After a very disappointing defeat in the Premier League at the weekend against Liverpool, they return to the Europa League looking for better fortune. They qualified for this round with a little bit of a hitch but face easier opponents on paper in Slavia Prague. On paper, this should be an easy task for Arteta’s men today. All the Arsenal players would be looking to fight for a win to put aside the bad results and look for qualification to Europe next season by winning this competition. Bet9ja have 1.56 odds, Bet365 has 1.55 odds and 1xBet has 1.59 odds.
Manchester United put up a decent good show by back from a goal behind against Brighton in the league to win. Back to the Europa League, Granada wouldn’t be able to stop the firepower of United’s attack and that is why we expect the Red Devils to win. Given that is an away fixture as well, we expect United to claim the win. Bet9ja have 1.58 odds, Bet365 has 1.53 odds and 1xBet has 1.60 odds.
Villarreal remain unbeaten in this competition and face a Dinamo Zagreb side that pulled a shocking result against Tottenham. However, Zagreb has a very poor record against Spanish sides which would play a vital role in this clash. Villarreal have won nine times in this competition this season and remain the favourites for this one, given their impressive record already in the competition. Bet9ja have 2.12 odds, Bet365 has 2.00 odds and 1xBet has 2.14 odds.
Over 2.5 Goals
Arsenal’s goal-scoring record in this competition has been impressive, with the Gunners failing just to score once in their run this season. Their opponents don’t shy away from scoring either and have averaged at least a goal per game in the competition. Both of these statistics have played a huge part in our selection as we see both teams who would try to edge each other out. Bet9ja has 1.86 odds, Bet365 has 1.90 odds and 1xBet has 1.92 odds.
The Ajax vs Roma tie has to be the most interesting in this round of fixtures this season as the game is more or less the hardest to call a winner. Both teams saw their previous opponents off easily and now face each other as the two favourites to win this competition. They both have highly rated attacking talent which would be on full display as both sides would be looking to end the tie early. Bet9ja has 1.64 odds, Bet365 has 1.66 odds and 1xBet has 1.73 odds.
Rashford has returned to the Manchester United squad and he did so in impressive style by scoring an equalizer which saw them win the game against Brighton at the end. He has been short of goals in the past weeks before the injury but looks rejuvenated and back to top form which could spell danger for a Granada defence about to face him. Bet9ja have 2.90 odds while Bet365 have 2.50.
His hat-trick against Tottenham saw Dinamo Zagreb qualify for the next round against all the odds and this made him their best scorer in European competitions. He has been impressive since the turn of the year and he doesn’t look like stopping. If Dinamo Zagreb are to get any chance of qualifying, he is the man for the job. Bet9ja have 4.75 odds while Bet365 have 4.75.
With Aubameyang failing to show up in the past few weeks, Lacazette has seemed to be somewhat of a saviour for the gunners during that period. They have a tough test of coming back from the defeat at the weekend against Liverpool but Lacazette has the ability to carry this team and step up to the task. Bet9ja have 2.10 odds while Bet365 have 2.00.
Increasing his consecutive goal tally to four in all club competitions, he is now a stable member in this pick. We cannot overemphasize his importance to his team in the past 2 months and he has the goals to prove it. Right now, we don’t see any side stopping him from scoring and he is a right pick here once again today. Bet9ja have 2.55 odds while Bet365 have 2.25.
Football Lover. All-round junkie of the beautiful game. Could be found watching football most of the time. If not he’s writing about them or making some punditry you don’t agree with. A certain bias for Arsenal and Santos FC.
