Thursday’s Europa League match between Sporting and Arsenal will take place at Estadio Jose Alvalade, marking the first time the two teams have met in European competitions since 2018.

Arsenal enters the game with confidence after their comeback victory over Bournemouth and is expected to maintain their attacking style of play.

While Leonardo Trossard is likely to recover in time to face the Lions, Gabriel Jesus is not expected to play. Eddie Nketiah is pushing for a starting spot after missing the Bournemouth game due to injury.

On the other hand, the hosts are on a four-game winning streak in all competitions.

However, Arsenal will pose a much greater threat to Ruben Amorim’s team than their previous opponents.

Paulinho is expected to return to the starting lineup after scoring the winning goal against Portimonense, while Daniel Braganca is still recovering from an injury.

Nevertheless, an away win should be considered as Mikel Arteta can rely on his key players for the first leg.
