Standard Liege vs Arsenal Prediction: Europa League Match on 12.12.2019
Standard Liege greet Arsenal for the final match in group F on Thursday, with the Belgian side knowing only a win can keep their hopes of qualification alive.
Arsenal top the group and having beaten Standard 4-0 at the Emirates Stadium, they would have to suffer quite a big defeat in Liege to be at risk of not qualifying.
Standard are on seven points, and will hope that Eintracht Frankfurt on nine points fail to beat Vitoria de Guimaraes if they are to have any chance of going through.
Standard drew 1-1 with Vitoria last time out, while Arsenal lost 2-1 to Frankfurt at the Emirates in what turned out to be Unai Emery’s last game as head coach.
Standard are expected to be without Noe Dussenne until February 2020 after the defender suffered a cruciate ligament injury earlier this season.
Elsehwere, Anthony Limbombe and Orlanda Sa are also doubts and will be assessed before the match on Thursday.
Following Arsenal’s 3-1 win over West Ham at the London Stadium on Monday, Arsenal are without full-backs Hector Bellerin and Kieran Tierney.
Dani Ceballos is also expected to be out as he struggles with a hamstring injury, while Rob Holding is also being monitored day to day with a knee injury.
Standard Liege vs Arsenal Prediction
Arsenal finally secured a win on Monday after one of their longest runs without winning in 42 years.
This would have music to the ears of interim head coach Freddie Ljungberg, who earned his first win and will now be eyeing an opportunity to build against Standard this week.
For Liege, they missed a chance to put pressure on Frankfurt and Arsenal last week with a draw against Vitoria, while they also haven’t been in the best domestic form.
With confidence resurgent, expect Arsenal to run out 3-1 winners and secure top spot in the group.
