Arsenal vs Ostersunds predictions and betting tips for Thursday’s Europa League fixture at the Emirates with an anytime goalscorer pick and outright prediction included.
Arsenal have a huge match to come at the weekend as they prepare for their Carabao Cup final with Manchester City. With the Gunners leading 3-0 from the first leg, this game is likely to be low on Arsene Wenger’s priorities and we could see a much changed Arsenal side on Thursday night. The North London outfit had plenty of possession in the first leg and found it relatively simple to carve out chances. Ostersunds picked up in the second half and did miss a penalty late on and will likely offer some threat here but Arsenal’s place in the next round of the competition is virtually assured.

With such prohibitive odds on the hosts, it is advised to look elsewhere for value in this game. Arsenal did all their work in the first 45 minutes seven days ago but they are unlikely to be quite as dominant this time around due to a vast number of changes. Despite this, they should still be able to dominate throughout. The first of our Arsenal vs Ostersunds betting tips is Arsenal to Score in Both Halves which is priced at 7/10 with William Hill.
Arsenal are odds-on favourites but Ostersunds and Graham Potter will want to salvage some sort of pride from this fixture. They are unlikely to be completely overrun by Arsenal’s “B Team” here. They should remain competitive and that could help keep the score down. 2-3 Total Match Goals is 6/5 with Betfair and is the second of our Arsenal vs Ostersunds betting tips.
Mustafi, Mkhitaryan and Ozil are all likely to be rested for this tie. Alex Iwobi hasn’t featured mich for the Gunners this season and he will be desperate for some game time, especially with this summer’s World Cup approaching. He could make an impact here. Alex Iwobi in the anytime goalscorer market is priced at 23/10 with Paddy Power and is the last of our Arsenal vs Ostersunds predictions.
Arsenal start this game as the 1/4 favourites for this tie with bookies expecting the Premier League side to add to their three goals from the first leg. Ostersunds are 10/1 to spring a surprise here in the Capital whilst it is 5/1 for the game to end all square.
Ostersunds missed a penalty during the first leg and really should have found the net during the 90 minutes in Sweden. It’s 10/11 for Both Teams to Score in this second leg.
With a much-changed line-up, Danny Welbeck leads the goalscoring market at 7/10 anytime and 3/1 to score the first. Eddie Nketiah is also fancied to find the back of the net and is 4/5 to do so during the 90 minutes.
