Atletico Madrid vs Arsenal: Betting preview

Atletico Madrid welcomes Arsenal in the return game in the semifinal round of Europa League. This will probably be a game to remember for a long time since it could be the last time Wenger manages the team from London on the European stage. The European tournaments are what is missing in Wenger’s trophy collection. He has won every important trophy with the Gunners in England but the European ones have evaded him.

Whether Atletico Madrid and Diego Simeone will stop him once again is to be seen on Thursday evening and having in mind their last encounter it is rather possible. Atletico Madrid played quite a solid game combined with the needed big champions’ luck.. Atletico reached the draw 1:1 despite the 27 shots towards Oblak’s gate of which only 8 were in the right direction. While Diego Simeone’s players shot 8 times towards Arsenal’s goal line and 7 found it.

Atletico’s odds are even more favourable considering their wonderful performance at home. They have only two losses at home this season while Arsenal is one of the most faltering guests in the Premier League – they have 10 away losses.

For all of the above mentioned the bookies favour Atletico in this match. The biggest coefficient for a home win is given by 1xBet – 1.85. A draw is most highly assessed by bet365, Betsafe and Betsson – 3.7. Pinnacle rate Arslenal’s win with 5.11. You can follow the result live on Livescore.in.

Seen this way a coefficient of 5 for Arsenal to win seems a value bet which is worth the risk. It is equal to 20 percent and Lacazette and his teammates’ chances to reach the victory over Atletico are surely not lower than that. That is why the odds for this match seem to favour the hosts which means a good bet for the guests. Whether this will happen is to be seen on Thursday evening at Wanda Metropolitano.
