Arsenal begin their Champions League campaign with a trip to Montpelier on Tuesday night, and there are plenty of reasons to believe they are good value at 6/5 with GunnersGaming to get off to a winning start.

Arsène Wenger's side have never lost a game in France and have emerged victorious from five of their nine visits.

The Gunners go into the clash in top form after an emphatic 6-1 win over Southampton at the weekend, a win which extended their unbeaten start to the Premier League season and saw them climb into third.

By stark contrast, their opponents - who won their first-ever Ligue 1 title last season - have started in disappointing fashion after losing star striker Olivier Giroud to Emirates Stadium.

After five games they have just four points and lie in 16th place in the table after Friday's 3-1 defeat to newly-promoted Reims.

Arsenal emerged 1-0 winners at Marseille's Stade Velodrome in last season's group stage and a similar outcome could be on the cards in this encounter. You can get a 1-0 Arsenal victory at 4/1.

Wenger's side have also conceded only once this season - so there could be some value in the 29/20 on offer with GunnersGaming for the home side to draw a blank.

So who is going to get the all-important first goal? After a fine start to the season it is no surprise to see Lukas Podolski heading the betting at 11/2.

Gervinho, who picked up's Man of the Match award after his brace against Southampton, is an 8/1 shot, but the value may well lie with Santi Cazorla who can also be backed at a tempting 8/1.
