A match between the London team of Arsenal and Leicester City will open the first round the 2017-18 EPL season. Both team have strengthened themselves during midseason, but bookmakers are on the future hosts’ side in the couple, the footballers from the capital of England. One may argue with the set action line for a number of reasons. First of all, Arsenal have always played powerfully at their home ground; secondly, Leicester City cannot be called an away team; thirdly, the Londoners have already managed to have one official match, while the Foxes haven’t had a gaming practice at such level.
Arsenal have approached the start of the season with great squad problems, as a number of footballers, Mustafi, Sanchez, Wilshere, Ozil, Ramsey, Coquelin, Cazorla and Gabriel Paulista are injured, Koscielny is banned, to be exact. It looks, like some kind of injury epidemic. This factor may have influence on a result of the upcoming game.
Leicester City, as well as Arsenal, have losses, Schmeichel, King, Mendy. The Foxes played, as a clear number two in 2016-17 season, in 19 games outside their native walls within the EPL, the team score 17 goals, which may be called a defensive result. Leicester City defeated Luton Town and Borussia Monchengladbach in during the midseason, lost to Wolverhampton and Burton, had a draw with Milton Keynes Dons team. There wasn’t a match, where 3.5 total was reached.
Arsenal are with great squad issues, while Leicester City will play defensively away. In this situation, a bet on total under has decent chances on success.
Prediction for the match: Under 3.5 goals in the match
