What Trueform says for Atletico Madrid vs Arsenal
Atletico Madrid appear to be holding all the aces in their Europa League tie with Arsenal after drawing 1-1 in London, but we still believe the Gunners can go through.
Arsene Wenger’s side failed to fully capitalise on Sime Vrsaljko’s 10th-minute dismissal, but they can take heart from how many chances they created at Emirates Stadium.
It will take something special to advance in Spain, yet 12/5 for the Gunners to reach the final is still rated good value in our Atletico Madrid vs Arsenal betting tips.
A Look At Atletico Madrid’s Betting Odds
A defensive slip allowed Antoine Griezmann to equalise late on and leave the tie finely poised heading into the return leg.
The French striker had also forced David Ospina to make a fine save in the first half and will be an obvious threat in Madrid.
Atletico boss Diego Simeone, who was sent to the stands during the opening game, hailed the efforts of his players, as they battled to overcome the early red card setback.
The Argentinian said: “To be honest, it was 90 minutes in which my body was full of strong emotions, these players are basically heroes.
“They stood firm, after a long season, for 80 minutes in a tremendous way. I have goosebumps thinking about the next match.”
Atletico have only lost twice in 26 matches on home turf this term, but those defeats will give Arsenal some encouragement.
Chelsea prevailed 2-1 here during the Champions League group stage and Sevilla came out on top by the same scoreline when knocking Los Colchoneros out of Copa del Rey.
A Look At Arsenal’s Betting Odds
Arsenal may have had a one-man advantage for much of the game, but the way they dominated the first leg was still impressive.
Alexandre Lacazette had already hit the post before breaking the deadlock just after the hour mark.
Griezmann’s equaliser against the run of play was a huge body blow, but the Gunners almost hit back through Danny Welbeck, who was denied by a superb stop from Jan Oblak.
Jack Wilshere declared: “It was definitely not the result we wanted, but the performance was good and we have got to take confidence from that and take that into the away fixture.
“It is half-time. We cannot be too disappointed. We created a lot of chances. If we create chances and put them away, then we have got a chance.”
Punters can get 11/10 for the Gunners to win or draw in 90 minutes on the night at Wanda Metropolitano and that completes our Atletico Madrid vs Arsenal betting tips.
Wenger’s side should not be afraid of playing in such an imposing stadium, having beaten AC Milan 2-0 at the San Siro in an earlier round.
