Arsenal’s dramatic late comeback at Anderlecht, which saw them convert a likely defeat into a victory in the final two minutes, has left the Gunners on the verge of the Champions League knockout stages and indeed it could be that a home victory against the Belgians in the return fixture will guarantee progression from Group D for Arsene Wenger’s troops.
Anderlecht are without a victory in their last eleven Champions League ties so it’s easy to see why Arsenal come in the clash as Coral’s 4/11 favourites and with qualification in their sights they’re impossible to oppose at the Emirates Stadium.
However, the best bet is Coral’s 4/1 for Alexis Sanchez to open the scoring. The in-form Chilean attacker has struck ten times in his last dozen outings in all competitions and has also found the net in both of the Gunners’ home fixtures in the Champions League.
Alexis Sanchez to score first – 4/1 (Coral)
