The Gunners are returning to the Europa League many years later.
Arsenal, despite not having won the Premier League for a long time, is a usual presence on the Champions League, and they normally advance further than the group stage.
With great surprise, this season they will play in the Europa League, and this is a competition that must be looked into in a serious way and with ambition from the team led by Arséne Wenger, who desperately needs titles.
This season hey won the Community Shield against Chelsea and they even won the 1st match of the Premier League, but then they lost the following 2, which already raised some contestation on their manager.
On the past weekend, they returned to winning ways at home, and it was at the right time, because now they will have this European match.
Koln: They had a good campaign last season, playing good football and ensuring a European spot.
This season, the team still hasn’t found itself, and they have 3 losses in 3 league matches played so far. This team’s football is very disconnected, and they make a lot of defensive mistakes, which leads to a lot of conceded goals, and are also lacking some objectiveness on the attack.
They aren’t in good form and this trip to London to face Arsenal surely couldn’t come on a worse time.
Koln is the 2nd favourite team to advance in this group, but with Red Star and Bate Borisov they might struggle if they can’t improve their playing quality.
Arsenal vs Koln – Betting Tip and Prediction:
I predict a good performance from Arsenal on this return to the Europa League.
I think they have every condition to win against this Koln who is on a poor situation at the moment and that shouldn’t have many arguments to fight, in London, with Arsenal, who should present their best squad with maybe only one or two casual changes.
Arsenal are favourites in this group, and they will surely want to finish in 1st place, so this is a match they have to win.
I expect Arsenal trying to build up on their last 3-0 win at home, and they have a chance here against the Germans to return to winning ways and put up a good performance.
