On April 15 2019 at 20:00 at the Vicarage Road Stadium in the upcoming regular match of the 34th game week of the English national elite division Premier League the local Watford will play against their guests Arsenal. This will be the match between the representatives of the first half of the standings. Both teams are really eager to win and that is why we expect them to be rather spectacular.
Watford were in the final of the FA Cup not long ago and now they are on the tenth position in the standings with 46 points gained and 47:47 goal difference. In the latest matches of the season they predictably lost to Manchester United 1:2 and Manchester City 1:3 and were also outplayed by Liverpool 0:5. Yet, at the same time they managed to win playing against Fulham 4:1 and Leicester 2:1.
As for Arsenal, they are trying their best to take their place in the top four of the English championship and they are also competing for the Europa League cup. This kind of a schedule makes the Gunners really tired. Now they are only on the fifth position in the standings with 65:40 goal difference. In the latest matches of the national championship the Gunners lost to Everton 0:1 while before that they won against Newcastle 2:0, Manchester United 2:0 and Bournemouth 5:1 and also drew Tottenham 1:1.
The guests are considered to be the favorites of the upcoming match and yet not the obvious ones. They are to play their second leg game in the Europa League soon and that is why they may use the rotation of the squad. The solid Watford may use this fact and gain points playing against the grands at their domestic stadium.
