Arsenal v Lens Match Preview & Best Odds

Kick-off: 8pm UK Time, Wednesday 29th November 2023

 

Arsenal need just one more point in order to assure themselves of a place in the knockout stages of the 2023/24 Champions League and they will be confident of success when they welcome Lens to the Emirates Stadium this evening.

Arsenal have been dominant in their group in this season’s Champions League with nine points collected from their opening four matches. At this stage of proceedings they are uncatchable although their only slip-up thus far has been against Lens, against whom they do battle tonight. Indeed, with back-to-back matches to West Ham United (Carabao Cup) and Newcastle United (Premier League) still fresh in the memory, Arsenal brushed aside reigning Europa League champs Sevilla in their last Champions League outing earlier this month and Mikel Arteta’s men will be guaranteed a place in the last sixteen should they avoid defeat tonight. Even if the Gunners lose against Lens for a second time in the competition, they will still go through if Sevilla beat PSV although Arteta will be determined to go through as group winners.

Lens will doubtless have entered Group B with realistic hopes, however they have impressed throughout the group stages and while they lost against PSV in their last European outing, they are still very much in the hunt for a top two finish. After four rounds of group games, Lens sit level with PSV on five points apiece and confidence will be high ahead of their meeting with an Arsenal side against whom they have gone unbeaten in three Champions League meetings.

Lens have been defensively solid in recent weeks but with all due respect to the Ligue 1 outfit, facing the Gunners at the Emirates Stadium will be a tough assignment. Mikel Arteta’s men haven’t shown anything like the attacking proficiency that they did last term but we envisage them doing enough to send themselves over the line tonight.

 

Back Arsenal to win-to-nil at best odds of 5/4
