Match Venue: Jamkraft Arena
Match Date: 16 Feb 2018 | 2:00AM (Asia GMT+8)
12BET (Football Betting Tips) Ostersund and Arsenal are facing off each other for the first time in the Europa League. Since the two clubs never had any match history, it will be a bit difficult to predict which side will dominate. On a different note, given the harsh weather in Sweden, this could potentially have impact on the performance of the Gunners.
Oestersunds FK have only played one competitive fixture in more than two months and a lack of match sharpness may really hinder their chances of causing one of the biggest upsets this season. The Swedish side have only lost once at home all season, but will do well to avoid defeat as they welcome Arsene Wenger’s Arsenal.
In terms of injury list, Johan Bertilsson, Smajl Suljevic, and Hosam Aiesh are certainly not going to be featured here due to their respective injury.
Meanwhile, Arsenal refuse to give up on a top-four finish in the Premier League despite Saturday’s 1-0 defeat to Tottenham. The result leaves the club in the sixth place and eight points their long-time rivals Chelsea.
Aaron Ramsey is expected to miss out in the upcoming game after picking up a minor muscle injury. Newly signed Aubameyang cannot play for Arsenal in the Europa League because he played in Europe with Borussia Dortmund and the German side are now in the same competition as the Gunners.
Manager Arsene Wenger’s Arsenal will not be the favorites to win this game, but the Gunners are bound to do well in order to avoid defeat against Oestersunds (Sign Up for other interesting Sportsbook and Virtual Sports).
