Arsenal v FC Basel Champions League Betting Preview

Arsenal lock horns with FC Basel in their second group game of this season’s Champions League campaign, and are big favourites at odds of 2/5 with Boyle Sports to pick up all three points to potentially go top of Group A.

The in-form Gunners drew their European opener against Paris Saint-Germain, but are coming off the back of fantastic domestic form that should see them dispatch Basel without any problems.

Arsenal are immediately coming off the back of a 3-0 win over Chelsea, and have won four on the bounce in the Premier League. Full of goals, Arsene Wenger’s men have averaged three goals per game in their four-game winning streak and will be hard for Basel to contain as a result.

The Swiss Super League side are no slouches, however, enjoying a 100% record from nine games so they are sure to put up a good fight, although they are major outsiders for victory in this clash at odds of 8/1 with Bet365.

Basel struggled in their opening Champions League group game against Ludogorets, which points to a European fragility that should ultimately see them falling short at the Emirates Stadium.

While a side more used to dominating their opponents in the Swiss Super League, Basel could be given a rude awakening when they face Arsenal due to them keeping high-levels of possession which may see them worn down on the pitch.

Nevertheless, nine wins from nine in the Swiss Super League means Basel have goals in the side so Arsenal can’t take their opposition for granted.

In the past, the visitors have had a good record against Premier League sides, beating Chelsea in the Champions League in 2013, while drawing away to Liverpool in 2014 to knock the Reds out of the competition.

Arsenal are expected to deliver on home soil given their recent record in all competitions, and manager Arsene Wenger should name a strong line-up to get the job done as a result.

Basel will adopt containment tactics to try and nullify the Gunners’ threat, but ultimately they are likely to go lengthy periods without the ball which could see their defence fail to hold out for the duration.
