Arsenal v Montpellier Odds: Back Giroud to score in an Arsenal win
Arsenal go into Wednesday?s Champions League match at home to Montpellier looking to book their place in the knockout stages. Group B is currently a three-horse race between Arsenal, Schalke 04 and Olympiakos, with Schalke leading the way with eight points after four matches, followed by Arsenal in second with seven and Olympiakos in third with six points to their name. If the Gunners beat Montpellier and Schalke defeat Olympiakos then both teams will progress through to the next round.
Arsenal registered a confidence boosting 5-2 win at home to fierce local rivals Tottenham at the weekend and they head into Wednesday?s game as the short priced 4/11 favourites with Paddy Power. Meanwhile Montpellier are the 15/2 outsiders to claim their first win in the competition, with a draw available at 15/4.
Goals, goals and more goals have been a key component of Arsenal?s last five matches, which have featured a stunning 32 strikes. The Emirates is likely to witness a few more on Wednesday night, with the in-form Olivier Giroud priced at 7/2 to open the scoring against his former club.
The in-form striker has bagged four goals in his last three games and is priced at evens to score in an Arsenal win, while he could be worth backing at 3/1 to grab two or more on the night. Meanwhile Alex Oxlade-Chamerlain is a tempting bet at 7/1 to score the last goal of the game.
The Gunners have found the back of the night eight times in their last two home matches, with Paddy Power Bookmakers pricing Arsene Wenger?s men at 10/1 to record a 3-1 win, while they can be found at 11/10 to score three or more goals.
Montpellier have endured a torrid time in their debut in Europe's elite competition. They have only managed to scrape a point from four matches so far and have conceded five goals on the road. Furthermore the French side have won just four of their 19 matches this season and are without a victory in November. In truth they have little chance of recording an upset but they will look to draw inspiration from Schalke's impressive 2-0 win at the Emirates back in October.
Despite failing to win any of their four games in the competition Montpellier have still managed to score in each match, and could therefore be worth backing at 6/4 to score one goal, with a 1-0 win available at long odds of 25/1.
