Competition: Europa League
Market: Over 2.5 goals
Odds: 8/11 @ Bet 365
In what is set to be a lively encounter on Thursday evening, a struggling Arsenal will make the trip to Eintracht Frankfurt to open the 2019/2020 Europa League campaign.
Starting with the hosts, while Eintracht Frankfurt may have shocked many on route to securing a Europa League finish last season, Adi Hütter’s men have failed to burst out the blocks this time around. Returning from the international break and slumping to a 2-1 defeat against Augsburg on the road last weekend, their continued defensive issues will be a growing concern for fans around Commerzbank-Arena. Scrapping just a single Bundesliga clean sheet since opening the new campaign, Frankfurt could be set for another defensive struggle if Arsenal’s front line can hit the ground running.
As for the visitors, throwing away a two-goal lead against a struggling Watford and now failing to win any of their last three appearances, Arsenal find themselves in the midst of a minor struggle. Shipping two or more goals against the Hornets, Spurs, and Liverpool, the Gunners have recorded just a single clean sheet in any of their previous 12 competitive matchups. While Emery may have a string of defensive headaches, he does have one attacking talisman enjoying a continued purple patch. Bagging another brace across London on Sunday, leading marksman Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has opened the new Premier League campaign with five in his opening five.
