Europa League: Mesut magic

The Europa League starts its knockout phase tonight, with Arsenal the sole English representative.

The Gunners face Ostersunds FK in the last 32, traveling to Sweden for the first leg, and start as firm favourites.

The Swedish minnows did very well to qualify second in their group, beating Hertha Berlin and drawing with Athletic Bilbao along the way. However, Arsenal represents a real step up in class.

That said, the Gunners are struggling for strikers. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is ineligible for this competition and Alexandre Lacazette is injured. This means Danny Welbeck starts, although he could lack match sharpness. Still, he may create space for others to prosper.

German midfielder Mesut Ozil recently signed a new contract and has shown the sort of form a settled mind can produce. We will take to star tonight, scoring a brace.

Recommendation: Ozil to score a brace,  1 pt, at 14/1, BetFred
