North London giants Arsenal are under immense pressure ahead of their Europa League semifinal first leg clash with Spanish club Valencia.
The Gunners will host the Spanish team at the Emirates Stadium in their first leg meeting on Thursday night before the return leg next Thursday.
Arsenal manager Unai Emery and his players are struggling to qualify for the Champions League via the league route and the Europa League could be their best bet if they are to make a return to Europe’s premier club competition after a two-year absence.
Opponents Valencia are also in the same situation as far as qualifying for Champions League football via the league route is concerned.
Arsenal go into the Valencia game on the back of three successive league defeats which was made worse by the fact that they conceded three goals in each of those defeats.
The Gunners have won five and drawn one of their six Europa League home games this season and a possible win over Valencia is at the odds of 2.00 according to Surebet247.
On the other hand, Spanish giants Valencia have won two and drawn one of their three away games in the Europa League since they dropped down from the Champions League.
An away win for Valencia is at the odds of 3.80 while the possibility of a draw is at the odds of 2.47 as revealed by Surebet247.
