Montpellier v Arsenal Betting Preview & TipsFootball Betting Tips, UEFA Champions League, VIP Gambler of the Day
Arsenal travel to France tonight as clear favourites for the win against Montpellier in their opening Champions League match.
The Gunners have been surprisingly impressive during their first four Premier League matches, despite the loss of last season’s top scorer Robin van Persie.
Arsene Wenger is without first choice goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny for the match, as he misses out with an ankle injury so Vito Mannone will again deputise.
However, there is a place in the squad for the much-lauded Abu Diaby.
Olivier Giroud is also in Wenger’s squad and may get the chance to play against his old club. He is 6/1 to open the scoring tonight while 13/8 represents the best price in the anytime market.
In comparison to Arsenal’s good start to the season Montpellier are without a win in their first five matches with coach Rene Giraud describing the French champions’ current situation as ‘a bit depressing.’
Despite the north Londoners’ superior form 13/10 is still on the short side for an away Champions League victory.
One of the cornerstone’s of Arsenal’s early success this campaign has been their improved defence – only Southampton have scored against them so far and that goal came in a 6-1 drubbing.
The 11/4 available for Arsenal to win to nil looks the better value bet.
