Swansea vs. Arsenal
Friday, March 16th 2013, 11:00 CET
The match between Arsenal and Swansea that’s going to take place on 16.03 will be the fourth head-to-head confrontation between the two teams already this season, and one of the most awaited matches of the weekend. What is the most thrilling about this match is that both teams will start with a W2 D1 L2 record from their latest five direct confrontations.
Even if the scoring table reveals an almost perfect balance between these teams, Arsenal remain very confident in their chances. Moreover, regarding the amazing 0-2 victory achieved by Swansea on the 1st of December, Arsenal made a ironic, pertinent declaration, by considering it “Swansea’s final flourish”. As a consequence, their last confrontation from the 16th of January ended in a1-0 Arsenal’s victory, achieved with the help of Jack Wilshere, who scored for his team in the 86th minute of the match.
Apart from the teams’ level of self-confidence, that appears to be elevated enough in both cases, there are some more objective factors for writing the Swansea-Arsenal 16.03 tip that we should take into account. For example, the proportion of goals from set pieces achieved by Swansea (50%) is higher than any other team in the Premier League this season. Arsenal, on the other hand have their strong “arsenal” of weapons. They averaged 58.5% in possession this season, more than any other team (Swansea are on the 6th position, with 55.6%).
To draw a conclusion, I would say that both teams have their strong points and their advantages, and everything is going to happen tomorrow will depend on the way the teams are going to adjust their best qualities and turn them into winning goals. Still, my choice for tomorrow is Arsenal, and I am going to bet 5 units on their victory at 2.21. The odds I used are from IBCBET.
Arsenal to win at 2.21.
