GunnersGaming by Betsson, Arsenal’s Official Betting Partner, give us the rundown on some of the markets on offer ahead of tonight’s Champions league clash against AC Milan...
Arsenal suffered a night to forget in Milan and certainly have a mountain to climb if they are to turn around the 4-0 deficit. When the teams met four years ago, Arsenal progressed with to a 2-0 win. While a repeat of that at 8/1 won’t be enough, confidence-boosting wins against both Tottenham and Liverpool have ensured that a flicker of hope remains. Not only that, but the Gunners have scored 12 goals in their last two games at Emirates Stadium.
Milan warmed up for the tie with a 4-0 win at Palermo, the impressive Zlatan Ibrahimovic grabbing a hat-trick. If Arsène Wenger's side are to stand any chance it is imperative that they keep it tight. You can get 17/10 that the Italians fail to score.
However, with Arsenal in need of goals there are sure to be plenty of chances for both sides. Why not back more than 4.5 goals in the game at 22/5?
When Arsenal need goals there is one man in particular that leads the way. And with Robin van Persie having notched his 31st goal of the season on Saturday, would you be surprised if he came up with a hat-trick when it really mattered? The Dutchman is 28/1 to do just that.
With Arsenal facing a variety of fresh injury concerns, Wenger might opt to pack his side with attacking talent in their bid for goals. That could open the first goalscorer market right up, with Gervinho available at 8/1, Theo Walcott at 9/1, followed by Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Marouane Chamakh and Ju Young Park all available at 19/2.
If you fancy the Gunners to win then why not back them to do so by two goals or more, priced at a very attractive 5/2?
