12BET (Football Betting Tips) Arsenal have previously taken victory in the UEFA Europa League quarter-final first leg with a 4-1 win over CSKA Moscow. But as the Gunners travel to VEB Arena for the second face off, manager Arsene Wenger’s men have to double their effort in order to smash the CSKA once again. But let’s not forget that the CSKA Moscow have the home advantage here.

CSKA Moscow were 4-1 down from the first leg. But as they welcome Arsenal this week, there is still a good chance for the club to overturn the deficit, considering that CSKA Moscow will be playing at home.
Kirill Nababkin may start in the campaign against the Gunners as he is expected to return after missing the first leg because of suspension.
But on the other hand, Viktor Vasin and Mario Fernande are both unlikely to be featured here due to injury.
Arsenal’s performance seems to be a bit stable at the moment. They have managed get six straight wins across all competitions.
As they take the road to VEB Arena, we expect that Henrikh Mkhitaryan will not come along after picking up knee ligament damage in the first leg battle against CSKA Moscow in the UEL. Good thing though, Danny Welbeck or Alex Iwobi may be able to deputize for his absence. Also Alexandre Lacazette will be very much available in this game.
Arsenal will enter the second leg against CSKA Moscow with very high confidence after their inspiring first leg 4-1 win. Expect the Gunners to bring down the home team again as they aim to achieve their 7th successive win (Sign Up on 12BET to get the best match preview and Sportsbook betting odds).
