INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:
Arsenal is expected to rotate the squads in this match since they are already winning by away goals but what would be their only concern is that in their last five home games they failed to register a single clean sheet so that would give the visitors some hope but defeating Arsenal in their home ground would be a herculean task and even when they are already leading by 3 away goals.
