Norwich City will be hoping to cause an upset when they travel to the Emirates Stadium to take on Arsenal in Tuesday’s EFL Cup clash.
Unbeaten in nine fixtures, the Canaries are available at 37/5 (8.40) with BetSafe to extend their strong form with a shock victory over their Premier League opponents.
However, Arsene Wenger’s men ran out emphatic 5-2 winners over Everton on Sunday, and are clear 8/25 (1.32) favourites to demonstrate their superiority by emerging victorious here.
Just one of the hosts’ 13 fixtures this season has resulted in a draw, but you can get odds of 101/20 (6.05) on them being forced into extra-time with a deadlocked 90 minutes in this one.
Although their big win at Goodison Park will have given them plenty of confidence, the Gunners are likely to find things rather more difficult against their Championship guests.
While the Toffees’ performance was so poor that it ultimately cost Ronald Koeman his job, Daniel Farke’s team arrive in North London in excellent form.
After a shaky start to the season that saw his side concede four goals in two consecutive matches towards the end of August, the former Borussia Dortmund II coach has turned the team around primarily by tightening things up at the back.
Six wins, no defeats, and just three goals conceded in the subsequent nine games sees Farke’s men full of confidence for this cup clash, particularly after Sunday’s 1-0 win over Ipswich in the East Anglian derby.
With Wenger likely to pick a similarly understrength team to the one that narrowly edged past League One Doncaster Rovers 1-0 in the last round, the resilient guests will back themselves to put up a resistance in the capital.
All things considered, odds of 19/20 (1.95) are well worth backing on Norwich keeping the scoreline to under 3.5 goals for their ninth game in 10, as well as a fifth in six home matches for Arsenal.
