Arsenal get their Champions League campaign underway on Tuesday as they travel to Turkey and we have free betting tips.
After a successful start to their league campaign, Arsenal now head to play Besiktas in hopes of qualifying for the Champions League group stages. The Gunenrs are no strangers to these Play-Off qualifiers having qualified many times in the past. In fact they played Turkish opposition last year, beating Fenerbache 5-0 on aggregate and the away leg 3-0.
Arsenal were far from convincing on Saturday though as they needed to come from behind and score a last minute winner to beat Crystal Palace at home 2-1. Palace made life hard but Arsenal are used to these European trips and have the pedigree to take a good result back to The Emirates. Aside from beating Fenerbache 3-0 away last year at this stage, in 2011 they overcame Udinese 2-1 in the away leg, Celtic 2-0 in 2009, Twente 2-0 in 2008, Sparta Prague in 2007 and Dinamo Zagreb 3-0 in 2006 – Wenger knows how to get good away results at this stage.
Besiktas don’t start their new season until the end of this month but beat Feyenoord 5-2 on aggregate to get to this stage of the competition, not a result to be shrugged at. Arsenal are a big step up from Feyenoord and with Arsenal so much further along in terms of match fitness with their season just beginning, this could be a big test for the Turkish side.
I fancy Arsenal to get their European campaign off to a good start and a comfortable one too. Considering they beat Fenerbache 3-0 last season, a side who finished 12 points clear of Besiktas, they should have the quality here. Arsenal to win with a -1 handicap is 7/4 with Betfred and looks like value with their recent form at this stage of the competition considered.
To go with this, they have kept a lot of clean sheets at this stage so Arsenal to win to nil is a nice price at 2/1 with Ladbrokes.
