Prediction and betting tips
Arsenal have been incredible this season as they are top of the league. One of their last two games have ended in over 2.5 goals. FC Zurich have struggled in the league this season. Two of their last three games have ended in over 2.5 goals. I predict over 2.5 goals
FC Zurich have scored a goal in five of their last five games. Arsenal have scored a goal in five of their last five games in all competitions. Both teams have scored a goal in all their last five games. They are both good in front of goal although Zurich's defence have been awful this season. I predict both teams will score.
Betting prediction: Over 2.5 goals
Odds: 1.50 (-200 American; 1/2 Fractional)
Betting prediction: Both teams to score
Odds: 1.80 (-125 American; 4/5 Fractional)
