Arsenal head to Paris Saint-Germain on Tuesday in the Champions League and at a big price the Gunners are worth the risk against a Paris Saint-Germain side still finding their feet under Unai Emery.
Arsene Wenger’s men have endured a tough start to the season but they head into this clash following back-to-back victories.
Admittedly they weren’t at their best against Southampton at the weekend but perhaps the trip to Paris was in the back of their minds.
PSG moved to appoint Emery in the summer in a bid to make a bigger mark on Europe following his success with Sevilla but the team are yet to gel under the Spanish coach. The Parisian outfit go into this one following a defeat to Monaco and a draw with Saint-Etienne.
The hosts do have a reasonable record against English sides in Europe having seen off Chelsea last season before being dumped out by Manchester City and they are justifiably favourites on home soil but they are definitely beatable.
Arsenal also tend to start quite slowly in the Champions League but boss Wenger always manages to see them progress beyond the group stages and he’ll have his men fired up for what is definitely their toughest group game on paper.
PSG are missing attacker Hatem Ben Arfa as he has been dropped by Emery following a disappointing showing on Friday and injury victim Layvin Kurzawa. Arsenal meanwhile, welcome back Laurent Koscielny in defence and his return will boost the back line.
There is little to choose between the two sides and as such the 57/20 for an Arsenal victory looks a great price as Emery is still trying to work out the best way forward with his new club.
The Gunners rarely make things easy for themselves however and the 21/4 on an away win with both teams to score also appeals, while Alexis Sanchez is 7/1 to score the first goal and he should be restored to the starting line-up after coming off the bench against Saints.
