Arsene Wenger’s reign at Arsenal will come to an end this season, as he has announced his intention to leave this summer. The fans may have been against him for some time, but now that he is leaving, they need to stand by him for the remaining months of his reign.
The players too are backing him, as they grabbed a superb 4-1 derby win over West Ham last weekend. This served as good make up for the loss to Newcastle the previous week.
The Gunners are now highly motivated for this clash. They know this might be their easiest route to Champions League game next season, they are 11 points behind Spurs in 4th and have Chelsea in between them and Spurs. It will take a miracle for Arsenal to finish anywhere near 4th.

Atletico Madrid have taken this competition seriously after going out from the group stage of the Champions League. Though they are second in table and have a slim chance of lifting the La Liga, they have Europa as an easier way to silverware.
Arsenal vs Atletico Madrid: Prediction
Atleti are a defensive side, but we don’t see the posibility of a Clean sheet in this game. Atletico Madrid have conceded in each of their last 8 trips while Arsenal have conceded in 12 of their last 14 games.
Atletico have netted in 9 of their last 12 trips while Arsenal have score in 12 of their last 14 games, so we fancy a both team to score prediction.
Also we are backing Wenger to grab a first leg win of 2-1.
