Ostersunds vs Arsenal – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Considering Arsenal’s potential, we could point them as one of the favourites to lift this Europa League’s trophy.
However, the defensive consistency is not at all one of the characteristics of Wenger’s team.
So much that they were unable to keep a clean sheet in 11 of their last 12 matches, which is a clear sign of how weak their defence is.
Adding to that, there’s also the enormous offensive quality that they present, being able to score these 3 goals all by themselves, which leads me to believe this encounter should have some goals.
