the tournament so far, they are the favorite. Benfica is not in form but clashes like these are what great teams are made for and I expect goals from both teams here. Football paid betting tips: BTTS
