GunnersGaming by Betsson, Arsenal’s Official Betting Partner, give us the rundown on some of the markets on offer ahead of Wednesday's return to European action against Marseille...
Wednesday sees the Gunners take on a Marseille side who find themselves in a similar situation. Despite slow starts in their respective domestic competitions both have begun their European campaigns strongly and will be hoping that form continues as they battle for qualification to the knockout stages.
Marseille’s impressive 3-0 home defeat of Borussia Dortmund is a reminder of just how tough an assignment a trip to the Stade Velodrome can be.
Neither side will want to give any ground away in the battle to qualify for the latter stages, with Arsène Wenger having already outlined the importance of the game to his side’s qualification hopes.
The Arsenal manager has targeted four points from the two fixtures against the French outfit, which he believes should be enough to see the Gunners progress. So with Arsenal looking for at least a draw from the away fixture, and Marseille expected to adopt a counter-attacking style, perhaps a scoring draw at 7/2 (4.50) could offer good value.
While an away draw would certainly be a favourable result, perhaps after Sunday’s win and Robin van Persie’s goalscoring heroics the Arsenal faithful might allow themselves to contemplate the idea of sneaking all three points. A 2-1 win is available at 15/2 (8.5).
Or what about the Gunners coming back from being behind at half time to win, available at 44/1 (45.0)?
