Arsenal take a 3-1 to Valencia on Thursday evening where the Gunners hope to book their place in this season's Europa League final.

The first leg at the Emirates last week was an entertaining affair with Los Che scoring first before Unai Emery's men hit back to secure an important win for the manager against his former club. 

Latest odds

Only Barcelona and Atletico Madrid have lost fewer home La Liga matches than Valencia this term, with Marcelino's side having been defeated just twice in the Primera Division in front of their own fans.

In the Europa League, Los Che are unbeaten in their last 11 home games, recording nine wins and two draws. Another success for the Spanish side is priced at 17/20 (1.85) with William Hill, while Arsenal are at 14/5 (3.80) and the draw at 29/10 (3.90).

Team news

Valencia are without midfielder Geoffrey Kondogbia and winger Dennis Cheryshev, but otherwise have no major injury concerns.

Arsenal head to the east coast of Spain without Aaron Ramsey, Dennis Suarez and Hector Bellerin.

Preview

Valencia have played 28 home matches in all competitions this season, yet only in five of those games did they obtain a result which would see them progress on Thursday.

They have also won three home games by a 3-1 scoreline, which would force extra time against the Gunners. It is a tough challenge but one which they will believe they are capable of overcoming, roared on by an expectant crowd at one of the most iconic venues in Spanish football.

Goals should surely flow, with Valencia scoring at least twice in six of their last eight games in all competitions and Arsenal netting in five of their six away games in this season's Europa League.

Tips and predictions

Both teams to score and over 2.5 goals pays out at 17/20 (1.85) and this proved a comfortable winner in the first leg.

Indeed, this selection has been consistently profitable over the last month in these two teams' respective matches, paying out in four of Valencia's last five games and in three of Arsenal's last five.
