Dundalk vs Arsenal Pundits Predictions, Betting Tips, Opta Stats and Predicted Line-ups

Europa League tips

Arsenal are already through as group winners going into this match, so our Dundalk vs Arsenal predictions have to take that into account tonight. Dundalk have already been eliminated.

Mikel Arteta is expected to make wholesale changes to his starting 11 tonight with a lot of his younger players coming into the squad. Arsenal have secured top spot thanks to five straight wins including a 3-0 victory in Ireland at the end of October.

The Irish Premier Division side are out of their depth in this company and have lost all their group games so far, but the experience of playing the likes of Arsenal will not be lost on the players.

Read the best pundits’ predictions and betting tips for this match below.

Arsenal won the revrese fixture 3-0 earlier this season and you can see the highlights above.

 

Evening Standard Prediction

“Arsenal have played with a swagger and confidence in Europe that has been missing from their league displays, and that is unlikely to change against on paper the poorest team in the group.”

Betting Tip: Arsenal to win 3-1 – 11/1 with SBK.

 

Goal Prediction

“With 16 goals to their name but just two clean sheets from the opening five fixtures in the Europa League, Arsenal are surely worth the price on ensuring over 3.5 goals for their third continental game in four – as well as a fourth consecutive group game for Dundalk.”

Betting Tip: Over 3.5 goals – 11/10 with Bet Victor.

 

The Independent Prediction

“It is likely to be a tough outing for Dundalk, but with Arsenal rotating their line-up, why shouldn’t they dare to dream of at least picking up their first point of the campaign? Dundalk 1-1 Arsenal.”

Betting Tip: 1-1 draw – 17/1 with SBK.

 

Sportinglife Prediction

“The Gunners have scored an average of 3.2 goals per game in the competition this season, while matches they have been involved in have seen an average of 3.8 goals.

For Dundalk, this figure is even higher, with the five matches they have been involved in this season’s Europa League yielding an average of 4.2 goals per game.

This all points towards over 3.5 goals, which has landed in each of Dundalk’s last three matches in the Europa League, and two of Arsenal’s last three.

Betting Tips: Over 3.5 goals – 11/10 with Bet Victor & Arsenal to win 4-0 – 17/2 with Paddy Power.
