Arsenal v Guimaraes Betting Tips & Predictions
Arsenal would prefer to be involved in the Champions League this season, although the Gunners finished just outside the top four in the Premier League last term and also got thumped by Chelsea in the Europa League final which means they are in this competition instead.
Unai Emery’s side are finding life very comfortable in Group F, with the London side winning 3-0 away to Eintracht Frankfurt before a facile triumph over Standard Liege which saw Arsenal leading 3-0 after 22 minutes.
Emery will want to get qualification to the knockout stage sorted quickly and they should have few problems maintaining their 100% record against a Vitória de Guimarães side who have failed to get a point on the board thus far.
The Portuguese club were beaten 2-0 in Belgium in their group opener before losing 1-0 at home to Eintracht Frankfurt and this lack of goals in Europe is clearly a concern ahead of this trip to the Emirates.
So we’re looking at a team who have scored seven goals without conceding any, along with a side who have conceded three and failed to score. It’s looking like a home banker of a win.
Unfortunately, the odds are fairly short for those recreational punters who want to get a bigger return and we have found a bet at odds-against instead. Arsenal are 2.20 to win the game without conceding and there’s a strong chance of that happening.
This will be another chance for players such as Joe Willock, Gabriel Martinelli and Bukayo Saka to make an impact, while Emery likes to fold in some of the more experienced squad members to add a bit of steel.
Vitória de Guimarães will have wanted points on the board before this double header against Arsenal and could be out of their depth in this game.
