Every match in Group F looks very appealing, and today I like Arsenal to beat Marseille on the road after seeing Mesut Ozil fit in so well on the weekend.
After a strong performance on Saturday which saw it beat Sunderland on the road 2-0, Arsenal rolls into Marseille with a new air of confidence. That is because of how good German international Mesut Ozil looked in the Gunners' attack.
Because of that, odds for the English side in this game went down this week but are still decent at 2.40 to get the road win. Last season, Arsenal won in France when it defeated Montpellier 2-1 during the group stage and hasn't been eliminated at the group stage in 12 years. The draw/Arsenal pick in the double result brings that up to 6.00.
The outright draw is currently listed at 3.20 over at William Hill.
The home win is being offered just slightly above that at 3.30, and Marseille will need its new young cast to deliver today to keep competitive from the get go. It is Marseille's first time playing in the competition this decade as it has missed out on the last five seasons of the continent's top club tournament.
Outside of the 1x2 picks, I like the both teams to score pick here at 1.73. Both teams have scored in all of their domestic matches so far and neither are defensively oriented.
The over 2.5 is also attractive at 2.05 as every Arsenal match on the road in the Champions League hit that mark.
Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud knows Marseille well after spending years playing for Montpellier in Ligue 1. He will be expected to start today and has looked good so far this season. A Giroud goal looks appealing at 2.20.
