The Gunners were too good last week but our tipster expects a low-key affair when Graham Potter's charges make the trip to north London on Thursday

Arsenal are all but assured of a place in the last 16 of the Europa League ahead of Thursday’s second leg tie with Ostersunds at Emirates Stadium.

Arsene Wenger’s men were 3-0 winners in last week’s first leg in Sweden and Graham Potter’s side will surely bow out of the competition in north London.

Latest odds

There was a significant gulf between these teams last week and it is unsurprising that dabblebet offer just 1/4 (1.25) that the Gunners secure a spot in the last 16 in style by winning this one.

Ostersunds are a chunky 9/1 (10.0) shot to win the second leg, while dabblebet go 9/2 (5.50) that the second leg ends all square.

Team news

Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Mesut Ozil started in last week's 3-0 win but both will likely be rested with Sunday’s Carabao Cup final against Manchester City at Wembley on the horizon.

Gunners to shut out the visitors

Arsenal have kept a clean sheet in two of their three Europa League ties on home soil and have kept the opposition at bay in five of their last eight home victories in all competitions.

As such, dabblebet offer even money (2.0) that Arsenal win to nil on this occasion.

Preview and predictions

Sunday’s cup final against runaway Premier League leaders Manchester City casts a significant shadow over Wenger, and the importance of that match will not be lost on the 68-year-old Frenchman.

The Gunners did the hard work in this tie in last week’s first leg and this match may lack the intensity that would normally be expected of a Europa League knockout fixture.

Therefore, the 13/8 (2.63) quote from dabblebet for fewer than three goals to be scored could represent decent value for punters.
