Arsenal vs FC Zurich prediction, betting tips & odds

Kick-off: 2000, 03/11/2022

Stadium: Emirates Stadium

TV: BT Sport

Arsenal have to beat FC Zurich to make sure of topping the Europa League Group A table and going straight through to the last 16.

The Gunners only prevailed 2-1 against the same opponents in Austria on Matchday 1 but did dominate proceedings, having 70 per cent of the possession.

We like 93/100 for a clinical home win to nil as our initial Arsenal vs FC Zurich prediction.

Arsenal Odds

Arsenal looked in complete control of this pool when following up two clean-sheet victories over Bodo/Glimt by beating PSV 1-0 at this venue.

However, last week’s 2-0 loss in Eindhoven means they still have a bit of work to do to avoid slipping into the knockout round play-offs.

Given that the group-stage runners-up will face a team dropping down from the Champions League, there is plenty of incentive to finish the job off.

Sunday’s 5-0 thrashing of Nottingham Forest put the Premier League leaders back in a positive frame of mind, even if that win was marred by an injury to Bukayo Saka.

Reiss Nelson made the most of his opportunity after replacing Saka on 27 minutes, hitting a double.

Those goals were his first Premier League strikes in 837 days after spending last season out on loan at Feyenoord and the aim now is to stay in the spotlight.

The 22-year-old’s current contract expires at the end of the season but he would love to extend his stay.

He said: “Any opportunity I get, I’m going to try and take and just do my very best and just keep helping the team.”

Looking at the 5/1 for Nelson to score the last goal in this contest.

FC Zurich Odds

Zurich still have a chance to finish third and remain in Europe via the Europa Conference League, but their form is far from impressive.

After losing 2-1 away to Bodo/Glimt, they were hammered 10-1 on aggregate across two thrashings by PSV.

Things have started to improve since Bo Henriksen was brought in to succeed Genesio Colatrella last month.

FCZ came from behind to edge out Bodo/Glimt 2-1 on home turf, with Antonio Marchesano grabbing a stoppage-time decider.

In the Swiss League, they won 1-0 at FC Sion on Sunday and have recently drawn 0-0 with Young Boys and Basel.

There was also a 4-1 home loss to Grasshoppers, though, and they are still bottom of their domestic table.

The Gunners may have one eye on Sunday’s Premier League trip to Chelsea but 18/5 for them to oblige by exactly three goals is added to our Arsenal vs FC Zurich betting tips.
