GunnersGaming by Betsson, Arsenal’s Official Betting Partner, give us the rundown on some of the markets on offer ahead of tonight’s match against AC Milan...
All eyes will be on Arsenal tonight as they travel to the San Siro to face AC Milan, with the added pressure of being the sole English side in action this week.
Thierry Henry is set to make his final bow in Milan as he prepares to travel back to New York on Thursday. The Club's record goalscorer has already provided the perfect finish to his time in the Premier League but will be desperate for a similar finale on the biggest stage of all.
When the sides met four years ago it was Arsenal who emerged 2-0 victors to progress, but those were the only goals in the tie as the first leg ended goalless. The Rossoneri currently sit top of Serie A and will be sure to provide a stern test of the Gunners' credentials. Away goals can be crucial in separating these tight affairs so Arsenal will certainly be looking to score. A score draw or better would without doubt represent an excellent night. Back them at 4/9 to find the target.
Arsenal will be hoping that the intensity and pace of their play will be too quick for some of Milan’s more experienced campaigners and a fast start would certainly set the tie up nicely. The Gunners are 7/5 (2.4) to score first and 5/2 (3.5) to score more than 1.5 goals.
However, the Italians pride themselves on keeping games tight defensively, so fewer than 1.5 goals in the match at 2/1 could be a possibility. GunnersGaming tip a 1-1 draw at a rewarding 4/1 (5.15). What about the same number of goals in each half at 3/5?
In honour of Henry we have created a number of special markets for the game. Do you think he will play more than 30 minutes at 7/2, cry at 9/1 or leave the pitch with his own shirt at 5/6? Or how about to finish his Arsenal career with another goal, priced at a very rewarding 29/5? Check out the markets we have available.
