12BET (Football Tip) Arsenal will kick off their pre-season tour as they to face the 2016/17 A-League champions Australia. Arsene Wenger and his men might be firm favorites here. But Sydney are determined to push for a remarkable score sheet in this battle too. This is going to be an interesting preseason match to watch out for. Supporters out there, stand by for more betting tips.
Sydney have had a beautiful performance last season. They beat Melbourne Victory to the Premiership title having an impressive 17 points. Add to that, they defeated the same team on penalties in the Grand Final in May.
With this, Sydney are expected to host Arsenal in full swing given the fact that their recent battles are confidence builder. In-form will be composed of attacking duo Bobo and Milos Ninkovic, who both led the team to an Australian double last season.
Arsenal, despite the controversies that struck the squad are trying to keep it together to make sure that they are all set for the upcoming friendly.
However, Alexis Sanchez will not be involved in the match against Sydney as he’s taking a break after joining Chile in the Confederations Cup. Taking this into account, Sanchez absence might pose a threat for the Gunners since he’s amongst the club’s key players.
Despite this, new signings Sead Kolasinac and Alexandre Lacazette will both be in action in Australia.
Arsenal are still having a rough patch. But surely, this isn’t to say that they are the team who will be left behind. They’ll fight strategically through the entire game and thwart Sydney from snatching a win match.
Arsenal 1.25 (betting odds here to step up the game)
