Arsenal are looking to win successive games in the Champions League when they travel to face Lens on Tuesday evening. The Gunners thrashed PSV Eindhoven 4-0 at the Emirates Stadium last time out, and Mikel Arteta’s side will fancy themselves to pick up another three points on this occasion.

We’ve picked out some markets which we feel offer great value in this contest.

Lens vs Arsenal Betting Tips

  • Emile Smith Rowe 1+ shots on target @ EVS
  • Over 2.5 Arsenal goals @ 2/1

Team news

Lens are likely going to miss Massadio Haidara, who hasn’t featured since their draw at Sevilla. David Costa, Jimmy Cabot and Wuilker Farinez are all out with injuries.

Arsenal will likely be without attackers Bukayo Saka and Gabriel Jesus after both picked up knocks in their 4-0 victory over Bournemouth at the weekend. Jurrien Timber remains sidelined with an anterior cruciate ligament injury, while Thomas Partey and Gabriel Martinelli are also set to be absent.

Emile Smith Rowe to have 1+ shots on target @ EVS

With a few of Arsenal’s attackers set to miss out in midweek, there is an opportunity for Emile Smith Rowe to come into the lineup and fight for more game time. It was only two seasons ago that the youngster looked to be the Gunners’ next star in the making. But with the form of Saka, Martinelli and Trossard last year, he found himself slipping down the pecking order.

If he does get a start against Lens, he will look to seize his opportunity and showcase his talents and try and compete with Arteta’s trusted attackers for a consistent run of games in the side. Smith Rowe likes to get into dangerous positions and register shots on goal. Whether he starts or comes off the bench, EVS offers great value to have a shot on target.

 Over 2.5 Arsenal goals @ 2/1

Arsenal are having fun in front of goal at the moment. They fired four goals past Bournemouth at the weekend and also hit the same number against PSV Eindhoven in their Champions League opener.

The Gunners have scored over three goals in three of their games across all competitions so far this term, and with two of them coming in their last three fixtures, there is a sense that Arteta’s men are getting into a rhythm and being clinical with their chances. If Arteta can deliver another top-drawer performance in front of goal with some of his best attackers out of action, it will only boost Arsenal’s credentials in the Premier League as well as the Champions League.
