Rapid Vienna vs Arsenal Free Betting Tips – Europa League 2020
Can Rapid surprise against Arsenal?
With the start of the Europa League, there will be football in abundance on Thursdays. 48 teams fight in twelve groups for international wintering. Only for the first two of the group will the journey continue in spring 2021. In Group B there is a very big favourite with the English top club Arsenal London. On the first day of the match, the Gunners will be visiting the Austrian capital. In the Allianz Stadium, there will be a duel between Rapid Vienna and Arsenal.
In addition to these two teams, the Norwegian representative Molde FK and Dundalk from Ireland are also represented in Group B.

Even if a point wins at the beginning would be a big surprise. In the betting base, odds comparison between Rapid Vienna and Arsenal odds of up to 6.00 for the home win can be found. For the favoured guests, on the other hand, there is a maximum of 1.60 times the stake.
Rapid Vienna – Statistics & current form
After a year without any international football, the Austrian record champions returned to the big stage this season. The green-whites were even allowed to dream of the Champions League after the runner-up. However, Rapid suffered a 2-1 defeat at KAA Gent and had to bury the dream of the premier class.
For the eighth time in the Europa League group stage
The disappointment was thereafter the end against the Belgians, but at the same time, the focus was also turned towards the future. Rapid Vienna is taking part in the group stage for the eighth time, but in the seven attempts so far, the move into the next round has only been fixed twice. This was the case in 2015/16 and 2018/19.
Rapid Vienna wants to lay the foundation for progress this year, especially in the Allianz Stadium at home. The numbers on your home lawn are quite impressive. Rapid has not lost for any less than 13 international home games and celebrated eight wins and drew five times during this period. The best bookmakers are offering 1X odds of around 2.40 on Thursday between Rapid Vienna and Arsenal for the double chance bet.
However, such a point win would be a big surprise, after all, the duel with the Gunners is the biggest game of the often still young career for many players. Due to a mixture of financial worries and strong work with young talent, the motto at Rapid Vienna is “Young researchers”. Many youngsters are in the squad, are already part of the regular staff and act as top performers.
However, there is no need to discuss quality and although the English will certainly not play with the best line-up, Arsenal is much stronger and accordingly the clear favourite in this duel.

↪️ Strebinger – Hofmann, Barac, Stojkovic – Ullmann, Ljubicic, Grahovac, Arase – Fountas, Kara, Ritzmaier

Arsenal – Statistics & current form
A proud streak almost came to an end last season. In the domestic championship, Arsenal completely disappointed and only reached an eighth place in the table, but thanks to their 14th title win in the FA Cup, Arsenal secured an international ticket at the very last moment. This is the 25th time that the Gunners will be represented internationally in a row.
Europa League group stage as a chore
The international participation was of great importance for Arsenal because without this participation captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang would have left London. Nevertheless, the Europa League is just a consolation for Arsenal, because the claim is still the premier class. In order for the Champions League anthem to be heard again soon in the Emirates Stadium, Arsenal must improve significantly.
The title win in the Europa League is a possible chance to secure the Champions League ticket. The Gunners certainly have the quality for this, although Arsenal’s Europa League team in autumn will hardly be compared to that in a possible final phase. Due to the extremely tight calendar and the apparently very simple group, a number of regular players in Vienna will be spared.
The squad width makes a complete rotation possible and players like newcomers William Saliba, Reiss Nelson, Joe Willock or Eddie Nketiah are considered to be absolute top talents who can collect important game minutes.
The B-Elf regularly impresses in the Europa League
In the last few years, it was already evident that the Gunners trusted the young talents, especially in autumn. A complete B-Elf would not be surprising. However, if you believe that the prediction for the home side offers great value between Rapid Vienna and Arsenal, you should take a closer look at the Gunners’ results in the group stage.
In the group stage, Arsenal has played nine away games so far and have only suffered a single defeat, while Arsenal held the upper hand in six of the nine games.
The probable lineup of Arsenal:
↪️ Runarsson – Kolasinac, Saliba, Holding, Soares – Thomas, Elneny – Maitland-Niles, Willock, Smith Rowe – Reiss Nelson, Nketiah
