Who will win the final before the final?
Atletico Madrid and Arsenal failed to win in the first semi-final of League Europe in London a week ago, ending 1: 1. The result gives more chance to the “mausoleums” to move forward, but the “gunmen” are not for delisting, as the bet is much bigger for them.
For Londoners, winning the trophy is an opportunity to get into the Champions League in the new season, after running sixth in the league without a chance for a place in the top 4. League Europe is also the last chance for manager Arsene Wenger to leave with a trophy after announcing the withdrawal after the end of the Premier League season.
Despite the unpleasant outcome of the first match, Arsenal is optimistic about continuing ahead, with at least one goal at Wanda Metropolitano.
The striker Henrik Mhitarian, who missed the first match due to an injury, returned to the match group. The Armenian national, however, played the first minute against Manchester United and trained on a par with the rest. At the disposal of Arsene Wenger, Alex Ayobi, who is recovering from the game, will be available.
Atletico was also delighted with good news. Brazilian defender Philippe Lewis returned to the group after being absent for a month and a half. “The Matches” have defense problems because of Sime Vursalko’s punishment from the first game and the injury of Juanfran, who is still recovering.
Atletico Madrid: Cloud, Parte, Jimenez, Godin, Hernandez, Corea, Saul, Gabi, Coke, Grizzman, Kosta.
Arsenal: Ospeda, Montreal, Kosielen, Mustafa, Beierin, Wilshire, Jack, Ramsay, Mhitaryan, Yosil, Lakazet.
