Expect Goals As Arsenal Take On In Form Milan In Champions League

Arsenal take on AC Milan in the second leg of their Champions League second round tie this week and although the tie is effectively over (Milan hold a 4-0 lead currently) there is still an opportunity for Arsenal to salvage some pride and also for punters to make some money from this match.

A good run of results domestically for AC Milan has caused them to be flagged up by the ValueChecker Steamers. The Steamers highlight bets that have been so popular that the bookies have been forced to shorten their odds and AC Milan have shortened in the Serie A title odds from 1.75 to 1.72 and that represents a decrease in odds of 17%.

The first leg between the two sides had plenty of goals and we could see a similar result again this time according to the Arsenal ValueChecker wikis which flag up the fact that Arsenal games tend to have over 2.5 goals rather than under 2.5 goals. Last season in the Premiership 23 of Arsenal’s games finished with over 2.5 goals whilst the season before over 2.5 goals was even more frequent as a winning bet in 25 of Arsenal’s league matches. This trend seems to be translating to the Champions League too and over 2.5 goals should prove a good bet here with Arsenal needing to attack from the first minute.
