By on August 19, 2014
Besiktas will host Arsenal today from 19:45 in Champions League play-off. The gunners are the favorites to win this game at bookmakers but it will not be an easy mission for Arsene Wenger’s side.
Besiktas are playing in Champions League because Fenerbahce are suspended from international competitions. The home side is in a excellent form this summer. They have started the summer wih a defeat, 1-2 against Wigan, but after that they ticked five wins and a draw. The turkish team will play a 4-4-2 formation with Ba and Pektemek in the attack.
Arsenal have a good morale before this game. Nine days ago they managed to win Community Shield and three days ago the won three points in the first fixture of Premier League new season, struggling against Crystal Palace. Wenger will field a 4-1-4-1 formation with Flamini as a defensive midfielder. Giroud is announced as the main striker for this game.
Besiktas probable lineup:
Kurtulus – Gulum – Franco  – Ramon
Frei – Kavlak – Uysal – Sahan
Ba – Pektemek
Arsenal probable lineup:
Debuchy – Chambers – Koscielny – Monreal
Campbell – Ramsey – Arteta – Chamberlain
Prediction: 2 @ 1.62
Arsenal have the advantage of officials matches in the last two weeks and we expect them to win this game, altough they have few injured players. We consider Arsenal a much stronger team right now. The odds are very good too.
The best odds for Newcastle vs Man City: 5.50 – 4.20 – 1.65
