ARS vs VIL Dream11 Tips for Arsenal vs Villarreal Europa League Fixtures 7 May

Share

ARS vs VIL Dream11: Villarreal made it seven wins from seven in the Europa League knockout stages after a 2-1 victory at home to Arsenal in their semi-final first leg. However, the Gunners are still well in this tie having netted a vital away goal in Spain and know that scoring first in the second leg would turn the semi-final on its head. Whilst the Spaniards have proven unstoppable in the knockout stages of this competition thus far, finishing the job against Arsenal will no doubt prove their hardest challenge.
