The Europa League tie with Spanish club Valencia has taken up more significance for North London giants Arsenal following their failure to qualify for the Champions League next season via the league route.
The Gunners are out of contention with one game to go in the Premier League this season and the only realistic chance of securing a place in the Champions League is by winning the Europa League.
Arsenal manager Unai Emery won the Europa League for three straight seasons during his time with Spanish La Liga side Sevilla but he still has a lot of work to do to secure a fourth title in the competition starting with the Valencia game.
The Spaniard will be facing his former club for the second time in a week and there’s little margin for error on the part of him and his players.
Arsenal take a 3-1 first leg from home to Spain to face hosts Valencia who will start as favourites for the second leg at the odds of 1.86 according to Surebet247.
The Gunners have won just one of their three knockout stage games away from home this season and they are backed for a win by Surebet247 at odds of 3.90 while the possibility of a stalemate is accompanied by 3.80 odds.
Valencia have 3.90 odds to qualify for the Europa League final while Arsenal have 1.29 odds to qualify for the final according to Surebet247.
