With a mountain to climb in Munich, Hugh Wilson is predicting Arsene Wenger’s men to start strong and has a 12/5 value bet on offer for the Champions League second legAfter a German invasion last month at the Emirates, Arsenal find themselves all but out of the Champions League as they succumbed to a 3-1 loss in the first leg against Bayern Munich.
Jupp Heynckes's men are in fine form this year, winning every single match in 2013.
Add this to the fact they have won their last 10 home Champions League matches, going back almost two years to the day when Inter Milan beat them, so the price of 2/5 (1.40) with Paddy power to win comes as no surprise. The same firm puts them at 1/14 (1.07) to qualify.
If you believe in miracles, then you can back Arsenal to qualify at 14/1 (15.00) with Paddy Power.
The Gunners almost pulled off the unthinkable in last season’s competition. Trailing AC Milan 4-0 from the first leg, they rallied to 3-0 by half time in the second leg, but couldn’t find one more goal to take it to extra time.
Wenger’s men are 7/1 (8.00) with Paddy Power to come out on top of this fixture. At first sight there may appear to be value in that outcome, but it’s tough to look past Bayern’s unbelievable home European record. The same firm offers 15/4 (3.75) for the draw.
Looking at the both teams to score market, the 4/5 (1.80) with Paddy Power seems like a brilliant price. Despite Arsenal’s lack of progression in the Champions league in recent years, they haven’t struggled to score.
The North Londoners have found the back of the net in seven of their last eight European away fixtures. With Bayern scoring in 14 consecutive home Champions League games, both teams to score is a bet not to miss out on.
If you’re looking for some value in this fixture, Arsenal to score first stands out.
The Gunners have scored first in their last two European away matches, and realistically, if they are to stand any chance of qualification, they will have to come out of the blocks quickly. Paddy Power offer 12/5 (3.40) for them to net first.
