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 match against Borussia Dortmund...
Arsenal are enjoying a real resurgence of form of late and now sit just three points away from third place in the Premier League, having won 10 of their last 12 games in all competitions.
Next up Emirates Stadium plays host to a vital Champions League clash against Borussia Dortmund.
The Germans head into the game on the back of a morale-boosting away win against current Bundesliga leaders Bayern Munich, whom they now trail in the Bundesliga by just two points. The Germans have only conceded twice in their last five games but have struggled on their European travels this season, conceding three times against both Marseille and Olympiacos.
Arsenal’s 1-1 draw in Dortmund now seems an eternity ago but with the German champions visiting London in desperate need of three points, it promises to be just as exciting. Arsenal soaked up plenty of pressure that night and while Gunners fans may be hoping for a more dominant display, such European nights are often decided on the counter-attack. That will suit the pace of Theo Walcott, and he is priced at an attractive 11/2 (6.5) to score in an Arsenal win.
Victory for the Gunners would guarantee their progression to the knockout stages and go a long way to securing the seeding that rewards the group winners. A 2-1 Arsenal win at 69/10 (7.9) looks good value, as does the Gunners to win and keep a clean sheet at 5/2 (3.5).
It is impossible to preview an Arsenal game at the moment without mentioning Robin van Persie, such is the form of the talismanic captain. The Dutchman has scored an incredible eight goals in the last month and already has 15 for the season - so it is no surprise that he is heavily fancied to add to that tally at Evens.
However, there would appear much better value in backing him to score more than 1.5 goals (something he has done on five occasions already this season) at 5/1 (6.0).
GunnersGaming would like to wish the team all the best against Borussia Dortmund. As an added incentive for tonight’s games, GunnersGaming are rewarding anyone that places a £5 Champions League combination bet with 2 free Scratch Cards!
