Odds: Crvena Zvezda 18/5, Draw 27/10, Arsenal 18/25
Kick Off: 1800, 19/10/2017
Stadium: Stadion Rajko Mitic
TV: BT Sport
These two teams have both made encouraging starts to their Europa League Group H campaigns and the winner of this tie will be well on course to qualify for the latter stages.
Arsenal top the group after two wins from two and manager Arsene Wenger may decide not to risk too many of his star players in Belgrade ahead of Sunday’s Premier League trip to Everton.
Regardless of his team selection, though, the Gunners should have too much quality for the Serbian side and an away win at 18/25 is the first of our Crvena Zvezda vs Arsenal betting predictions.
A Look At Crvena Zvezda’s Betting Odds
Crvena Zvezda, or Red Star Belgrade as they are also known, made it all the way from the first round of qualifying to reach the group stage and they have not looked out of place so far.
A 1-1 draw at home to BATE Borisov was a solid start, even if it ended their run of four straight home wins in Europe, and their 1-0 victory at Cologne was even more impressive.
The result looked fortunate, with the Germans dominating possession and hitting the woodwork three times, but Crvena are clearly no pushovers.
We expect them to try and keep things tight before hitting Arsenal on the break and under 2.5 goals looks decent value at 19/20.
A Look At Arsenal’s Betting Odds
Wenger has made nine changes for both of Arsenal’s Europa League matches so far and has not paid the price so a weakened team can be expected to feature here.
Much could again depend on Theo Walcott and Olivier Giroud to break down the home defence and, in truth, a draw would be a decent result to keep Arsenal firmly on course to progress.
This could be a much more cagey affair than Arsenal’s opening two games, which have produced 10 goals, but we think the Gunners can produce at least one moment of quality.
The last of our Crvena Zvezda vs Arsenal betting tips is for Arsenal to win 1-0 at odds of 25/4.
Cologne 0-1 CRVENA ZVEZDA – Richmond Boakye
BATE Borisov 2-4 ARSENAL – Theo Walcott (2), Rob Holding, Olivier Giroud (pen)
Arsenal 1-1 Crvena Zvezda, Crvena Zvezda 1-0 Arsenal
