As we head into the European Champion League finals, certainly the Arsenal Gunners will be missed, but they should be in good shape as a team in qualifying for a slot in the next year’s playoffs. They are a team that this season has impressive win streaks and then that halted with very difficult loss to Manchester Uni.ted.

Now the Reds of Liverpool need the points from this game in the worst way as so they can have an effect on the Champion League standings, and leave most fans guessing as to what EPL team will power their way to the top as United of Manchester will attempt to assure their 4th position by beating Aston Villa.

So in this EPL game with Arsenal and Liverpool what is really on the line?

The Gunners of Arsenal presently are in 3rd place but still in a very strange position as if they win they could take 2nd place but that could change once Manchester United plays later in that same day, especially if United wins, and if Arsenal losses then they would fall down to 4th in the rankings.

The Reds of Liverpool are in a strange position as after losing to United they now lack some 5 points to get in the run for the 4th ranking and the season only has 8 games left. Thus, if they lose again they could lose out completely in the Champion Leagues race.

If you Bet on Soccer at an Online sportsbook and you happen to be an Arsenal Gunners fan besides the fact that they had an impressive 2-0 win and then a tie in the round of 16 they have now been eliminated from the Euro. Thus, the team will now focus on their EPL games which to date has provided some great performances.

Their present position in the EPL is 4th and lately they have had six consecutive wins. After their loss in the Euro Champions League, they regrouped and won 2-1 over Newcastle. Their French player Giroud in their ultimate six game he has six goals in those same games.

If you’re a fan of the Reds of Liverpool you as the team are disappointed in the last game lost to United of Manchester as that busted the 5 game win streak, and that all began also with a loss to United that was back in December 2014 of this 2014-15 seasons.

The problems the Reds faced against United were that in the Midfield they lost control to the Manchester midfield trio of Fellaini, Carrick and Herrera. Now in this game the Reds will not have their Captain Gerrard playing as he got a red card in the last United game. However Liverpool will play a lot better in the midfield against the Gunners as they tend to come dismantled at times and have too many players in the forward area.

As major problem Liverpool faces in this game is the lack of key defensive players due to injuries, and that’s defense that allow no goals in 6 away games and they could suffer because of those injuries as the Gunners have some excellent headers on their roster.

This should be a very interesting match-up and the experts are predicting that the Gunners will hold back the charged Reds of Liverpool and take the win 1-0.
