Arsenal have one foot in the Europa League last-16 draw after avoiding a potential banana skin in Sweden.

The Gunners negotiated snow drifts and playing on an unfamiliar 4G pitch at the Jamtkraft Arena to see off minnows Ostersunds 3-0.

It was a comfortable night for Arsene Wenger’s side and another is expected at the Emirates, so a repeat of that scoreline could be good value at 7/1 and kicks off our Arsenal vs Ostersunds betting predictions.

A Look At Arsenal’s Betting Odds

Arsenal had the first leg game wrapped up inside 24 minutes as they made their dominance count against a home side who started cautiously.

Nacho Monreal opened the scoring in the 14th minute before Sotirios Papagiannopoulos turned into his own goal 10 minutes later.

Mesut Ozil put the tie beyond Ostersunds’ reach with a third shortly after the interval, leaving Arsenal in complete control ahead of the return leg in London.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has vowed to take the second match seriously, saying: “We’ll try to win the game again.”

Aaron Ramsey (groin), Ozil (illness) and Alexandre Lacazette (knee) definitely miss out while Wenger has confirmed David Ospina will continue in goal and both Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Danny Welbeck will start.

The Gunners should have enough in reserve to ensure another routine win and, looking at the Arsenal vs Ostersunds odds, the hosts to be 2-0 ahead at half-time again appeals at 17/4.

A Look At Ostersunds’ Betting Odds

Despite enduring a tough start, Ostersunds gave a good account of themselves as they troubled Arsenal for periods of the first leg.

They wasted a golden chance to boost their hopes of pulling off a shock result at the Emirates when Tom Pettersson missed a last-minute penalty.

The Swedish side will relish the opportunity to play at a Premier League ground but the gulf in class will show again and we’re taking 17/4 for the hosts to win by exactly three goals in our Arsenal vs Ostersunds betting tips.
