This is now officially Arsenal’s biggest game of the season so far as the trip to Valencia wil decide if we are still in with a chance of a trophy this season. It was at this time last year that we went to Atletico Madrid desperate for even a 0-0 draw to go through to the final, but alas it was not meant to be, and very few of us were surprised to be honest.
But this year we only need a draw or a defeat by one goal to ensure our progress, so I am feeling pretty sure that Unai Emery is going to park the proverbial bus until at least half-time, although one goal from us (like we did against Napoli) will stop the nerves completely.
We can have little confidence of coming away with the win given our current away form, but we shocked Napoli and we may be capable of doing the same again tonight. Valencia are odds on favourites with BetUK but Arsenal at 14/5 could be a very tasty bet if you are feeling brave.
With the comebacks from Liverpool and Tottenham making us Arsenal fans more nervous that usual, perhaps we should be considering that our opponents are seeing how well Premier League teams are playing and may be worried they could be in for a hammering? It is worth noting that Napoli are second in the very tough Serie A, but Valencia are only 5th in La Liga behind even Getafe as well as the top teams.
We have every chance of winning this, and hopefully setting up an all England Final in both European trophies.
