Stadium: Emirates (London).
Referee: Simon Hooper.
“Arsenal”: Lokonga, Kolashinats, Mari, Aubameyang, Tomiyasu.
Sunderland: Chirkin, O’Nean, Evans, Huggins, McGeady
“Arsenal” in stunning shape, with practically no coronavirus losses, no Aubameyang, but with Martinelli. It is unlikely that Arteta will exhibit a full reserve squad. Perhaps Nketia and Leno, for example, will get their chances. Cedric and Tavares can also play. Although even the double is three heads higher than the current Sunderland. Even though the Gunners conceded from Leeds, but only from a penalty spot, Ramsdale continues to be among the best keepers and proves that in the case of Bournemouth, and in the next season with Sheffield, he was not to blame for the departure of the teams. …
For a long time nothing has been heard about Sunderland… “Black cats” as they flew out a couple of years ago, and live in the basement of professional divisions. Now the team plays in Ligue 1 and is in third place, by the way. Do you know who is on the second? Wigan Athletic are the 2012/13 FA Cup Winners.
The match could have given the Russian fans more intrigue if Aiden McGeady had not been injured. Unfortunately, the Irishman will not take part in the meeting.
To win Arsenal’s odds are only 1.20. Not enough for a single, and risking an express bet to win Londoners is always dangerous… After all, this is not a “car” like Manchester City, Liverpool or Bayern. Desperate Sunderland fans can check out X2 at 4.86. What, what if ?!
Handicap (-2) on the hosts for 1.93 looks good… Will Arsenal win? Most likely. Will it do it with at least two goals? Probably. Sunderland, even in their own league, have played only two clean sheets of the last ten. Londoners in a good mood are quite capable of crushing an outsider.
Arsenal have scored no more than two goals in eight games, the team won seven times, and in just three games there was a bet on “both will score”. But the opponent’s handicap (+2.5) played in nine matches.
Sunderland have scored in seven games, while the Black Cats have conceded more than one goal just once in their last ten games. Lost to Sunderland only three times in this segment.
Total over three is estimated at 1.84…
Forecast and bet on the match “Arsenal” – “Sunderland”
It is always difficult to predict English Cup matches. No trends play a role here, because the level of the teams’ opponents is different. Premier League and League 1 – a huge abyss. In recent head-to-head matches, Arsenal have won three out of four times. But after May 16, 2017, the teams did not have face-to-face matches. Worth considering master’s handicap (-2) with a good odds of 1.93…
