Arsenal will be wanting a better result here after the 0-1 Premier League loss in their previous game against Leicester City.
In that match, Arsenal had 56% possession and 12 attempts at goal with 4 of them on target. For their opponents, Leicester City got 6 attempts at goal with 2 on target. Jamie Vardy (80') was the scorer for Leicester City.
It’s not been often in recent times that Arsenal have kept a clean sheet. In fact, The Gunners have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 5 of their previous 6 clashes, giving up 7 goals along the way. We will see whether or not that trend will end up being sustained here.
Since a loss in their previous game against Waterford in Premier Division competition, Dundalk will be aiming to make amends here.
John Martin (57') scored for Waterford.
A succession of resolute displays from the Dundalk defenders has seen the number of goals they’ve conceded standing at 4 from their previous 6 fixtures combined. Over that same period, their own forwards have managed to score 5.
It’s likely that Dundalk will find it extremely difficult to hit the back of the net at all against a Arsenal team who should win very easily indeed.
We are anticipating a very commanding 4-0 win at the minimum for Arsenal when the referee blows the final whistle.
What are the best odds for the game?
Turning to the betting odds on the win-draw-win market, a win for Arsenal is best priced at 1.05, a wager on the draw is 15 and putting your money on a victory for Dundalk comes in at 55. They are the best of the returns offered at present.
