Arsenal 2/5 to qualify for Champions League

Arsenal are odds-on to qualify for the group stages of the Champions League despite being handed a difficult play-off draw in Fenerbahce.

The Gunners are slight 6/4 favourites to win the opening leg in Istanbul later this month, but are 2/5 to complete the job at the Emirates.

Meanwhile, Celtic must travel to Shakhter Karagandy, champions of Kazakhstan, and they too are favourites in the away leg, with the Scottish champions 2/7 to win the tie.

Arsenal’s tough draw has seen their Champions League outright price drift from 22/1 to 28/1, but any English team to win this season’s competition remains a 5/2 chance.

Sky Bet’s Chris Spicer told Football Betting News: “Turkey is a notoriously difficult place to go for English teams so we’re wary of Fenerbahce’s threat in the first leg.

“However, we’re confident Arsene Wenger will be well prepared for the tie, so we’re going short at 2/5 on them to progress.”
