Arsenal have racked up three straight victories in the Premier League since their shock opening day defeat to Aston Villa and with the capture of Mesut Ozil signalling their ambition, the Gunners will head to Marseille in confident mood.
However, the French side, runners-up in Ligue 1 last term, are strong on their own patch, where they like to keep things tight and the Gunners might therefore find it tough to break them down at the Stade Velodrome.
Bet365′s 12/5 marked against the stalemate is arguably the best match bet then, especially as that’s an outcome the Gunners wouldn’t be too disheartened about and more ambitious punters can tackle Ladbrokes’ 13/2 for it to finish one-each.
Alternatively, Stan James quote 9/2 about it being level at the end of each half and in attack, in-form Arsenal front man Olivier Giroud will inevitably be well backed at 13/2 with bet365 to break the deadlock.
Marseille and Arsenal to draw 1-1 – 13/2 (Ladbrokes)
