We expect Arsenal to win 2-0 at 13.0 with bet365
Personally, we don’t quite understand these odds and think that an Arsenal win is more or less nailed on here – even with a weakened team.
The Gunners will be full of confidence after their 2-0 win over Tottenham on Sunday, and face an FC Koln side who have made one of the worst starts to a Bundesliga season in recent memory.
Afer 12 domestic matches the German side are still yet to win, having drawn twice and lost their other 10. They did win their last Europa League match against BATE a few weeks ago, but are bottom of the group nonetheless.
Back in September, a second string Arsenal side came from behind to beat them 3-1. We’re backing them to get the win to get the win in Cologne at 2.62 with bet365.
Wenger’s reserve side have impressed this season. They have already ensured Europa League qualification and need just a point to win the group, and have also reached the quarter-finals of the Carabao Cup.
Koln will be motivated and will welcome a break from the Bundesliga, but they don’t have the same quality as Arsenal. A 2-0 away win looks a great price at 13.0 with bet365.
Olivier Giroud should return up front for the Gunners after a thigh injury, and the Frenchman is our tip to score the first goal at 6.10 with Unibet.
Arsenal face Koln in the Europa League on Thursday night. The Gunners have already qualified from Group H, and need just a point in Germany to ensure top spot. Koln are bottom of the group and bottom of the Bundesliga.
After a successful 2016-17 campaign, Koln have had a nightmare so far and are yet to win a single match in the Bundesliga. They are also bottom of their Europa League group, but did beat BATE 5-2 last time out.
Koln Form: LLWLWD
The Gunners will be full of confidence after winning the North London derby against Tottenham on Saturday. Arsene Wenger will rest players, but the stand-ins have done well this season, already sealing Europa League qualification after four matches.
Arsenal Form: WLDWWW
The two teams have met three times before, most recently in the reverse fixture at the Emirates back in September when Arsenal won 3-1. Back in 1971 they won a game a piece in the UEFA Fairs’ Cup, with Koln prevailing on the away goals rule.
Olivier Giroud is expected to return for the Gunners after a thigh injury. Santi Cazorla is definitely out, whereas Theo Walcott is unlikely to feature due to an illness.
Away win: Arsenal win at 2.62 with bet365
