Arsenal vs Sporting Lisbon live stream: How to watch Europa League last 16 first leg online

This article provides information on how to live stream Arsenal vs Sporting Lisbon in the Europa League last 16 second leg on Thursday 16 March 2023.

After an open and entertaining first leg in Lisbon, this tie is perfectly poised ahead of the return meeting in north London. Arsenal broke the deadlock a week ago with William Saliba heading home a corner from close-range, only for Sporting to equalise in near-identical fashion, with Goncalo Inacio their scorer.

The hosts were then in the ascendancy early in the second half and deservedly took the lead through Paulinho’s rebound. Nevertheless, the Gunners equalised in very bizarre fashion with Granit Xhaka’s attempted through-ball flicking off the unfortunate Hidemasa Morita and nestling in the bottom corner.

So, 2-2 it finished at Estadio Jose Alvalade, meaning it is winner takes all here. Arsenal’s focus isn’t on this competition, given that they’re five points clear at the top of the Premier League, targeting a first title in 19 years.

On Sunday, Mikel Arteta’s team demolished Fulham 3-0 at Craven Cottage, with Gabriel, Gabriel Martinelli and then Martin Odegaard all on target in the first half. This made it five successive victories ahead of Sunday’s home game against Crystal Palace.

Sporting Clube de Portugal, meanwhile, aren’t enjoying their domestic season very much, sat fourth, five points below Braga in the final Champions League spot. As a result, Ruben Amorim has come in for plenty of criticism, so a victory here would do wonders for him. Sporting are winless in five visits to England, dating back to 2009, only winning three of 15 fixtures there overall.
