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 Olympiacos...
Arsenal enjoy the luxury of travelling to Greece safe in the knowledge that, with the group already sewn up, they can focus on other objectives. The infamous hostility of the Greek crowd will prove a stiff test of Arsenal’s squad depth and Arsène Wenger will be hoping that his players grasp their opportunity to shine. Whether they are potential stars of the future or older campaigners, this will prove an invaluable experience and opportunity for Champions League exposure.
The Greeks come into the game desperate for the win that would prolong their European adventures, although they are reliant on Marseille slipping up if they are to reach the Champions League knockout stages. Arsenal ground out a hard fought 2-1 win in the reverse fixture and will be hoping to finish the group undefeated. A 1-1 draw priced at 9/2 (5.5) would certainly provide an exciting end to the group and could see all three remaining teams finish level on seven points each.
Arsenal will be looking for the experienced players to control the game, and there looks great value in backing either Andrey Arshavin at 9/2 (5.5) or Thomas Vermaelen at 8/1 (9.0) to find the net. Another player who everyone will be expecting big things from is Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain - back the youngster to score in an Arsenal win at an attractive 13/2 (7.5).
If Arsenal’s supreme form has inspired confidence, why not get in early and back them to go all the way and win the Champions League? Back the Gunners at a rewarding 19/1 (20.0).
While Arsenal may have qualified, the other English teams still have it all to do. Check out our super odds section if you fancy Manchester City, Manchester United and Chelsea all to win, available at 13/5 (4.4). Or if you think Arsenal will be the only English team to progress, why not back that at 14/1 (15.0)?
