Arsenal London vs Besikas Istanbul (Champions League Play-offs Prediction, August 27th)

Arsenal host Besiktas tomorrow for the return leg of the Champion League playoffs, in what promises to be an interesting matchup after the 0-0 draw from last week. Arsene Wenger stated his team’s intention is to win regardless of the fact that now they will have to do without Ramsey, Giroud and Arteta, out most likely for another week due to an injury.

Besiktas could not take advantage of Arsenal being with only 10 men on the pitch, and only Demba Ba seemed to test Gunner’s defense, but his shots either ended up wide of the goal or the Arsenal keeper who was then clearing them over the crossbar. To their advantage is the fact that they have no new injuries to worry about and will once again rely on Ba to stun the fans on Emirates. Against them is that Arsenal have not lost to a team from Turkey on home soil, and they have been unbeaten in three matches.
Rumours have it that Giroud might miss three months, which puts Sanogo under pressure who also is suspected to have a fitness problem. Now that Podolski is said to be leaving the club, the goals duty will fall on Alexis Sanchez at 2.33 with Unibet to score. Tipsters have Rosicky starting instead of Ramsey to provide instant depth and allow Sanchez to develop scoring chances.

Besiktas could be dangerous since they are considered underdogs, but at this stage of the competition experience should speak louder. Unibet favors Arsenal to qualify and gives them 1.38 odds for an outright win, Besiktas has 7.50, and Arsenal as the team to qualify is at 1.20. Arsenal to win without conceding is at 2.07, but we are betting 7 units on the Wincast market of Sanchez to score and Arsenal to win at 2.70 with Unibet.
