Europa League, Arsenal travels to Serbia to face Crvena Zvezda at the Rajko Mitic stadium…
Crvena Zvezda is in 2nd place of this group H with 4 points gained after the first two rounds, having beaten Koln away from home and getting 1 point at home when they hosted the Belarusians of BATE Borisov.
The Serbian side has started off early, since they had to play several rounds in the qualifying stage for this Europa League’s group stage.
The truth is that, on the 23 official matches they played so far, they only lost twice, which helps to understand Arsenal’s odds for this match.
Internally they are comfortably leading the Serbian league, already having a 4-point advantage to Partizan.
Arsenal is playing their role of favourites very well on this group H, getting 2 wins in 2 matches.
On the first round, they hosted and defeated the Germans of Koln, in London, 3-1. Then, they have beaten BATE in Belarus 2-4.
The side managed by Arséne Wenger currently occupies the 6th position on the Premier League, which means they have had a similar performance to the one they’ve had in the past few years, playing a style that is way too romantic for the English league.
Arsenal’s matches (no matter the opponent they are facing) are usually well played, exciting and have some goals in them.
Crvena Zvezda vs Arsenal – Betting Tip and Prediction:
I want to highlight the fact that in the 10 European matches that Crvena Zvezda has played so far, this season, only 2 of them were 0-0 at half-time.
On the other hand, Arsenal is the team who has more responsibility going into this match.
They usually don’t drive away from their own style, and I also want to highlight the fact that we usually have goals during the 1st half on their games, which happened in 21 out of the last 23 European matches that the club from London has played.
