Our tipster is backing the free-scoring Gunners to get amongst the goals again when they travel to the Russian capital for this Europa League tie

Arsenal have one foot in the final four of the Europa League following their fantastic 4-1 win against CSKA Moscow in the first leg of their quarter final clash.

Arsene Wenger’s men travel to the Russian capital on Thursday night with the aim of completing the job and, given their three-goal advantage, will be supremely confident of achieving that objective.

Latest odds

Arsenal were completely dominant last week, scoring four first half goals against Viktor Goncharenko’s side.

It is, therefore, no real surprise that the north Londoners are chalked up as dabblebet’s even money (2.0) favourites to secure a semi-final spot in style by winning this second leg tie.

CSKA will be desperate to restore some pride after producing an abject performance at Emirates Stadium and the hosts are a 23/10 (3.30) chance to win against Wenger’s men.

The odds compilers offer 13/5 (3.60) that the return leg in Russia ends all square, a result which would send Arsenal through.

Team news

Jack Wilshere, Alexandre Lacazette and Mesut Ozil were among the substitutes for Arsenal’s Premier League win over Southampton on Sunday and all three men are expected to start here.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is ineligible and Henrikh Mkhitaryan may miss the remainder of the campaign after sustaining a knee injury in last week’s first leg.

Viktor Vasin and Astemir Gordyushenko are long-term absentees for CSKA, but Mario Fernandes could be fit to face the Gunners.

Goals galore?

Arsenal have scored 18 times in their last six matches and will fancy their chances of once again getting amongst the goals once again in Russia.

dabblebet go 4/6 (1.67) that there are at least three goals scored in this game, while the same firm offer 7/10 (1.70) that the Gunners strike first.

Tips and predictions

Wenger's side are in free-scoring form at present and they will surely be brimming with belief ahead of this match.

As such, dabblebet’s 5/6 (1.83) quote for the Gunners to score more than a single goal in this game may represent good value for punters ahead of Thursday’s tussle.
