Live Betting: Arsenal v. FenerbahcePublished August 27, 2013 by OCR Editor
Arsenal v. Fenerbahce, 745pm UK time at Emirates Stadium
Barclays Premier League side Arsenal comfortably accounted for Turkish rival Fenerbahce in the first leg of the Champions League playoff last week, but manager Arsene Wenger has promised to pick a strong team in order to ensure that his men progress to the group stage of Europe's best football tournament.
Wenger was heavily criticised after his team suffered a shock loss on opening day to Aston Villa, but the criticism has died down somewhat after wins at Fener and London rival Fulham in the premiership. Nonetheless, the pressure remains as he continues to be questioned about his failure to act in the transfer market.
Even if Fenerbahce do conjure up a miracle win, they may still be banned from the group phase. The Court of Arbitration for Sport is expected to hand down a verdict on Wednesday regarding the club's appeal against a two-year European ban for match-fixing.
