Arsenal v CSKA Moscow: Gunners looking to get job done at home
Arsenal are almost certainly going to miss out on the top four this season. That makes progress in the Europa League vital, starting with tonight’s quarter-final first-leg against CSKA Moscow.
The Gunners have racked up four straight wins and are 3/10 favourites.
CSKA are in good form too. They’re also on a four-game winning run. But their poor record in England makes them 10/1 outsiders on the night.
The draw is 21/5.
Arsenal have only conceded one goal in their last four outings. It’s 21/20 that they Win to Nil at the Emirates.
They’ll want to make home advantage count. A trip to Russia is never easy at the best of times.
But Arsenal’s dire away record makes it even more important that they get a good result here. They’ve only won two of nine away games since New Year’s Eve.
A home win with a -1.0 Handicap is going for 10/11.
Arsene Wenger knows this competition is his club’s priority now. He’ll name his strongest possible team.
Alexandre Lacazette’s return to fitness is well-timed. The Frenchman is 10/3 as First Goalscorer.
You can also get Lacazette and Danny Welbeck to both get on the scoresheet at 4/1.
It’s been a frustrating season for Arsenal fans. But if their team wins tonight, there’s still a chance the campaign will end with silverware.
