Former Spanish star, Santi Cazorla has named Arsenal as one of the favourites to win the Uefa Europa League this season.
The other club according to Cazorla is Villareal.
This is coming ahead of the second leg of the game between Arsenal and Villarreal set to take place this Thursday.
It would take a miracle for the Gunners to bounce back to defeat Villarreal this week after they lost the first leg with a 2-1 scoreline.
However, Cazorla believes one of the two clubs will make it to the final and win the title. He however stressed that he would have loved to see both clubs go head to head in the finals.
Speaking to UEFA, Cazorla, who is a former Arsenal and Villarreal player, said his feelings for both clubs are so huge that it’s difficult for him to choose one or the other.
“I would have liked for this tie to be the final as I would know at least the winner would lift the trophy,” he added.
He stressed that the feelings of watching both clubs play are going to be very beautiful, but he would feel very bad for the team that gets knocked out in the semi-final.
