Tip Slavia Prague - Arsenal
Slavia Prague will host Arsenal, hoping to continue with their impressive form in the Europa League as the two sides battle for a spot in the semi finals. In the first leg of this tie, Slavia Prague came from a goal down to draw 1-1 with the Gunners and will have advantage going to this game. The hosts are unbeaten in 23 matches going to this one and will be further boosted by their 2-0 derby win over Sparta Prague in their weekend clash. They eliminated two sides from Britain in the last two rounds, and will feel adding Arsenal to that list is a big possibility. They need at least a 0-0 draw to advance and having kept clean sheets in four of their last five matches, it doesn’t look like an impossible mission. The team has also done well in attack, scoring two or more in three of the last five and Toma Holes, the man who scored the equalizer at the Emirates has been key in this aspect. Holes has three goals in the last four matches and will be a man to watch here. Slavia Prague have two losses and six wins in the Europa League this season but heading here they are unbeaten in their last five, with two wins and three clean sheets. They are also unbeaten in the last five home matches in this competition but the last two ended in draws. The Czech side has scored twice in two of the last four Europa League matches but each of their last five matches has produced under 2.5 goals.
Arsenal head to this game on the back of a good win over Sheffield United in the Premier League. It is just the result they needed after going winless in the earlier four matches and they will look at that as a good warm up game for this crucial fixture. For the Gunners, this is a very crucial game and most of their season’s targets are now hinged on winning this game, or at least getting a scoring draw of two goals or more. The 3-0 win over Sheffield gave Arsenal a first clean sheet in the last 15 matches and they will be looking to build on it, already having a good away run ahead of their trip to Prague. The Gunners are unbeaten in six away matches, winning three and drawing three. With the need for goals in this game, Arsenal’s confidence will be fueled by the fact they’ve scored three goals in four of their last five away matches. Alex Lacazette has scored four in the last five away matches and after his brace against Sheffield, he is sure to lead the line for the Gunners, but they’ll be hoping for better defence, with only one clean sheet in six away matches. Arsenal have been among the best performers in Europa League this season, with eight wins and one loss in the 11 matches they’ve played. In their win over Sheffield, the only negative was Bukayo Saka’s withdrawal with a thigh injury and he is a doubt for this game.

Conclusion Slavia Prague - Arsenal
Arsenal have all to do in this game, after a dominant display at home but failing to win. Slavia Prague were on the back foot for most of the first leg and will want to sit back and defend here, knowing a 0-0 draw will work for them. They’ve drawn in their last two Europa League games at home and facing a Gunners side putting all in this game, will need a very good defensive strategy. The defensive strategy worked well against Rangers and Leicester in the last two rounds. We aren’t sure it will against Arsenal in their current scoring form away from home, and with Lacazette on fire. All of Arsenal’s season’s hopes come down to this game and we can bet on the Gunners winning in Prague.
