We would like to bring to your attention our forecast and options for betting on the match that will take place on March 21st. Who will be closer to victory and how will the teams play in attack?
Few could have predicted that West Ham would qualify for a place in the TOP-4 of the Premier League standings and a direct ticket to the Champions League. But the Hammers, led by David Moyes, are having a great season, consistently gaining points.
"West Ham" are currently fifth, three points behind "Chelsea", with one game remaining. The position of the team could have been more comfortable, but it was spoiled by the defeats in the matches with "Manchester City" (1:2) and "Manchester United" (0:1) in the last round. Between these bouts, the "Hammers" have secured their 14th win of the season, beating "Leeds" at home (2-0).
Upcoming Predictions for Football
"Arsenal" still have a mathematical chance of getting into the TOP-4, from which they distanced themselves by ten points. But the victory in the Europa League looks more real for the "Gunners", where Mikel Arteta's wards made it to the quarterfinals.
After the away victory over "Olympiacos" (3:1) in Greece, the "Gunners" lost to their opponents at home (0:1), defending their advantage. "Arsenal" are tenth in the English championship. In the last round of the Premier League, the team was marked by a victory over "Tottenham" (2:1) in the derby, which became the 12th in the current league season.
Despite their different status, "Hammer men" and "Gunners" now solve different problems. If "West Ham" does lose points, it does so in confrontations with the leaders of the standings, to which "Arsenal" does not belong now.
But the "Gunners" still amuse themselves with a reliable approach to the first four, and the victory over "Tottenham" in the last round left a positive impression on the team of Mikel Arteta. In our opinion, the guests who played the Europa League match in economy mode will be closer to victory in the upcoming derby.
Our prediction is that "Arsenal" will win with a handicap (-1.5) with the odds of 4.9 on 1xbet.
