Arsenal go into their Group F Champions League encounter against in-form Bayern Munich at the Emirates tonight as underdogs. The Gunners have lost their opening two group games while Bayern have, so far, a 100% record.
Bet365 are offering a free £50 bet on the game, which is well worth taking advantage of.
The disparity in form is reflected in the Football betting where, despite home advantage, odds for an Arsenal victory are 7/2 with Bayern at 5/6. The odds for a draw are 9/2 which would at least see the London side gain their first point.
The Germans are taking nothing for granted, however, according to Bayern midfielder Xabi Alonso. “For us it is not as crucial a match as it is for them, he told the Daily Mail. “Arsenal will have great motivation and are a great team. We will have to be on top of our game to get a result.”
We predict an open game with Arsenal going all out for the win and it seems the odds on both teams to score at 4/6 with Bet365 offers value.
Chelsea visit Dynamo Kiev for their Group G clash as bookies favourites despite the Ukrainians topping the group. However, Jose Mourinho’s men, in third place, are just a point behind Dynamo. The Blues, with a victory and defeat from their opening two group games are 7/4 while the hosts are 13/8 – 23/10 the draw.
On Wednesday night both Manchester clubs are in European action with City hosting Sevilla in Group D and United travelling to Moscow to face CSKA in Group B.
Both City and Sevilla are locked on three points with the Mancunians held back in third spot on goal difference.
Home advantage makes Manchester City the bookies favourites at 4/6, but for those fancying a bet on the Spaniards the odds of 4/1 make it an attractive prospect, while a draw is 10/3.
With City perhaps turning the corner in the Champions League with victory last time out and being strong at home, we fancy backing them to win at 4/6.
Manchester United are in the tightest of groups with all four sides on three points. United are favourites to claim the points at 31/20 with the Russians 7/4 for victory and odds for the two teams finishing all square are 12/5.
