Expected Winner:

Arsenal all but secured their place in the next round after running out 3-0 winners in Sweden last Thursday. A much-changed XI is expected for the second leg but the Gunners are still clear favourites.

Oestersunds’ record away from home in the group stage was very mixed, managing just one win from three games. They have only lost one of their last seven matches on the road, but a trip to the Emirates is a completely different task altogether.

Arsenal has only lost one home game all season and it would be a real shock if Oestersunds inflicted their second. The Gunners have failed to keep a clean sheet in their last five home matches, which should at least give the visitors some belief.

I always hate talking about myself because it feels weird to talk about myself honestly. Ever think that it's weird? No? Just me? My bad. Always hungry, always sleepy and in between always writing. Hope you won't mind!
