Gunners and colchoneros will meet for the first time at official level, in a duel between clubs of the English and Spanish capital, far from the possibility of winning the respective championships, betting everything to obtain this trophy. Arsenal won the group H with four wins, followed by the defeats of Ostersunds, AC Milan and CSKA Moscow. Atletico Madrid fell to the Europa League after being third-placed in their Champions League group, eliminating FC Copenhagen, Lokomotiv Moscow and Sporting Clube de Portugal.

The only meeting between them came in 2009, when the Gunners beat the colchoneros 2-1 at the Emirates Cup, a friendly tournament, this being the 102nd game and last European game for Arsenal coach Arsène Wenger who has announced that he will step down at the end of the season after almost 22 years in charge of the team. We believe in a game with goals.
In the last five Arsenal games in his stadium there were more than 2.5 goals.
In the three games of Arsenal as visited in the elimination phase of the Europa League there were more than 2.5 goals.
Arsenal have scored eight goals in all three of their home games in the elimination phase of the competition.
In three of Atletico Madrid’s last five games as a visitor there were over 2.5 goals.
Arsenal are at this stage for the first time in 18 years, instead of Atletico Madrid, winner of the test twice. However, Arsène Wenger wants to leave in beauty of the technical command of the team and has in this competition a good opportunity for this. We believe in a game with more than 2.5 goals.
