Arsenal failed to capitalize on Vrsaljko’s tenth-minute red card in the first leg against Atletico Madrid at home, drawing 1-1 with the Spanish giants, and the second leg at the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium will be quite difficult for Arsene Wenger’s team considering Atletico performance in front of the home crowd. Winning the Europa League is the only chance for the Gunners to secure Champions League football for the next season, but Los Colchoneros are looking to lift a European trophy for the first time since 2012 when they won this exact competition. Diego Simeone’s side defeated Alaves on the road last weekend by one goal to nil, while Arsenal lost 2-1 to Manchester United at Old Trafford thanks to Fellaini’s injury-time goal, which was their third loss in the previous five away matches. However, the North London side demonstrated their attacking quality at the Emirates Stadium last week, creating numerous promising goalscoring opportunities, and if they can repeat the same display in Madrid, anything could happen.
Filipe Luís and Juanfran are yet to recover from injuries and won’t be available for the encounter, while Sime Vrsaljko won’t be in the squad due to suspension. On the other hand, Mohamed Elneny and Santi Cazorla are ruled out with physical problems, but Wenger could be happy to see Henrikh Mkhitaryan back to action after few weeks of inactivity.
