Can Arsenal's young guns triumph again?
<div><div><div><div id=":on"><div id=":om"><div dir="ltr"><h2>Arsenal vs Vitoria</h2><p><a href="" rel="nofollow" target="_blank"><strong>Thursday, October 24, at The Emirates</strong></a></p><p>Arsenal have a big Monday night Premier League game against Sheff Utd, and that does not leave much time for the team to recover for this game. Unai Emery is therefore highly likely to shuffle his pack for the arrival of Portuguese side Vitoria. That is an exciting prospect for Arsenal fans. They have watched their young guns beat Eintracht Frankfurt 3-0 on the road and Standard Liege 4-0 at home during the Europa League group stage, and they will expect another exciting performance.</p><h2>Team News</h2><p>Gabriel Martinelli has been the star of the show for Arsenal in the Europa League so far. The Brazilian youngster scored a brilliant brace in that victory over Standard Liege and he is likely to continue up front. Joe Willock and Bukayo Saka will hope to be involved, and there could be a chance for Mesut Ozil to start. Shkodran Mustafi and Calum Chambers are likely to start at the back, with Emiliano Martinez in goal, while Ainsley Maitland-Niles might get a chance in his preferred midfield role.</p><p>Vitoria finished fifth in the Portuguese Primeira Liga last season and that is about the best they can hope for this term. They are struggling badly in the Europa League, having lost 2-0 to Standard Liege and 1-0 to Eintracht Frankfurt so far. That does not bode well for a visit to group leaders Arsenal. Leo Bonatini, on loan from Wolves, plays up front for Vitoria, flanked by Davidson and young Englishman Marcus Edwards, who could not make the grade at Tottenham. Key players Pedro Henrique, Andre Andre and Alhassan Wakaso have recently been out injured for Vitoria.</p><h2>Betting Analysis</h2><p>This looks like another game in which Arsenal’s exciting young guns will coast to victory. They have won both games in emphatic fashion so far, and they blew Nottingham Forest away in the EFL Cup, while Vitoria have lost both of their games to nil. They lack the quality to deal with Arsenal’s second string, and they could be caught out by the pace, movement and energy typically shown by the likes of Willock, Saka and Martinelli.</p><p><strong>Tip: <a href=";a=1ba923f3-5341-4bda-b457-0138ac61ae7a&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Betfred">Arsenal half-time / full-time at 1.80 (4/5) with Betfred</a></strong></p></div></div></div></div></div></div>
