Standard Liege vs Arsenal Match Preview

Arsenal travel to Liege for their Europa League clash just days after beating West Ham (1-3) and ending their nine-match winless streak across competitions has seen celebrations at London Stadium as struggling rivals felt all over the place after Martinelli’s equalizer.

Gunners have been scoring goals on the regular but obviously have a lot to prove after such a step in the right direction, which could be bad news for the Belgian rivals battling for the top 2 spot. They saw Norwich (2-2) and Brighton (1-2) snatch points beforehand and earning a pick-me-up will be important for Freddie Ljungberg and his men.

Standard Liege have, on the other hand, connected a five-match unbeaten streak since the International break and they sit two points behind 2nd placed Eintracht Frankfurt in Group F. They beat Cercle Brugge (2-1) and Rebecq (3-0) before sharing the spoils in a 2-2 draw at Royal Excel Mouscron over the weekend, which will have them motivated up front once again.

‎Reds have scored a total of ten goals in their last five home outings and bagged four wins along the way, which will have the crowd at Maurice Dufrasne Stadium hoping for a late upset in Group F as well. They prove themselves a tough side to beat here time and time again but it’s fair to say Arsenal will not be the same sort of a challenge.

We’ll thus back the Gunners to snatch all three points and connect their second win in a row for the first time since early October, going for an Away win at 11/10 with William Hill and hoping to see them turn an exciting contest their way.

We feel Standard Liege should employ an attacking approach to the fixture as they need all three points if they’re to challenge for a top 2 spot here, which promises excitement as well. With that in mind, we’re also going for Over 2.5 Goals FT as a banker bet at 4/7 with Paddy Power.
