The ARS vs LIS Match Preview
Arsenal will look to continue their impressive run in Europe when they play host to an offbeat Sporting Lisbon side in Matchday 4 of UEFA Europa League.
Unai Emery has injected just the right spirit in Arsenal that their loyal fans were dying to witness from ages now. With an impressive draw against the dominant Liverpool a couple of days ago, Arsenal will be rearing to have a go at Sporting to seal their round of 32 spot.
For Sporting it has been an up and down sort of a week with a defeat to Estoril Praia and a win over Santa Clara. Tiago Fernandes knows the importance of grabbing even a point from this fixture. Anything positive at the Emirates will pretty much help Sporting keep their noses ahead of Qarabag and Vorskla in Group E.

Players to look out for
- Danny Welbeck
It was Danny Welbeck who sunk Sporting in the last game and it will be him again holding the key for Arsenal upfront. Hasn’t delivered his best yet, but the glimpses he has shown makes him the right choice for tomorrow’s fixture.
Yes aged, but he is the best Sporting have to offer against Arsenal’s might. Despite age getting on him, Nani has been pivotal in Sporting’s results this season and will be our pick from the visitors side for tomorrow’s crucial fixture.
Gambling India Info Match Prediction ARS vs LIS
Sporting have got quite a lot to play for but have got very limited resources to play with. No manager, no top names, and from here if Sporting manage to win, and that too an away game, it will be nothing less than a remarkable turn around. To put it straight, our prediction states the obvious, an Arsenal win!
