When: Thursday, 13 October 2022, Kick-off 17:45
Where: The Aspmyra Stadion
On Thursday evening, Bodo/Glimt hosts Premier League leaders Arsenal at the Aspmyra Stadion in Group A of the Europa League as visitors look to continue their recent stellar form.
The home team heads into this clash in decent general form, having won three of their previous five games in all competitions. The Norwegian outfit’s recent record in the Europa League is a poor one, though, as they have won just one of their previous four games in the competition while suffering just one defeat in the run.
Bodo/Glimt have not featured very often in the UEFA Cup/Europa League. However, they are unbeaten in their five home games in the competition, having recorded four victories. The home team has also been prolific in the home victories, scoring at least two goals in four of their five matches.
The home team are without midfielder Sondre Fret for this difficult clash. They have no other reported personnel issues.
Arsenal head into this clash on the back of a potentially massive 3-2 home win over Liverpool last time out. The victory took Mikel Arteta’s team back to the top of the Premier League table. The win means that the Gunners have now won their previous five games in all competitions. In fact, the visitors have now won ten of their 11 games in all competitions.
One of the main reasons for Arsenal’s good results this season has been their potent attack, as the Gunners have now scored at least two goals in ten of their 11 competitive matches this season.
Mikel Arteta’s team has won both their games in Group A, beating Zurich 2-1 and winning their last match 3-0 against Thursday’s opponents in their last European outing. The Gunners have been difficult to beat in this competition in recent seasons, as they have lost just one of their previous six matches in the Europa League.
Arsenal has also won three of their last four away games in the Europa League while scoring at least two goals in each victory.
The visitors are expected to be without Mohamed Elneny, Emile Smith-Rowe and Oleksandr Zinchenko through injury. Arsenal boss Arteta is once again likely to rotate his squad.
Arsenal looked like they had too much quality for the home side in the reverse fixture. We believe the Gunners will again come out on top in this clash. We are backing Arsenal to be winning at half-time/full-time. This should be another high-scoring encounter, so we are also backing over 2.5 goals scored.
Our Tips: We are backing Arsenal half-time/full-time at odds of 11/11 and/or over 2.5 goals scored at odds of 8/15. (All odds are taken from Bet365)[geosnippet id=3620]
