14th Feb 2018 | Europa League
Potty For Potter
You wonder how much Arsenal's superstars will fancy a trip to an 8000 capacity stadium in Sweden. Their hosts are unbeaten in 6 European home games this season, keeping 5 clean sheets.
The Europa League isn’t readily associated with romance but there’s an FA Cup style story being played out on Thursday when Ostersund host Arsenal.
The Swedish club, almost a latter day Scandinavian Wimbledon, have risen from the 4th tier under their English boss Graham Potter, all the way to the top flight and the knockout stages of a continental tournament.
They are worth a flutter in the double chance market at best odds of 17/10 with BetVictor having won 5, drawn 1 and lost 0 of their home games in Europe this season. They defeated mighty Galatasaray 2-0 way back in July, one of five clean sheets in this remarkable run on their own patch.
If one Premier League giant is liable to falter in this context it’s Arsenal. The Gunners have only won 3 of their 14 away games in the top flight.
