Bet of the Day: Arsenal to roll over Koln
The Gunners should seal top spot
Arsenal travel to Koln on Thursday knowing they only need a point to secure first place in their Europa League group.
Arsene Wenger is almost certain to rest most of the players who excelled against Tottenham Hotspur last weekend. But whatever team he selects, the Gunners should be too strong for a struggling Koln side.
Koln are rock bottom of the Bundesliga. They’ve only picked up two points from 12 league games so far. Jorg Schmadtke’s side have only scored two goals in league action.
They’re also bottom of Group H in Europe and have won just once at home in all competitions this term.
All signs point to an Arsenal win here. The Coral Bet of the Day is Arsenal to Win to Nil at 19/5.
The Europa League has given Arsene Wenger the chance to rotate his squad and keep his best players fit.
But it’s meant the likes of Olivier Giroud and Theo Walcott have barely featured in the league.
The fringe players will want to impress to force their way into the first-team. It wouldn’t be a surprise to see the away side fire in a few goals at the RheinEnergieStadion.
Arsenal and Over 2.5 Goals looks tempting at 3/1.
Danny Welbeck is in line to feature as he works his way back to full fitness.
The England international made a bright start to the season, scoring four goals in six games for club and country.
Welbeck isn’t the most reliable finisher but he’ll always get chances with his movement and athleticism. He’s 17/10 to take one of them and score Anytime.
