Former Arsenal and Villareal player Santi Cazorla makes his prediction on Arsenal and Villareal tie.

 Cazorla makes his prediction on Arsenal and Villareal tie.

The former Arsenal player Santi Cazorla spent 8 years at Villareal. He caught the attention of the former Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger after his one season at Malaga helped the team qualify for the Champions League, for the only time in their club’s history.

Wenger snapped the player following his fine displays and after six seasons, he went to Villarreal who awarded the Spaniard a two-year contract.

He then spent one season at Malaga, where he helped to qualify for the Champions League for the only time in their history, but was immediately snapped up by Arsene Wenger.

Santi loves both clubs, and it becomes difficult in his situation to chose between the two. While giving his verdict on the upcoming tie, Cazorla said:

“Arsenal have a squad that could fight for the top five in England but this year, because of injuries, it has not been functioning in the Premier League.”

“I have watched some matches and I really don’t understand this situation.

“Maybe pressure affects the players, this is the only explanation for me.

“I don’t have any doubts about either bench — Unai Emery is a big coach who has demonstrated his level at other clubs and Mikel Arteta, although he is new in the past year or so, has much experience as player.”

“This match is emotional and special because Villarreal and Arsenal are the two clubs of my life,” he added.

“Now, it is impossible for me to choose a winner but I am happy that one of them will get to the final and if they were to beat Manchester United there it would be sensational.

“The round is 50/50.

“Neither club is enjoying a ‘regular’ season but this semi-final is key to both team’s campaigns for several reasons, and being in the final and back in the Champions League is a huge motivation for any player.

“That’s normal and maybe that will give them a boost.

“Playing the second leg in London is not as decisive as it would have been before the coronavirus situation and I expect two matches with lots of emotion and fight, and for the team with the best defensive line to win.”
