Arsenal would be looking to end this season with a trophy even if they fail to qualify for the Champions League and the Europa League is the only other trophy up for grabs for them.
The Gunners have struggled very much recently but their form in this competition hasn’t been bad and their win over Napoli at the last round would have significantly boosted their morale ahead of this game, however, Valencia is a different kind of challenge.
Valencia started their season slowly but they are currently playing well and making a late dash towards the last Champions League in the Spanish league table.
Despite failing to really make their mark in the Champions League, they have been impressive since they dropped down to the Europa League.
They have eliminated the likes of Celtic and Villarreal to get here. Having beaten Real Madrid this year, they would be confident that they can cause an upset in North London here.
Valencia has won 2 and lost just one of their last 5 matches with the Gunners.
