They are sitting 4<sup>th</sup> in the Bundesliga standings, 4 points clear off 5<sup>th</sup>-placed Monchengladbach and they are just few rounds away from earning a Champions League spot. Their attacking trio are scoring goals for fun this term netting 40 goals between them in 28 domestic league matches, which is simply amazing. The only player piece of the puzzle doubtful for this clash is Haller but till Thursday thereโ€™s plenty of time for him to recover and feature in the starting XI. On the other side, Benfica are flying high in their domestic league, sitting 1<sup>st</sup> in the standing equal on points with FC Porto. They scored 77 goals in 28 Primeira Liga fixtures this season with Haris Seferrovic leading the chart with 18 goals netted. Two of their best players, Jonas and Salvio are ruled-out for this match, 1<sup>st</sup> suspended due to yellow cards and the 2<sup>nd</sup> one injured. We expect a high-scoring affair with goals from both sides and at least 3 goals in the match.</p><p><a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=acd6b93a-905e-45af-90ef-7eb1df661829" target="_blank" title="Europa League Betting Odds"><em><strong>Best tip for the match: Both teams to score and over 2.5 goals at 2.2 with Coral</strong></em></a></p><p>[/]{"component": "embedHTML", "code": "&lt;blockquote class=\"twitter-tweet\" data-lang=\"en\"&gt;&lt;p lang=\"en\" dir=\"ltr\"&gt;Morning, Eagles!๐Ÿฆ… &lt;br /&gt;Only 2๏ธโƒฃ days to go until the &lt;a href=\"https://twitter.com/EuropaLeague?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;@EuropaLeague&lt;/a&gt; clash with &lt;a href=\"https://twitter.com/slbenfica_en?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;@slbenfica_en&lt;/a&gt;.๐Ÿ”ฅ&lt;a href=\"https://twitter.com/hashtag/SGEuropa?src=hash&amp;amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;#SGEuropa&lt;/a&gt; &lt;a href=\"https://twitter.com/hashtag/BenficaSGE?src=hash&amp;amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;#BenficaSGE&lt;/a&gt; &lt;a href=\"https://t.co/ag3uYOy3ZC\"&gt;pic.twitter.com/ag3uYOy3ZC&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/p&gt;โ€” Eintracht Frankfurt (@eintracht_eng) &lt;a href=\"https://twitter.com/eintracht_eng/status/1115500284556582912?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;April 9, 2019&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/blockquote&gt;\n&lt;script async src=\"https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js\" charset=\"utf-8\"&gt;&lt;/script&gt;\n"}[/]</p><h2>Arsenal vs Napoli</h2><p><strong>Thursday, April 11, Emirates Stadium</strong></p><p>Arsenal host Napoli in the 1<sup>st</sup> leg of the Europa League quarter finals but this match could easily be a Champions League game. We expect a thrilling match between 2 attacking sides. Arsenal know they have poor away record across all competitions and they will try to push for the win. They are another animal in front of their fans. They only lost 2 home matches this season, both of them in the English cups. They enter this match on the back of 7 consecutive wins in Premier League and Europa League scoring 19 goals in the process, averaging almost 3 goals scored per match. On the other side, Napoliโ€™s main objective for this end of the season is to lift the Europa League trophy. For both teams, Europa League is the last chance for silverware this term. Napoli are way better this season under Carlo Ancelotti, they are very organized, deadly on the break, creative very efficient. We expect an entertaining match with both teams ready to show us that their place is in Champions League.</p><p><a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=df66db4b-b019-4343-9fc7-6c4f20e2a356" target="_blank" title="Europa League Betting Odds"><em><strong>Best tip for the match: Both teams to score and over 2.5 goals at 1.9 with PaddyPower</strong></em></a></p><p>[/]{"component": "embedHTML", "code": "&lt;blockquote class=\"twitter-tweet\" data-lang=\"en\"&gt;&lt;p lang=\"en\" dir=\"ltr\"&gt;๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ฆ &lt;a href=\"https://twitter.com/Aubameyang7?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;@Aubameyang7&lt;/a&gt; in the &lt;a href=\"https://twitter.com/EuropaLeague?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;@EuropaLeague&lt;/a&gt; this season...&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;๐Ÿ† Seven matches&lt;br /&gt;โšฝ๏ธ Four goals&lt;br /&gt;๐Ÿ…ฐ๏ธ Two assists&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;๐Ÿคž Fingers crossed for more of the same in our &lt;a href=\"https://twitter.com/hashtag/UEL?src=hash&amp;amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;#UEL&lt;/a&gt; quarter-final!&lt;a href=\"https://t.co/WrVuPpiRER\"&gt;pic.twitter.com/WrVuPpiRER&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/p&gt;โ€” Arsenal FC (@Arsenal) &lt;a href=\"https://twitter.com/Arsenal/status/1115577155818283008?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;April 9, 2019&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/blockquote&gt;\n&lt;script async src=\"https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js\" charset=\"utf-8\"&gt;&lt;/script&gt;\n"}[/]</p><h2>Slavia Prague vs Chelsea</h2><p><strong>Thursday, April 11, Sinobo Stadium</strong></p><p>Slavia Prague pulled off one of the biggest upsets this season in Europa League, knocking-out Sevilla, the teams with the most UEL experienced in recent years. They played with their heart and their fans were amazing, acting like the 12<sup>th</sup> player, pushing them 120 minutes and helping them to write history. But letโ€™s also admit, Sevilla were very poor defensively which will not happen with Chelsea. The visitors are very strong right now and determined to win the competition. Many experts are expecting them to rest some of their key players as they are playing Liverpool on Sunday but Europa League might be their only chance to win a trophy and qualify and earn a Champions League spot for next season so they will not neglect this competition. They might rest 2,3 players but they have a strong bench and they should have enough to win the 1<sup>st</sup> leg on the road.</p><p><a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18" target="_blank" title="Europa League Betting Odds"><em><strong>Best tip for the match: Chelsea to win the match at 1.7 with Bet365.</strong></em></a></p><p>[/]{"component": "embedHTML", "code": "&lt;blockquote class=\"twitter-tweet\" data-lang=\"en\"&gt;&lt;p lang=\"en\" dir=\"ltr\"&gt;๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฟ Slavia ๐Ÿ†š Chelsea ๐Ÿด๓ ง๓ ข๓ ฅ๓ ฎ๓ ง๓ ฟ&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Pick your winner ๐Ÿ‘‰_____________&lt;a href=\"https://twitter.com/hashtag/UEL?src=hash&amp;amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;#UEL&lt;/a&gt; &lt;a href=\"https://t.co/8o35naqmpo\"&gt;pic.twitter.com/8o35naqmpo&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/p&gt;โ€” UEFA Europa League (@EuropaLeague) &lt;a href=\"https://twitter.com/EuropaLeague/status/1115585149545144320?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;April 9, 2019&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/blockquote&gt;\n&lt;script async src=\"https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js\" charset=\"utf-8\"&gt;&lt;/script&gt;\n"}[/]</p>
