Best Tip: Arsenal to win to nil

Claiming victory in a game while shutting out the opposition is the ideal scenario for any manager, and that's just what we are predicting Arsenal will do on Wednesday in front of their own fans. The stats suggesting Mikel Arteta's side is reliable in both defence and attack, and Lens will be hard pushed to either stop them or score against them during 90 minutes. Best odds of 2.20 are available on Arsenal to win to nil as the pair go head-to-head.
