Arsenal vs Villarreal Match Preview and Team News
The Gunners warmed up for this game with a 2-0 win over Newcastle United in the Premier League. It was their first clean sheet in four matches, and they need more of that on Thursday to secure their place in the finals. They have three wins in the last ten games, and their clean sheets in the ten matches have only come in those wins. Their loss to Villarreal was the second in four games in this competition, but the biggest worry will be the fact that they’ve managed just one clean sheet in the last nine Europa League matches. The hosts go to this game having no win in the previous five home matches and failed to score in three of them. In the last nine home matches, they have no clean sheet. Bukayo Saka shows her talent and should be one of the leading players in the future. Nicolas Pepe showed why he was brought in. He has good dribbling, speed is his advantage, he is the starter in every game, and he scored several vital goals last season.
Villarreal labored through their 1-0 win over Getafe in La Liga and will be hoping for a smoother game at the Emirates. It was their second straight win and the first clean sheet in seven matches. Villarreal hasn’t lost any of their Europa League matches this season. Unai Emery, once an Arsenal manager, is a specialist in this competition and even got the Gunners to the final two years ago. The Spanish side has won 12 of the 13 matches played this season in the competition. They have nine straight wins in Europa League matches coming right before this one and have kept clean sheets in six of them. They’ve won with clean sheets in each of their last four away matches in the Europa League and are unbeaten in six. Midfielder Moi Gomez has found the proper role in the team, he is moving great, and many say that he could be the new Santi Cazorla. Gerard Moreno plays excellently, he is fast in the one-on-one game, and he is unstoppable.
