English giants Arsenal start their campaign in Europa League on Thursday. The Gunners
will travel to Austria to face Rapid Vienna in a game from Group B of the competition. Let’s
take a look at it in our football best betting tips for today.
Maybe you remember that Arsenal reached the Europa League final really a short time
ago – in 2019. Now some things are different for them. They are once again managed by a
Spanish coach, but this is not Unai Emery anymore – it’s the much younger Mikel Arteta.
Arteta’s project at Arsenal looks exciting so far. This is his first job as a manager, but just
for some months he already managed to win two trophies for the club. Arsenal look a team
which improves under the new manager and that’s a great thing.
Arsenal lost their last game, though. On Saturday the Londoners faced Manchester City at
the Etihad, but suffered a 0-1 defeat. In the second half Arteta tried to change something,
but his decision to pick Lacazette, Nketiah and Partey from the bench didn’t lead to an
equalising goal. Most likely these three players will be in the starting line-up against Rapid
Vienna on Thursday.
Rapid Vienna are one of the strongest teams in Austria at the moment. Last season they
finished second in the Bundesliga, just behind the champion Salzburg. The head coach
Dietmar Kuhbauer built a good team at the Allianz Stadion and the fans expect some
positive results in Europe as well.
That’s our football best betting tips for the Europa League fixture between Rapid Vienna and
Arsenal in the Austrian capital. We won’t lie to you – Arsenal are the team to beat in this
fixture. The English side is a much bigger club than Rapid, but sometimes this is not the
decisive thing. Let’s see what these two sides will show on the pitch.
