CSKA Moscow v Arsenal (1-4) Friday 13th April 2018, 5.05am (AEDT)
Arsenal prepared for the 2nd leg of this quarter final with a thrilling 3-2 victory over Southampton in the EPL. Danny Welbeck was the hero in that game, but it remains to be seen if he can reproduce that form in the Europa League. The English club have it all to lose in Moscow as they head there with a comfortable 4-1 lead and priced as favourites at $1.91.
A vital away goal, albeit a consolation to Arsenal’s four, could be CSKA’s one hope in this tie. If they can take advantage of home ground advantage of the bitterly cold weather, then they have a chance of causing a huge upset. They stand at $3.60.
