Having bagged the game’s only goal in the first leg against Udinese at the Emirates Stadium, Arsenal are emphatic favourites at 4/11 with Skybet to complete the job and qualify for the group stage of the Champions League but it could be tougher for the Gunners in Italy than those odds suggest.
The Serie A outfit are 5/2 courtesy of Betfred to eliminate Arsene Wenger’s charges but make them just 13/10 to win the second leg in the Stadio Friuli, where Coral chalk 12/5 against another Arsenal success.
The Italian side caused the Gunners plenty of headaches last week and back on home soil they can pose even more of a threat so there’s plenty to like about that 5/2 for them to heap more misery on the north London side, already down in the dumps after Saturday’s defeat to Liverpool.
Antonio Di Natale can be instrumental for the hosts, the veteran striker was a threat at the Emirates and on his own patch, the 33-year-old can be even more dangerous. Boylesports price the Udinese skipper at 13/8 to find the net at any stage and that catches the eye given that he struck the woodwork twice at the Emirates Stadium.
