Match Preview & Team News
Standard Liege need a miracle in the last round of the Europa League group phase to advance to the knockout stage of the competition. They sit third in the Group F standings with a three-point deficit to leaders Arsenal, while Eintracht Frankfurt are second and need a victory over the rock-bottomed (already eliminated) Vitoria Guimaraes to be safe regardless of the outcome of the clash in Liege.
The Belgians need to win by at least five goals difference
The huge problem for the hosts is a demolishing 4-0 loss they’ve suffered in London back in early-October on Matchday 2. It means they need to beat this result (win by at least five goals difference) to overtake Arsenal and advance at the expense of the North Londoners. It is a highly unlikely scenario in spite of Arsenal’s dreadful spell of form in the last few weeks.
Speaking of the hosts, they hold the 3rd position after 18 rounds in the Belgian First Division A. They barely saved a point on Sunday afternoon against Royal Excel Mouscron thank to a 94th minute equalizer (a 2-2 draw).
The Gunners are not pulling up any trees under Freddie Ljungberg either
Arsenal are going through a very turbulent period. Freddie Ljungberg took over Unai Emery on the bench, but the Swede is yet to shift the team’s fortunes around. In fact, the Gunners continued to struggle as they suffered back-to-back home defeats at the hands of Eintracht Frankfurt (1-2 in the Europa League) and Brighton (1-2 in the Premier League). Arsenal conceded at least two goals in each of the last five outings across competitions.
Full Time Winner Odds & Prediction
