On Sunday, at 19:15, Arsenal and Leicester meet in the 6th round of the Premier League, in an event eagerly awaited by all bettors. It is natural to think about goal betting, considering what good strikers both sides have, but also what hesitant defenses are encountered. We must not forget, however, that the “foxes” were unsure of the top scorer Vardy.
Not only Vardy is an important absence in this duel. Mikel Arteta cannot yet count on a series of important players, such as Ceballos, Chambers, Holding, Mari, Martinelli, Ozil, Willian or Mustafi! Of these, only Mustafi and Ceballos have a chance to recover in a timely manner. Instead, Brendan Rodgers has to think about the starting team without Amartey, Ndidi, Pereira, Soyuncu and Vardy. As a result, we will see improvisations in both camps. But Partey’s presence in the middle, for Londoners, could be very important and useful.
There are two spectacular teams, which come after good results in the UEFA Europa League. Arsenal won away with Rapid Vienna (2-1), returning to the table, while Leicester passed without emotions to Zoria, at home, score 3-0.
The “gunners” were saved by Aubameyang’s goal, while Leicester benefited from the inspiration of Iheanacho and Maddison. In the league, the two come after frustrating failures: Arsenal lost the match to Manchester City, score 0-1 away, while Leicester lost to Aston Villa, with the same score. “As I played on a par with Manchester City, I don’t see why we couldn’t win at Arsenal. We have to aim for the three points, “said James Maddison.
In recent years, Arsenal and Leicester have put the brakes on goal-scoring betting, although it has been played openly, with many opportunities and many corners. In the previous three direct duels, two goals were scored each time, the balance being balanced: a 2-0 victory and a 1-1 draw in London.
But in 4 of the 5 matches played in the Premier League by Arsenal, this season, at least three goals have been scored, and the statistics of the “gunners” on their own field are very impressive. With the quality players we find in the two offensives, it is hard to believe that we will not see goals, especially since the absences from the teams will lead to a lack of homogeneity and errors.
