Arsenal will be looking to get back on track in the Champions League on Tuesday after they were stunned on matchday two by Lens in France. The Gunners remain the favorites to top the Group B standings, but defeat in Spain this week could create uncertainty when it comes to their chances of progression to the next round.
The Gunners only had themselves to blame on matchday two, as they looked to be in complete control against Lens following Gabriel Jesus’s opener. However, they never really recovered after watching Bukayo Saka limp off the field, and defensive mistakes ultimately cost them in France.
It has been a strange start to the season for Sevilla, as they already sit toward the bottom of the standings in La Liga, and have moved onto their second manager this term. The reigning Europa League holders have made an unbeaten start to the Champions League, but they are also yet to win.
Sevilla have played out draws in each of their opening two matches, with their most recent ending in dramatic fashion against PSV. The Dutch side scored a 95th minute equalizer to snatch a point after Youssef En-Nesyri had believed he had scored the winning goal in the clash with just three minutes remaining on the clock.
Sevilla vs Arsenal Prediction
Both sides have landed a victory apiece in the two previous encounters between the sides. However, it looks challenging to overlook Sevilla’s struggles this term. Therefore, it could be worth siding with the Gunners bouncing back from their defeat in France on matchday two.
