Ludogorets vs Arsenal Betting PreviewPublished November 1, 2016
Arsenal’s can secure their passage to the next stage with a win at Ludogorets and it will be a massive shock if they fail to get victory after battering the Bulgarians 6-0 at the Emirates.
Arsene Wenger doesn’t want his side to take their foot off the gas for a moment. November is packed full of fixtures and one of them is another battle with Paris Saint-Germain which should decide who tops the group. Any slip-up before then will ramp up the pressure. What he’ll want to see his side do is try to finish the game off as quickly as possible. This will allow him to take off players who he views as key, especially with the North London derby being this weekend.
Here’s another great offer….
We can expect to see that rotation in effect tonight. Theo Walcott, Santi Cazorla and Nacho Monreal are unavailable due to injury but they won’t be alone in sitting this one out. Hector Bellerin will be rested and we can expect Olivier Giroud to start after his match-winning substitute appearance against Sunderland at the weekend. The Frenchman scored with his first two touches in that 4-1 victory. Alexis Sanchez, another scorer, could be rested.
Aaron Ramsey will be keen to get minutes under his belt after recovering from injury, he’ll be involved. Granit Xhaka, whose Premier League ban is finished, could start.
Ludogorets are flying domestically, scoring four and five on a weekly basis. They gave PSG a scare when they came to Bulgaria, taking the lead against the French giants before going on to lose 3-1. That could happen here but if it does we still expect Arsenal to win.
Predicted Ludogorets XI: Stoyanov, Moți, Minev, Palomino, Dyakov, Andrianantenaina, Wanderson, Natanael Pimienta, Marcelinho, Jonathan Cafu, V. Misidjan
Predicted Arsenal XI: Ospina, Debuchy, Gabriel, Koscielny, Gibbs, Xhaka, Elneny, Iwobi, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Ozil, Giroud
