Slavia Prague vs Arsenal: Predictions

Arsenal had the first leg win all but wrapped up until Tomas Holes netted in the third minute of stoppage time to secure the Czech side with a huge away goal to swing the tie in their favour. The Gunners have a recent history of conceding late on at home in the Europa League but they will be hoping for more joy away from home on Thursday. 

Slavia Prague have proven to be no pushover in this season’s Europa League. The Czech side have been perhaps the surprise package of the tournament having already dumped Leicester City and Rangers out of the competition. By no means is this tie done, however, the late goal has left the ball in Mike Arteta’s park to go an attack the second-leg now.

The Gunners bounced back from their European disappointment as they took their frustrations out on the Premier League’s bottom side Sheffield United. Two goals from Alexandre Lacazette and one from Gabriel Martinelli secured a comfortable 3-0 victory for the north London side as they look to secure their place in the top half of the table.

It has been a huge week for Slavia who jumped straight back into the Czech First League with a top of the table clash against their city rivals, Sparta Prague. Slavia prevailed 2-0 victors which not only secured city bragging rights but also extended their lead at the top of the table to a huge 17 points

Slavia Prague vs Arsenal: Match Stats

Alexandre Lacazette has been in fine form in the Premier League in recent weeks having scored five goals in his last six league games. However, the Frenchman will feel he has something to make up for on Thursday after a stunning miss in the first leg which in hindsight would have given the Gunners an advantage going into this away leg.

Prague won all three of their group stage home games, with noteworthy wins against Bayer Leverkusen and Nice. However, in the knockout stages, Prague have drawn both of their home ties against Leicester and Rangers. Both of those games had fewer than 2.5 goals in them and the Leicester clash actually ended goalless.
