Valencia vs Arsenal: Lacazette, Aubameyang set to start for Gunners in Spain

- Valencia vs Arsenal's Europa League semifinal second leg encounter will hold on Thursday night, May 9

- Arsenal will go into this duel as favorites after winning the first leg tie 3-1 at the Emirates stadium

- Lacazette, Aubameyang, Mesut Ozil, Xhaka and Kolasinac are all expected to start for the Gunners

Frenchman Lacazette and Gabon star Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang have been predicted to start together for Premier League side Arsenal in their Europa League clash against Valencia.

Arsenal have already given themselves advantage towards reaching the final of the Europa League after beating Valencia 3-1 in the first leg at the Emirates stadium.

Unai Emery's men must now avoid a 2-0 defeat on Thursday night, May 9, for them to have the chance of reaching the final.

The Gunners are almost certainly out of the race to finish among the top four teams this season in the Premier League and winning the Europa will give them the chance to play in Champions League next term.

Arsenal are set on playing a 3-4-3 formation with under-fire Shkodran Mustafi starting in a back-three alongside Laurent Koscielny and Sokratis Papastathopoulos.

Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how Arsenal continued their dominance in the Europa League with a 3-1 win against Valencia on Thursday, May 2.

What looked like a shaky start after Moukhtar Diabaki put the visitors ahead ended up in a terrific night for the North London side as Alexandre Lacazette found the equalizer only six minutes later.

And from then on Arsenal relentlessly piled pressure on Valencia and really started asking questions of the La Liga team's defensive setup.
