class=”article_teaser__2t5do”>The Gunners have had little trouble finding the net in the Europa League, and Al Hain-Cole expects another high-scoring clash against Giovagnoli’s men
Dundalk will be aiming to round off their Europa League campaign on a high when they welcome Arsenal to the Aviva Stadium on Thursday.
The Irish club are already out of the competition going into the final group game, having lost five games from five, but may fancy their chances of an upset against a Gunners side with nothing to play for after winning the group last week.
Dundalk vs Arsenal Latest Odds
However, Dundalk can be backed at 17/1 (18.00) with bet365 to sign off in style with a shock win against their Premier League opponents, or 7/1 (8.00) to earn a creditable draw.
Mikel Arteta’s men have claimed 15 points from a possible 15 so far and it is no surprise that they are clear 1/7 (1.14) favourites to maintain their 100 per cent record with another victory in Dublin.

Dundalk vs Arsenal Team News
Patrick Hoban is the only injury concern for the hosts, having undergone season-ending ankle surgery last month.
Thomas Partey is back in the treatment room after suffering a recurrence of his thigh problem in Sunday’s North London derby defeat, with David Luiz also unlikely to feature in what is sure to be a completely rotated line-up.
Dundalk vs Arsenal Preview
Although they have failed to get any points on the board so far, Filippo Giovagnoli’s team has not gone down without a fight in Group B – finding the net in four of their five matches and scoring five goals in the three most recent fixtures.
However, they have been made to pay by a defence that has conceded 15 times in five matches and let in at least three goals in each of the last four.
It is likely to be a similar story against the Gunners, who have proved far more prolific in this competition than during their stuttering Premier League campaign, where they have netted just 10 goals in 11 fixtures.
Dundalk vs Arsenal Tips and Predictions
With 16 goals to their name but just two clean sheets from the opening five fixtures in the Europa League, Arsenal are surely worth the 11/10 (2.10) price on ensuring over 3.5 goals for their third continental game in four – as well as a fourth consecutive group game for Dundalk.
