Arsenal Betting Preview

Arsenal knows they have their back against the wall as they are currently down 1-0 on aggregate. On February 21st against FC Porto, Arsenal had 65 percent of the possession but they didn’t have any shots on goal, and they ended up losing 1-0. On Saturday, Arsenal faced off against Brentford, and they were able to secure the 2-1 victory. Kai Havertz scored the game winner in the 86th minute. Arsenal had 72 percent of the possession and six shots on target. Gabriel Martinelli suffered a foot injury on Saturday, and it’s hard to imagine that he’s going to be able to go in this game. 

FC Porto Betting Preview

FC Porto might be leading 1-0 in the series, but they can’t just assume they are advancing at that point. The defense is going to need to be good, and if the defense isn’t good, it’s going to be a long game. On Friday, FC Porto faced off against Portimonense and they were able to secure the 3-0 victory. Zaidu Sanusi and Ivan Marcano are both recovering from ACL injuries, and they are expected to be out for a while. Mehdi Taremi missed the first leg with a thigh injury, but it’s expected that he’s going to be able to gin this game. 

Arsenal vs FC Porto Betting Prediction

FC Porto’s defense was good in the first game, and it’s going to be good again here. Now, ultimately Arsenal may end up scoring the goal to tie it up, and they might even add a second, but they aren’t going to score more than that here. FC Porto also won’t be getting on the board, and that will be the difference here, as this game is going to end up the total. Back the under to cash.
