What Trueform says for Arsenal vs Qarabag
Arsenal have already wrapped up top spot in their Europa League pool but are still hard to oppose when hosting Qarabag at Emirates Stadium.
The visitors cannot qualify and went down 3-0 when these teams met in Azerbaijan back in early October, so there is no obvious reason for them to fare any better in London.
Unai Emery will again ring the changes but 7/5 for the hosts to prevail by more than two clear goals is still our opening Arsenal vs Qarabag prediction.
A Look At Arsenal’s Betting Odds
Two of Arsenal’s hot young prospects stole the show in a 3-0 win over Vorskla Poltava in Kiev that confirmed they will progress as Group E table toppers.
Emile Smith Rowe, 18, and 19-year-old Joe Willock hit the target either side of an Aaron Ramsey penalty as the Premier League outfit took command in the first half.
Smith Rowe, who also struck in the away victory over Qarabag, was denied a double in the Ukraine by a dubious offside decision and clearly has a bright future.
“He is a good example for the other young players,” said Emery. “We think they can help us but they need the confidence of playing matches, not only working with us in the training sessions.”
Fielding such enthusiastic fledglings could actually work in Arsenal’s favour again here, as they should be keen to make an impression, rather than looking to conserve energy in between more difficult domestic tests.
A Look At Qarabag’s Betting Odds
Abdellah Zoubir did manage to get on the scoresheet for Qarabag at home to Sporting on Matchday 5, but that was only a minor consolation in a 6-1 thrashing by the Portuguese team.
This will be their third trip to London in three years, following a 3-1 loss at Tottenham in 2015 and a 6-0 drubbing by Chelsea last September.
Spurs and the Blues both won to nil in Baku during those campaigns, so the omens really do not look good for Gurban Gurbanov’s men.
Let’s finish off our Arsenal vs Qarabag betting tips by taking 27/4 for the Gunners to match their 3-0 victories in Azerbaijan and Poltava.
