Looking prolific in attack but shaky at the back, Al Hain-Cole expects the Gunners to provide another entertaining spectacle against Hutter's men

Arsenal will be hoping to get their Europa League campaign off to a winning start when they travel to the Commerzbank-Arena to take on Eintracht Frankfurt on Thursday.

Unai Emery's men were beaten finalists in last season's competition, but are without a win in three games coming into this clash.

Nevertheless, having won nine and lost just one of their 12 previous group stage matches, they are 5/4 (2.25) favourites with bet365 to come out on top in Germany.

Die Adler suffered a penalty shootout defeat to champions Chelsea in last season's semi-final, but are available are 11/5 (3.20) to come out on top against another Premier League opponent.

Both of the guests' last two fixtures have resulted in draws, and you can get odds of 23/10 (3.30) on them settling for a single point yet again here.

Marco Russ, Mijat Gacinovic and Jonathan de Guzman are all injured, while Goncalo Paciencia and Sebastian Rode will face late fitness tests.

Alexandre Lacazette is out until October due to an ankle injury, while Kieran Tierney, Hector Bellerin, Rob Holding and Konstantinos Mavropanos remain short of fitness despite returning to training.

Forced to come from behind to salvage a point in the north London derby before the international break, the Gunners surrendered a two-goal lead to draw 2-2 with Watford at the weekend.

This combination of prolific attack and fragile defence must be extremely frustrating for the fans, although does provide neutrals with plenty of entertainment.

Another free-scoring clash looks likely against Adi Hutter’s side, who have scored 28 goals in 11 fixtures so far this campaign but kept just one clean sheet in the most recent five.

Eintracht Frankfurt vs Arsenal predictions

With this in mind, odds of 10/11 (1.91) look like solid value on both teams finding the net and over 2.5 goals being scored for Arsenal’s fifth game in a row, as well as a fourth in five for Frankfurt.

All odds correct at time of publish. Please gamble responsibly.
