Rapid Vienna vs Arsenal Betting Offers and Odds

Arsenal were disappointing from an attacking perspective against Man City on Saturday.

For all that Pep Guardiola sprung a tactical surprise, Arsenal’s lack of creativity and the inability for Mikel Arteta to change things in that respect was frustrating for Gooners everywhere.

A change in scenery, in the competition and in the first XI could be just what Arsenal need and we expect the Gunners to beat Rapid Vienna in the Europa League on Thursday at 8/15 with Virgin Bet.

When it was clear that Willian was not having much of an impact as a false nine at the Etihad on Saturday, Arteta’s idea to change things up was by bringing on both Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah.

Arsenal weren’t able to create the chances for those two strikers but it should be a different story in Vienna.

Standard are a long way from Man City and we expect Arsenal to start their Europa League campaign very strongly by scoring over three or more goals at 7/4 with Betfred.

Many people have said that the sort of player Arsenal really need is a creator such as Mesut Ozil.

He appears to have no chance of earning his place back in the team though and it will be very interesting to see who steps up to be that creative force on Thursday evening.

Key Battle to Look Out For

Rapid Vienna are in a difficult position in that they have to try and win the game as the home team whilst being very wary of the threats posed by Arsenal.

That’s a challenge that we don’t think they’ll be able to live up to.

Arteta is likely to make many changes to his starting XI on Thursday but those who come in should be good enough to win.

Eddie Nketiah is one of those who should get the chance to shine so we like the look of a bet on him to score first at 4/1 with 888sport.
