Arsenal vs Slavia Prague Betting Tips
Arsenal have supposedly been handed an easy quarter final Europa League draw although it perhaps looks a tougher assignment when you consider that Slavia Prague have knocked out Leicester City and Glasgow Rangers in the previous two rounds.
The Gunners will hope to glean some kind of first leg advantage at the Emirates Stadium, although an empty ground might not necessarily bring about a positive result and our betting team is to back the Czech team with a one-goal start.
Arsenal Big Betting Favourites to Beat Slavia
Mikel Arteta’s side are strong betting favourites to win this match on 8 April 2021, although it’s hard to trust Arsenal at such short odds and our prediction is that they might struggle against opponents who have thrived as outsiders in the previous two rounds.
The Gunners have only won six of their fourteen games at home in the Premier League and they are prone to defensive lapses, with Olympiacos scoring home and away in the previous round and the same applied to Benfica the round before.
Arteta will want his team to go out in search of goals but continues to struggle to find his best starting 11 and we’re not convinced they should be such short betting odds.
Slavia Prague Ready For Another British Scalp
Although Slavia Prague are not a household name in European football, the visitors look a good bet with the Asian Handicap one-goal advantage and that means that the Czech team simply need to avoid a defeat by two goals or more.
If Slavia lose by a single goal, then you will get money back and a draw or better for the away team will mean a winning bet, with that recent 2-0 win at Ibrox laying a blueprint for a team who shut out the Scottish champions home and away.
