Another great free bet deal for all who enjoy betting on the football that features the Schalke v Arsenal game in this weeks round of Champions League games. Bet365 are offering free in-play bets to anyone who places a pre-match bet on any of the weeks champions league games (for full details see below).
Arsenal sit a point behind Schalke in Group B and are looking to avenge their 2-0 loss at home to the German side and move into the top spot. Schalke welcome back the highly rated defender Papadopoulos after he missed out playing at the Emirates two weeks ago. But if Tuesdays game is anything like their last meeting the young Greek defender may not have much of a job to do as Arsenal had a lack of energy and drive when attacking.
The Gunners have lost eight of their last 13 Champions League away games and will hope for at least a point against the free-scoring Germans. Injuries have plagued Arsenal this season and will be missing talent such as Szczesny, Kieran Gibbs, Abou Diaby and Tomas Rosicky. Another midfielder set to miss out is Aaron Ramsey after picking up a groin strain at Old Trafford at the weekend. Gervinho and Chamberlain complete the injury list and Theo Walcott is also a doubt after coming down with illness on Sunday although he has travelled with the team and could make an appearance in the starting line up.
It’s difficult to see Arsenal getting anything more than a point from this match and even that could be stretching the imagination. However, the Gunners pulled something out of the bag last year against Dortmund and only just missed out on a win when the German giants scored in the last minutes of the game. Wenger will be hoping they can replicate that performance and maybe grab 3 points but I suspect the German side will be too strong going forward.
