Atletico Madrid vs Arsenal
Europa League, Semi-Final 2nd Leg
ATL vs ARS Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
All the hopes of Atletico Madrid and Arsenal of making this season a success hinges on the Europa League glory. And unluckily, both Arsenal and Atletico are up against each other in the semifinal and only one of them could lift this trophy if either of these aforementioned teams wins in the final against either Marseille or Red Bull Salzburg.
This is Arsene Wenger’s final season as an Arsenal manager. He has won every trophy at the Highbury and Emirates Stadium with only two trophies eluding him all these years – League Cup and a European trophy.
Arsenal couldn’t win the League cup this year, so Wenger can’t win that trophy. But the Gunners are still in Europe and this is the trophy that their long-serving manager could realistically win get his hands on for the first and the last time as an Arsenal manager.
But it’s easier said than done as Gunners are chasing the tie against Atletico Madrid. They conceded an away goal in the first leg and drew 1-1 at the Emirates despite playing against 10-men for the more than 80 minutes. Now they need to score at least a goal at Wanda Metropolitano to have any chance of winning this tie.
Atletico Madrid, on the other hand, should be confident of seeing off Arsenal in the 2nd leg considering they are at home in this match where they haven’t lost a match since January. Since that shock home loss against Sevilla at the start of this year, the Los Rojiblancos have played 10 games at Wanda Metropolitano, winning 10 and conceding none in the process.
So definitely, Atletico are the favorites in this match.

ATL vs ARS Dream11 FANTASY TEAM:
INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:
This is a very-very special match as not only the winner will cement its place in the final of the Europa League but this could be the last time that we see Arsen Wenger managing his Arsenal team for the final time in the Europa League.
While for Atletico Madrid, the situation is quite peculiar as it could be their manager Diego Simeone taking charge of Emirates Stadium come the next season. So he will be itching to show why he should be lined up as a candidate for the hot-seat at Arsenal.
We are backing Atletico Madrid to win this match.
