Both teams to score-yes

Anytime Goal Scorers

Arsenal-Bukayo Saka- Saka tends to score in games which are physically tough and consigned to the midfield battles and so Saka has a good chance of scoring in a game such as this one.

Sporting Lisbon- Welinton Junior- Junior is fast and can be tricky against the run of play and so the Arsenal defenders will have to be on their toes to contain him.
