Competition: Champions League
Market: Arsenal to win against Besiktas
Odds: 4/6 @ Ladbrokes
Arsenal are hoping to participate in their 16th consecutive season in the Champions League by seeing past Besiktas over two legs. The first leg will be played in Istanbul, Turkey tonight so manager Arsene Wenger is very wary of the difficult of playing away.
Besikas, who are managed by Slaven Bilic, will have Kerim Frei, Necip Uysal and Demba Ba in their lineup tonight.
Wenger is likely to name Nacho Monreal, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Mathieu Flamini and Joel Campbell in the starting eleven this evening, and they could be coming up against new boy Demba Ba for Besiktas, who scored a hat trick in the previous round.
Besiktas will be a tricky side for the Gunners, but Arsenal have seen past Turkish opposition before, beating Fenerbahce to book their place in the Champions League this time last season. Ladbrokes are giving odds of 4/6 for Wenger’s side to get a win against Besiktas this evening as their squad is significantly stronger than that of their opponents.
