Arsenal will play against Olympiakos Piraeus in Europa League and we got a Online betting football forecast for the match. The game is on Thursday, March 18 from 17:55 UK at Emirates Stadium.
Arsenal is in 10th place in Premier League with 41 points after 28 matches. The team of Mikel Arteta is in very good form and won 7 points from their last 3 games. Their last clash was a London derby against Tottenham and the Gooners won it 2:1.
The winning goal was scored from a penalty in the second half by Alexandre Lacazette. The first match against Olympiakos in Greece finished 3:1 for the London club and they have a pretty easy task at first sight in the second leg.
Olympiakos is in 1st place in Super League 1 in Greece with 67 points after 26 matches. This is 16 more points than the second team in the standing Aris. Like we already said the team lost at their stadium the first leg 1:3 against Arsenal as the only goal for the club was scored by Youssef El-Arabi.
However, a few days later the team continued with their great form in the league and beat away from home Larissa 1:3. This is the result that the Greece team will need in London if they want to have a chance to advance in the next round and the game to go in extra time. However, I don’t think that is very likely to happen.
Arsenal is the favorite in the upcoming clash. Given the fact that the London team will finish without a doubt, not in the top 4 in Premier League, Europa League gives them a chance to play in the Champions League next season if they won the trophy.
That is why I expect Mikel Arteta to use a solid squad but given the result, he will give a rest to some of his key players. I think that this will give a chance to Olympiakos to score but I don’t think that the Greece club will do more than that. Online betting football forecast: BTTS
