Arsenal v Valencia betting preview
Arsenal have lost their last three Premier League matches, conceding three goals in each of thoseArsenal come into this clash with Valencia on the back of a terrible run of three consecutive domestic defeats - 2:3 at home against Crystal Palace, 3-1 at Wolves and 3-0 at Leicester. They sit fifth in the Premier League standings, meaning that success in the Europa League could be the best way for them to secure Champions League football next season. The Gunners enjoyed an excellent 2-0 aggregate success against Napoli in the quarter-finals but they had previously made hard work of getting past BATE Borisov and Rennes.
Unai Emery hopes to welcome back both Mesut Ozil and Nacho Monreal from injury. The former should start as number ten behind the strikers Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. The latter is expected to play as centre back alongside Sokratis and Laurent Koscielny, who is likely to feature from the off after only making the bench at the weekend. Aaron Ramsey is definitely out for the rest of the season with a hamstring complaint. Denis Suárez has cut short his loan spell at Arsenal and returned to Barcelona for treatment on a groin injury while Rob Holding, Hector Bellerin and Danny Welbeck are all long-term absentees.
Valencia have lost three of their last five matchesValencia have also suffered back-to-back defeats in La Liga. Prior to that, they lost just once in 22 matches, gaining progress in this tournament as well as the Copa del Rey where they’ll face Barcelona in the final. Their main strength this season has been their defensive solidity, with Marcelino Garcia's side having conceded the third-fewest goals in La Liga, where they sit 6th at the moment. At the other side of the pitch, Los Che have a good offensive production. Marcelino's men have scored 11 goals in their six UEL games so far this term, and they have scored at least twice in four of their last six La Liga matches.
Denis Cheryshev and Geoffrey Kondogbia are not expected to shake off injuries in time to play a part. With Cristiano Piccini a doubt, Daniel Wass may be required at right-back once again. Gabriel Paulista and Ezequiel Garay will start as centre backs. Francis Coquelin is suspended, meaning that Carlos Soler will be needed in central midfield. Up front, Rodrigo Moreno and Santi Mina will spearhead the attack, with Goncalo Guedes and Ferran Torres providing support from the flanks.
