The Europa League continues tonight, with Arsenal hosting Swedish side Ostersunds FK at the Emirates in the second leg of the last 32 round.
The Gunners took virtually a first choice team to Sweden to win the first leg 3-0, so the tie is basically finished. With this in mind, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is set to select a youthful side.
Midfielder Alex Iwobi is on the fringes of the first team, but could be regarded as something of a veteran in this team despite his relative youth. We think Iwobi tends to flourish in this type of environment, and expect him to shine tonight.
Iwobi is priced at just over 2/1 to score at any time during the match, but is best priced at 17/2 to be the first goal scorer. We think this price differential is too large as we don’t see a lot of goals in the game. Consequently, we’ll take the 17/2 and hope Alex nips in quickly.
Recommendation: Iwobi to score first, 1 pt, at 17/2, Betfair
