After thumping Lyon 6-0 in their first Emirates Cup clash, Arsenal round off the competition (of sorts) against Bundesliga runners up Wolfsburg.
Despite being heavily fancied to snare the spoils that would guarantee silverware-claiming success, the Gunners failing to win headlines our friendly treble, which pays out at 11/1.
Wolfsburg win or draw double-chance v Arsenal @ 6/5
Arsene Wenger’s side were rampant against Lyon in a game that resembled their Emirates Cup opener against Benfica 12 months ago.
Arsenal beat the Portuguese club 5-1 in a game so subverted from reality that even Yaya Sanogo scored a hat-trick.
A much-changed delegate then faced Monaco and were beaten 1-0.
The Lyon rout was only their second win across the previous four Emirates Cup editions, so they’re by no means staples against what is obviously a formidable outfit.
Sheffield United to beat Newcastle @ 12/5
This is the Magpies’ first match back in England after a transatlantic tour that didn’t reap too many rewards.
Atlas Guadalajara and the Portland Timbers both got the better of the north east side and Nigel Adkins’ Blades could feasibly inflict another loss upon them.
They’re three wins from three non-competitive clashes thus far and showed their ability to topple superior opposition when beating Fenerbahce in the final game of the 2014/15 pre-season.
QPR to beat Newport County @ 31/50
The men from Rodney Parade have a knee-knocking record in friendly matches, winning seven of their last eight, but the discrepancy between the R’s and the quality of foe they’ve been freely felling is enormous.
Among the bested are Undy Athletic, Weston-super-Mare and Carl Zeiss Jena.
PAOK Salonika and Monaco are the only teams able to get the better of Chris Ramsey’s men across their previous seven friendly fixtures, so don’t expect any hiccups here.
