The first leg in London provided lots of goals and it is likely to go that way again in the Russian capital on Thursday night

 Arsenal will be in action against CSKA Moscow in the second leg of the Uefa Europa League quarter-finals at the VEB Arena.

The Red-Blues were outclassed 4-1 in the first leg of this clash last Thursday which puts them on the cusp of elimination from the competition. The hosts entered this duel on the back of a 2-1 derby defeat in the hands of Dinamo Moscow in the Russian Premier League.

BetKing tags CSKA as slight underdogs at odds of (3.65).

Arsene Wenger’s charges have one foot inside the Europa League last four ahead of their trip to Moscow. The visitors were at their flowing best last Thursday followed by a 3-2 dramatic victory over Southampton on Sunday. Thus, they are tipped as favourites at (2.00) by the same firm.

Seeing a stalemate surface in this match which only paid out just once of their last three meetings is chalked up at a whooping (3.70).

On their own turf, Viktor Goncharenko’s charges have bagged ten wins, a draw, and six defeats across competitions so far this season.

Away from home, Wenger’s men have not been impressive at all with 10 losses in all competitions. The home team can thus be backed to avoid defeat at odds of (1.82).

The bookies price odds of (1.65) for this outcome to produce an outcome of three or more goals which paid out just once in their last three head-to-head clashes.

Punters should back both teams to notch each other owing their weaponry in attack. BetKing offers (1.57) for a likely outcome.
