Premier League giants Arsenal take a trip to Switzerland to face FC Zurich on Thursday afternoon. The Gunners have been handed a decently competitive group with the main threat being PSV Eindhoven. But, Zurich and Bodo/Glimt are two sides which can be really frustrating as well as surprising away from home. Zurich have not been preparing very well for this big test at home as they have lost both their last two games in the Super League (interestingly, both at home). On the other hand, Arsenal were cruising at the top of the Premier League before Manchester United handed them their first loss of the season on Sunday. Zurich might be walking into their third successive defeat at the Letzigrund here.

FC Zurich vs Arsenal Betting Tips

Both Zurich and Arsenal have been indulging in high-scoring games since the season started. For the Swiss hosts, it has been a disappointing road though as they have been at the negative end of the thumping. Arsenal have been the high scorer on the contrary, with the Manchester United game being the only exception. We believe that even the second team of Arsenal will be too much to handle for Zurich and they will end up conceding 3 goals, let alone scoring one to take the count to over 2.5 goals. Our best bet for this game will be an ACCA of an away win and over 2.5 goals being scored, as we predict a 3-1 Arsenal win.

  • Best Tip: Away / Over 2.5
  • Prediction: 0-3

FC Zurich Team News

Zurich have been shambolic in attacking the opposition's goal, as they have netted just 4 times in 7 games since the season started. Despite having a disappointing start, the Swiss Super League side still has a few gems in their lineup. Midfielder Blerim Dzemaili is not only the joint top-scorer in the side, but also makes 1.50 key passes every game for his teammates to pounce upon. He is joined by the forward Bogdan V'Yunnick who shares the same exact numbers in the key passes segment. Defender Lindrit Kamberi, who is expected to not start this game, makes an average of 2.6 interceptions per game and will be a key figure if he makes an appearance from the bench in the second half. Dzemaili, V'Yunnick and Kamberi will be our three players to watch out for.

Arsenal Team News

New signing Gabriel Jesus might not be amongst the top scorers in the Premier League at the moment, but his overall goal contribution of 6 goals is nowhere near the other Arsenal teammates by a mile. The Brazilian has really taken his transfer from Manchester City to his heart and is slowly becoming Mikel Arteta's first name on the team sheet. He is very well supported by his fellow International teammate Gabriel Martinelli from the left wing as the youngster makes an average of 2.3 key passes every game for his other team members to attack the goal. Another Manchester City arrival Oleksandr Zinchenko showed his attacking side from the full-back position earlier this season. But currently, the Ukrainian has been highly pivotal to the defence with him averaging 1.3 interceptions every game. Gabriel Jesus, Martinelli and Zinchenko are our three players to keep an eye on.
