Arsenal v Monaco tips

February 23rd, 2015

Arsenal host Monaco in the Champions League Last 16 on Wednesday and the game is live on SkySports 1 from 7.45pm.

The Gunners are strong favourites to progress through to the Quarter-Final's at a best price of 4/11 with Bet365, while Monaco can be backed at 11/4 with Ladbrokes 'to qualify'.

Arsene Wenger’s side are 8/15 favourites to win this game with William Hill, while Monaco are available at best odds of 7/1 and the draw at 16/5 - both with Bet365.

It’s certainly hard to see an upset in this first leg - the French side only scored four goals in this season’s group stages, and they haven’t won any of their seven away games when playing in the knockout stages of this competition (D2, L5).

That said, Monaco have a very tight defence and only conceded one goal in the group stages, plus they have only conceded 1 goal in their last 11 league games. So, we expect this game to be a close affair - let’s back the 0-0 at Half Time at 7/4 with William Hill, while we also like Draw/Arsenal in the Half Time/Full Time market at 10/3 with BetVictor.

Alexis Sanchez scored in each of Arsenal's three Champions League group games at the Emirates this season and he can be backed to score the first goal at stand-out odds of 9/2 with Coral (7/2 elsewhere).

Meanwhile Olivier Giroud has scored five goals in his last seven games and Coral’s 9/2 on him scoring the first goal is also worth a wager, while we also suggest backing him at 29/20 with BetVictor to score at any time (just 10/11 with SkyBet).

Finally, let’s back Arsenal to win 1-0 at 5/1 with BetVictor and 2-0 at 6/1 with Coral.
