The Gunners finished 1st in Group E with a cool 16 points, but then they faced scares when they reached the knockout stages, first against BATE Borisov in round of 32 and then Rennes in the last 16.
The Italian side on the other hand were knocked out of the Champions League by finishing 3rd in their group, which has seen them overcome first Zurich followed by Red Bull Salzburg with relative ease.
We’re backing Arsenal to clinch a victory at home, as this is the only reaming competition that can grant them some silverware this season, so we reckon they’ll be giving their all.
Benfica v Eintracht Frankfurt – H 2.30 (13/10) D 3.50 (5/2) A 3.25 (9/4)
Eintracht Frankfurt have surprised everyone by reaching the quarter finals of the Europa League by beating Inter Milan 1-0 over two ties in the round of 16. But now they’ll face a real test in the form of Benfica, who have overturned a 1-0 deficit against Dinamo Zagreb away in the round of 16 to make it 3-1 on aggregate on their road to the quarters.
Based on each of the side’s performances until stage, we could see this match go either way, so we’re going to go with a draw with goals – this seem to be the most certain bet with Europa League betting odds quarter finals.
Slavia Prague v Chelsea – H 5.75 (19/4) D 3.80 (14/5) A 1.70 (7/10)
There’s no surprise really why Chelsea are the favourites for this one, per providers of internet betting in EU. The Blues topped their group (L) and eased through Malmo in the round of 32 and then Dynamo Kyiv in the last 16.
Despite failing to make their presence known domestically, in the Premier League this season, Chelsea are one of the favourites to reach the Europa League final in Baku.
The Stamford Bridge side has already won this competition in 2012/13, just a year after their historic Champions League triumph against Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena. Safe to say, we’re backing Chelsea to win this game.
Villarreal v Valencia – H 2.80 (9/5) D 3.30 (23/10) A 2.75 (7/4)
And lastly, it’s a tie between two Spanish sides, both of whom have shown quality so far in their respective encounters. Spanish teams have a great tradition of winning the Europa League (and the former UEFA Cup), having won the competition on 9 occasions in the last 15 years.
The bulk of those triumphs was claimed by Sevilla (5), followed by defending champions Atletico Madrid (3) and Valencia (1), which is why the latter side is also among the top dogs to win the Europa League this campaign
We reckon the first leg will be tough battle that will possibly end goalless, but in the return leg Valencia should have the upper edge to finish the game and progress to the semi finals.
