Expert Betting Tips
Sporting is no longer fighting for the Primera title in the current campaign. The club is even behind Braga in the fight for third place and qualification to the Champions League. A good performance on the European stage now could fix the Lisbon club's situation. Arsenal is the absolute favorite of this pairing, but we cannot discount the team of Ruben Amorim. In Lisbon, Sporting showed that they could create problems for the Gunners. We believe this will also be a productive encounter with goals from both teams.
