Arsenal v Cologne Betting Tips & Predictions | UEFA Europa League Match Preview
14 September 2017 – 20:05, Emirates Stadium, London.
Match Preview & Team News
For the first time in history Arsenal find themselves in the Europa League after what was a terrible season last time out for them with the only bright spark being their FA Cup win. A poor start to to the season saw them lose to Stoke City and on the receiving end of a 4-0 hammering by Liverpool. They were better on Saturday when they beat AFC Bournemouth 3-0 with a Danny Welback double but in all honesty it was a poor test for the Gunners. They do have good home form however with six straight competitive wins.
Cologne meanwhile had a fantastic season last time out but they have started poorly this season with them sitting bottom of the Bundesliga table after three games with no points and just a single goal scored. During that time they have conceded a rather poor seven goals. They have only managed to win once in their last nine away games in competitive action and that came in the DFB Pokal Cup against a side several divisions below them.
Full Time Winner Odds & Prediction
The bookies are touting Arsenal as clear favourites which is understandable but they come at slightly higher odds than you may imagine (3/10 for the win) after they have made a poor start to the new season. We do think some players will be rested for the hosts with the trip to Chelsea in mind at the weekend but -1.5 asian handicap should still be great value here at 1/1.
Goals Market Prediction
With an average of just 0.33 goals per game we don’t see Cologne causing all too much of a threat even against a fragile Arsenal defence and “both teams to score – no” is our banker here at 7/10. As previously mentioned we do think Arsene Wenger will rest certain players and that has played into our correct score prediction which is slightly lower than it may have been with a 2-0 Arsenal win at huge odds of 5/1 with bet365.
