Arsenal’s Emirates Stadium will host the second game for the Gunners in the Champions League. Greek side Olympiakos will travel to London in the attempt to win their first points in this season’s Champions League group stage.
Arsene Wenger has huge problems for this game due to injuries and Olympiakos’ manager Valverde says his team didn’t travel to London just to spend 90 minutes on the pitch and that they also want to get something out of this game. This would be the best moment for them to do that given the slim squad The Gunners have.
The betting arenas found Arsenal favourites for this game despite the very big number of absentees in Arsenal’s squad. The Gunners were rated with a 1.4 odd of winning, while Olympiakos have a 7 odd of winning the game.
It seems an easy win when you look at the names of the two teams, but take into consideration that Wilshere, Diaby, Squillaci, Djourou, Vermaelen, Koscielny, Walcott, Gervinho and Benayoun are all out for today’s game.
Despite all that I’d still advise you to place your football bets on Arsenal, even though completely avoiding the match wouldn’t harm anybody!
