IT’S a must win game for Arsenal as they bid to remain in the Champions League. Chris Graham (@chrisgraham79) previews their Dinamo Zagreb clash.
Arsenal v Dinamo Zagreb | Tuesday 19:45 | BT Sport Europe
Arsenal’s defeat in Zagreb in September looks increasingly worse the more you look at it. It’s fair to say that Zagreb are one of the weaker sides to reach the Champions League group stages and Arsenal’s casual approach that night has proved incredibly expensive.
True, Dinamo are a much better outfit at home as their incredible domestic record proves but it was no huge surprise to see Olympiakos winning there on Matchday 3 by the odd goal. Arsenal should never be in this position.
Arsenal’s season is developing into another episode of ‘Casualty’ with a spate of injuries cropping up in November. Saturday’s defeat at West Brom means it’s just one win in five in all competitions for Arsene Wenger’s side.
But however bad Arsenal’s injury crisis and fragile November confidence is they should be too strong for the Croatian side. This is a side that drew 1-1 at home with Luxembourg champions Fola Esch earlier in the campaign, a side who lost to Celtic last season and who were tore apart 5-1 by Red Bull Salzburg at home.
Yes, Arsenal will win here but there’s not much value kicking about as the layers expect a comfortable victory for the Gunners. Arsenal and Over 2.5 is 8/13 and even Arsenal -2 on the Asian Handicap is 15/13.
A reasonably priced bet is Arsenal to win to nil at 11/10 with Skybet. As we’ve ascertained this Zagreb side are fairly poor and bar their win over Arsenal in September have won just one other goal in this group. I’ll go for that.
