Match Preview

Arsenal are tending to go from crisis to crisis, ahead of our Arsenal vs FC Koln preview and football forecast, with big defeats and big wins leaving the fanbase and spirits in a state of constant flux.

The hosts have scored seven goals in their last two home games in the Premier League, with Leicester City and Bournemouth falling victim to a potent Gunners’ attack. Inside the last fortnight, however, Arsene Wenger’s men suffered a 4-0 thrashing at the hands of Liverpool.

Our Arsenal vs FC Koln predictions regard the home team as big favourites, not least down to the fact that Arsenal are used to pitting their wits against the best teams on the continent in the Champions League. That makes the week’s best football tips very tempting, as 10Bet are offering Over 3 Goals at 11/10.

There have been 10 goals across the Gunners’ last two Premier League fixtures, with Leicester managing to find the back of the net three times against Arsenal. Despite them being favourites, they certainly aren’t entirely solid at the back.

Alexis Sanchez is back fit and focused to play for Arsenal, after rumours in the summer linking the Chilean forward with a move to Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City. He could have a big impact on Thursday, even if it is from the bench.

Arsenal vs FC Koln Prediction and Betting Advice

Koln, meanwhile, have started the season poorly. They’ve lost their opening three matches in the Bundesliga and have scored just once in the process. It could be a long evening for the German visitors in London.

Anthony Modeste was the visitors’ key striker last season, with his goals helping to fire them to a European finish, but a move to China ensured that Koln lost their danger man for a healthy sum of money. Unfortunately, it doesn’t appear that they have adequately replaced him. Therefore, the Bundesliga club failing to hit the back of the net is a likelihood.

The away side have conceded three goals against both Hamburg and Augsburg recently, with neither side renowned for their firepower particularly. Against an attack like Arsenal’s, it could be a resounding defeat - even to nil. Alexandre Lacazette will be licking his lips at the chance to get his confidence up with some goals.

Koln have never featured in the Europa League, which should mean that their squad steps up to the occasion, but a win at the Emirates appear to be nothing short of a fairytale outcome. A defeat by a margin of at least a couple of goals looks to be the most likely result.

Our Arsenal vs FC Koln picks will only entertain a home win, with Arsenal bound to make a statement to both their fans and the other teams in the Europa League after missing out on the Champions League.
