Team news Arsenal London

Arsenal has really strengthened this season and has ambitions to be back at the top of the league. They are aiming for a top-four finish – and maybe, even more, is possible. The potential is definitely there, after finishing 5th last year and participating in the Europa League after initial difficulties. Spaniard Mikel Arteta’s team has improved in important positions. For example, centre-forward Gabriel Jesus and left-back Oleksandr Zinchenko arrived from rivals Manchester City, as well as attacking midfielder Fabio Viera from FC Porto, who is still suffering from an injury. There were no departures that hurt Arsenal.
Arsenal has been in good form in preparation, with Gabriel Jesus in particular flourishing. At Arsenal, unlike at City, he does not have much competition to fear.
The Gunners won the first game of the new season 2-0 in the derby against Crystal Palace. Arteta will probably start with the same starting line-up.

Team News Leicester City

While many of their rivals have added to their squad, Leicester City has been virtually idle in the transfer market. Only the loaned Dennis Praet has returned. On the other hand, goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel, a club legend, has left the club for Nice. So Leicester has faith in the team that only finished 8th last season and thus did not qualify for any international competition. Last weekend, coach Brendan Rogers’ side started the season with a 2-2 home draw against Brentford. Major changes in the team are not expected.


  • Arsenal won their last three home games at the end of last season.
  • In the 21/22 season, Arsenal was the third-best home team.
  • Leicester was the 15th best away team, losing 9 out of 19 games.
  • Arsenal has won four of their last five games against Leicester.
  • Last season Arsenal received an average of 2.33 cards per game – Leicester only 0.67.
  • Referee Darren England has shown at least 2 cards in 88% of his games (average of 3.63).

Our betting prediction for Arsenal FC vs. Leicester City

Arsenal has big ambitions this year and many players like playmaker Martin Odegaard continue to develop and get better. In Gabriel Jesus, the team finally has what it has lacked in recent years: a goalscorer who can convert the many chances created by Martinelli, Odegaard, Saka and co. Leicester looks tired, old and slow this season, lacking fresh players, but so far Rogers is keeping a low profile.

For the moment at least, it looks like Arsenal London can clearly beat Leicester. However, Arsenal’s good form and Leicester City’s poor performance have not gone unnoticed in the betting market. The Asian Handicap -1 was still available at odds of 2.06 at the end of July. However, the 1.84 now offered by Betway is still justified.

Even as a child, I started typing the results of the Bundesliga with my friends at school. The stakes were modest back then: The lunch, a few marbles or maybe a milk slice. Then, at the age of 9, I played the penalty bet once - and immediately got 10 right. The previous week I had won 500 DM and in my childish imagination I was already imagining how many football pictures I could buy at the kiosk on the corner. Unfortunately, it was one of those match days when everything turned out as expected and I only won DM 8.10. Nevertheless, I followed the game with great interest. Nevertheless, the passion to correctly predict the outcome of sporting events haunted me for the rest of my life. I would have loved to own the sports almanac that Marty McFly bought in Back to the Future II. Much later, when I was already working as a journalist for newspapers and as a writer for television, I came across an international betting forum with over 100,000 members - and found out that a lot of people there were giving their tips on German football, but nobody seemed to have a real clue, so I wrote a few English-language preliminary reports with a few tips - and was right about everything. After that, an avalanche started. I got offers from bookmakers, sports papers and even betting syndicates to work for them - and I accepted a few of them too, experiencing the ups & downs of sports betting and travelling halfway around the world in the years that followed. There I met Chinese multimillionaires betting five to six figures, amateur players in Serbia or Turkey supporting their families with small stakes, South Africans gambling away half their fortune, Brazilians who could only leave their favelha and become rich by making the right tips. At one point my life was similar to Matthew McCaughaney's in the film Two For The Money - and far too much stress. I subsequently moved to another continent and ran an English-language football epaper about the Bundesliga from there. After the birth of my son, I devoted myself for many years only to artistic projects in the field of photography and literature. However, I am happy to share my knowledge and passion with the readers of bettingtipsafrica.
