Arsenal vs Slavia Prague: Prediction and Betting Tips
Arsenal need to find their first-round form
The Gunners are winless in their last three matches. Having lost in the last match of the Europa League at home to Olympiacos, Mikel Arteta must be careful not to repeat that score against the Czech side. Arsenal have not been in good form apart from the second half of their match against West Ham.
In the Europa League this season, Arsenal have won all their six matches in the group stage scoring 20 goals and conceding five. In the knockout stage, Arsenal played Benfica and won 4-3 on aggregate. It was a close game in the round of 16 as well as the Gunners eliminated Olympiacos 3-2 on aggregate.
Mikel Arteta must work hard to raise his team’s morale after their last heavy defeat at the hands of Liverpool 3-0. Arsenal were dominated by their visitors and had 36% ball possession. This was the fifth time under Arteta that the Gunners have registered under 40% possession in the PL.
Slavia Prague on a very good UEL form
In their head-to-head with Arsenal, Slavia have lost their only visit to the Emirates in 2007 by 7-0. That is the heaviest defeat of the Czech team in Europe. But this team is much different and are in exceptional form having conceded just once in four UEL knockout games.
In the group stages, Slavia Prague finished second in Group C winning four games and losing two. The Czechs are unbeaten in 21 games in all competitions and have a great scoring record-beating both Leicester and Rangers 2-0 away from home in the knockout stages.
- Arsenal have won four of their five home matches in the UEL
- Arsenal have scored three or more goals in four of five home matches in the UEL
- Slavia Prague have won their last two away matches in the UEL
- Slavia Prague have scored two goals in each of their last two away matches in the UEL
Arsenal vs Slavia Prague Prediction
It can be a tricky match for Arsenal as the visitors are in great away form. The Gunners were too weak against Liverpool and that must be forgotten coming into this match.
With two clean sheets and four goals scored in their last two away matches and against strong teams, Slavia Prague must be taken very seriously by Mikel Arteta.
If we look at the goals to be scored in this match market, we find an odd of 1.53 on 2-4 goals in this match. Looking at both teams’ stats and capabilities we see a great possibility for that bet to be applied in this match.
