Arsenal vs Manchester City [Community Shield Prediction, August 10th]

Arsenal steps back into the competitive season by playing the Community Shield final against Manchester City. Both teams have had their share of pre-season friendlies, both have missed out on key players due to the World Cup in Brazil, and this match will serve to show, whose fitness level is on schedule for the Premier League. Bet365 favors the Citizens to win this match, even if Arsenal are not to be dismissed in the quest of winning another trophy at the expense of their rivals.

Arsenal have been quite active on the transfer market, by managing to replace Sagna’s departure with Mathieu Debuchy and Alexis Sanchez, who looked impressive in the Emirates Cup as opposed to Giroud, who may still suffer from some World Cup nostalgia. Other Arsenal players poised to impress are Koscielny, who looks comfortable enough to play the ball outside his zone, and Aaron Ramsey who has been a constant great player in Arsenal’s last year Premier League campaign.


Manchester City as well as their opponents will be without some of their World Cup players, even if without Fernandinho City have a wide selection of replacements. David Silva is not to be blamed for the horrendous way Spain exited the World Cup, as a player with such potential can prove his team more than what he showed in Brazil. Their Argentinian players might be missing out in this match, but the general consensus is that goals will be scored.

Bet365 has an Arsenal win at 3.30, a Man City one at 2.10, and a draw at the end of regular time at 2.10. The Citizens to lift the trophy are at 1.61, the Gunners at 2.20, and among the special betting markets are Arsenal to score in both halves at 4.00 and Man City in the same betting market is at 3.00. Aaron Ramsey to score is at 3.75 and David Silva at 4.50. Our bet is on both teams to score and over 2.5 goals per match at 2.05 with the same bookie.
