Arsenal face Partizan test

Arsenal (4/6) will still be reeling from their calamitous defeat at the hands of West Brom when they travel to Serbia to take on Belgrade on Tuesday for their Champions' League Group H game.

Saturday's 3-2 home defeat was typical of the Arsenal team of recent years going from great performances (Spurs away) to unexpected losses meaning they are still some way from being serious title contenders. If you fancy another shock 3-2 loss in this one you can get a mammoth 50/1.

Luckily for the Gunners both Chelsea and United also dropped points so they didn't fall too far behind their rivals but they will need to cut out these type of performances if they are too keep their hopes alive both domestically and in Europe

Arsene Wenger will be looking for a positive reaction from his players when they take on Belgrade "The whole squad was very low after the weekend but I believe we will play well on Tuesday," said the Gunners boss.

Arsenal are top of the group after their 6-0 demolition of Braga on matchday one and a win in this one will put them in a strong position to qualify for the knockout stages.  If you fancy them to win by the same scoreline here you can get 150/1 on them to win 6-0.

Partizan (9/2) lost out to Shaktar Donetsk by a single goal in their first game and will desperate to get off the mark in this one.

Arsenal have some injury problems with Cesc Fabregas, Theo Walcott and Robin van Persie all out. Kieran Gibbs will undergo a fitness test on Monday.

Samir Nasri did his best to save some of his teams blushes on Saturday scoring two goals, he is 8/1 to repeat that feat.

For the home side Brazilian Cleo is their top scorer in a league campaign that sees them head the domestic table on goal difference. The striker is a whopping 9/1 to score first.

Cleo is a controversial character in Belgrade after transferring from hated rivals Red Star in the summer of 2009. It was the first transfer between the clubs for more than 20 years.  The move provoked an outcry that included death threats.

Even his own fans did not warm to him due to his former association with their hated rivals but that all changed when he scored against for Partizan against Red Star.

Arsenal will always provide an attacking threat to any team and Partizan have also got goals in them having scored 13 goals in seven Champions League game this season so the bet could be for lots of goals. I am going for over 3.5 at odds of 2/1.

I think the best 90 minute bet could be for a draw at 5/2. The outside bet being a 2-2 draw at 16/1.

The game kicks off at 19:45 and is live on Sky Sports 4. Bet in-play from kick off at William Hill.
