Slavia Prague vs Arsenal Stats

  • There has been under 2.5 goals in the last 5 Slavia Prague Europa League games.
  • Arsenal are undefeated in 10 of their last 11 Europa League games.
  • Slavia Prague are undefeated in 9 of their last 10 Europa League games.

Betting Tip: Slavia Prague to qualify

This tie is finely poised after a 1-1 draw at the Emirates last week. A late equaliser from the impressive Tomas Holes was a hammer blow to the Gunners who spurned numerous opportunities to make themselves in a more comfortable position and paid the price. 

Slavia have been very impressive this season, even after losing the influential Tomas Soucek and Vladimir Coufal to West Ham last year they’ve clearly got a strong conveyor belt of talent and are showing how much of a well-run club they are. They certainly shouldn’t be ruled out and that away goal could even side it in their favour. Even so, they’re still 15/8 outsiders in the ‘to qualify’ market and that just looks a tad disrespectful to the hosts.

Betting Tip: Under 2.5 goals

I’m anticipating a tight and trappy after in the Czech capital on Thursday night, neither side will want to give much away and I’m surprised to see under 2.5 goals trading at 9/10 here. Slavia games are rarely open and expansive and especially so in this dynamic whilst Arsenal have largely favoured pragmatism over anything gung-ho, particularly since Mikel Arteta took the reigns.

Slavia Prague vs Arsenal Odds

Arsenal will be looking to make amends for not seeing out their 1-0 lead in the reverse fixture.
