Arsenal celebrate

Despite an inconsistent start to the 2020/21 campaign, Arsenal remain joint favourites with the best new online casinos to win the Europa League this season.

It’s been a tough few years for Arsenal fans as we haven’t played Champions League football since 2016/17 and we endured our worst Premier League campaign last season after finishing way down in eighth position in the table.

Ordinarily that would have seen us miss out on European football altogether, however, Mikel Arteta manage to salvage something from the season after winning the FA Cup to book our place in the group stages of the Europa League.

Our form domestically has been up and down as we’ve won four and lost four of our eight Premier League games so far. We saw an impressive win over Fulham on the opening weekend and the victory at Manchester United was undoubtedly the highlight of the campaign. But Arsenal have also slumped to shocking defeats at home to Leicester and Aston Villa so it looks like we’ll be facing a real battle to finish in the top four again.

However, our form in Europe has been faultless so far as Arsenal sit top of Group B and are almost certain of qualifying for the knockout stages. We kicked things off with a narrow 2-1 win away to Rapid Vienna before easing to a 3-0 victory over Dundalk at the Emirates. A comfortable 4-1 comeback win over Molde in north London last week secured our third consecutive victory and maintained our 100 percent record in the Europa League.

Arsenal are one of only four clubs to have 9 points from 9 so far so it’s no surprise we’re still priced as joint favourites to win the competition this season. Arsenal are currently 6/1 – the same price as Tottenham – with choiceonlinecasino.com to win the Europa League while Italian giants AC Milan and Leicester City are joint third favourites at odds of 10/1.

I actually think those odds are pretty good at this stage of the competition and they will only get shorter once Arsenal’s place in the knockout rounds is secured – something that could even happen if we beat Molde away later this month.

We don’t know who’ll drop down from the Champions League yet and the biggest threat as it stands could be PSG as they’re in danger of finishing third in their group while Inter Milan and Atalanta are also on course to drop down to the Europa.

We know the competition will heat up in the knockouts, especially if those three are in the mix, but not many clubs will want to draw Arsenal as we’re still a very dangerous side on our day. Arteta may fancy his chances of going all the way in the Europa and it could be our best bet of silverware this season.
