Arsenal vs Watford Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Arsenal entered into the game after having suffered a 2-1 loss against Brighton last weekend. Chris Hughton’s men took advantage of Arsenal’s defensive mistakes to score through Lewis Dunk and Glen Murray in the first 26 minutes. Even though Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang helped Arsenal get a goal back just before half-time, Brighton secured a win. In the midweek, however, Arsenal picked up a first win in five games after beating AC Milan 2-0 in the first leg of the Europa League knockouts. Watford picked up a narrow 1-0 win over West Brom in their recent game. Troy Deeney was once again the hero for the Hornets, as he scored with 13 minutes of normal time left.

Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

The recent form for Watford started with the surprise home win over Chelsea, but the club has been quite mediocre when it comes to away matches this season. In fact, Watford’s seven-game winless run on the road will sound sweet for Arsenal, who have picked up 10 wins in 14 home games. Watford are no strangers to getting wins at Emirates after managing two wins in their last three visits to this ground. Even then, I would back Arsenal to build on the win over Milan and win at half-time and full-time. This Watford team has been unable to score in four away matches. Arsenal may not seem like the best team to take advantage of this form, but the team might just be able to pull off a strong defensive performance – considering the stake. Arsenal’s last clean sheet at home came in the middle of December, but I see an attractive price on offer to back an Arsenal clean sheet.

Arsenal win at half-time and full-time – 11/10

Arsenal clean sheet – 6/4

Arsenal saw over 1.5 goals in 8 out of their last 10 games played

Arsenal scored over 2.5 goals in 6 out of their last 10 games played against Watford

Watford saw over 1.5 goals in 10 out of their last 10 games played against Arsenal

Arsenal Preview

The victory over AC Milan could not have come at a crucial time for Arsene Wenger and his team. A large section of the Arsenal supporters have been voicing for the departure of the Frenchman, and their reasoning seemed justifiable after witnessing four consecutive defeats for Arsenal in all competitions. Another defeat against Milan would have effectively concluded their campaign in the first week of March. As it stands, Arsenal can use the first leg victory to reach the quarter-finals and also rediscover the winning form in the league. Since his January move, Aubameyang has scored two goals in four league games.

Arsenal Team News

Nacho Monreal (back), Callum Chambers, Hector Bellerin (knee), Sead Kolasinac (ankle), Alexandre Lacazette (knee), and Santi Cazorla (Achilles tendon) are the players unavailable for selection.

Watford Preview

Watford have hit the psychological mark of 36 points which almost guarantees them safety for the campaign. However, Javi Garcia insisted that he would not let his players drop their heads and focus on the beach. A brilliant run of form over the last couple of weeks have now put Watford into the top 10 places. They now have an outside chance of overtaking Arsenal and qualifying for Europe next season, as the gunners are only nine points ahead – with nine games left in the season.

Watford Team News

Jerome Sinclair (muscle), Kiko (illness), Gerard Deulofeu (foot), José Holebas (ankle), Tommy Hoban (cruciate ligament), and Christian Kabasele (hamstring) are missing from action for Watford.
