Defending an unbeaten record of 21 games (16 wins and five draws) seems to be Arsenal’s sole interest in this Thursday’s clash against the Qarabag on Thursday. The match is part of the schedule of the sixth round – last – of the group stage of the Europa League season 2018/2019. It will be held at the Emirates Stadium in London, starting at 18h (Brasília time).With 13 points earned (four wins and a draw), the Gunners not only secured the classification for the second round of the tournament but also the first position of the E-key. Second place is Sporting, which has ten points (three wins, one draw and a loss). Eliminated are Vorskla and Qarabag, who with three points share third place.
On Saturday, December 8, Arsenal added another game in their unbeaten run by scoring 1-0 at Huddersfield, also at Emirates Stadium, for the sixteenth round of the English Premier League. He reached 34 points (ten wins, four draws and two losses). It ranks fifth in the leaderboard.The score, however, is the same as that of Chelsea, who in the fourth place closes the classification zone for edition 2019/2020 of the Champions League of Europe through the Premier League. The Gunners, however, are at a disadvantage in the tiebreaker criteria.Despite the unbeaten record, coach Unai Emery should not give up planning. So, as you have done in the Europa League, you should put on the field an entirely reserve team. It will preserve its best players for Sunday’s duel, December 16, at St. Mary’s, against Southampton. It will be the beginning of a marathon with games in short intervals involving English Championship and League Cup of England.In addition to strategic issues, Emery has medical limitations to define escalation. Defenders Rob Holding, Konstantinos Mavropanos and Shkodran Mustafi are in the ward; the midfielders Mesut Ozil and Aaron Ramsey; and striker Danny Welbeck.
After being ruthlessly beaten by Sporting by 6 to 1 in the fifth round of the Europa League at home, Qaragab probably has as main goal in the match against Arsenal to bid farewell to the tournament without being again thrashed.Although after the failure before the Portuguese was quick to give an answer to their fans. On December 3, for the Azerbaijan Championship at home, he thrashed Keshla 5-1. On Sunday, December 9, as a visitor, he scored 6-0 at Zira.He thus achieved the 30-point mark (nine wins, three draws and two losses). He is the vice-leader of the tournament. It has three points less than Netci Baku, who will be his next rival in the competition. The game, however, only happens in February when the tournaments were resumed.

The Azerbaijani football calendar puts Qarabag on holiday. After the confrontation with Arsenal players will be dismissed for the off period. Thus, compliance with the Europa League table is most likely not among their priorities. In this way, the task of Arsenal, who would be favorite in any situation, should be even more quiet. Thus, the prognosis in the victory of the English is fortacelic for the meeting of this Thursday in London.
