Capital One Cup – Sheffield Wednesday vs Arsenal Betting Preview

Sheffield Wednesday have already knocked out a premiership side in Newcastle and whilst Arsenal are a much tougher prospect, Sheffield will have confidence going into this game as they are currently on a eight game unbeaten streak.

Sheffield Wednesday’s main concern going into this game will be Arsenal’s fire power because even if Arsenal play out a weaker side they will still have either Giroud or Walcott up front. And this concern is only deepened when you take into account that Sheffield have failed to keep a clean sheet in their last four home matches, conceding seven in the process.

Arsenal come into this game high on confidence after four straight wins in which they have put at least two past each opponent. Arsenal are likely to field a weaker side in this stage of the competition but they have already knocked out rivals Tottenham Hotspur in the last round and they will have a very strong bench if it isn’t going their way towards the end of the game.

Sheffield Wednesday vs Arsenal Head to Head Statistics

08/05/00 BPL Arsenal vs Sheffield Wednesday 3 : 3
02/01/00 BPL Sheffield Wednesday vs Arsenal 1 : 1
08/03/99 BPL Arsenal vs Sheffield Wednesday 3 : 0
25/09/98 BPL Sheffield Wednesday vs Arsenal 1 : 0
27/03/98 BPL Arsenal vs Sheffield Wednesday 1 : 0

These two sides last met back in 2000 but in the years before that they have played each other on 114 different occasions. In that time, Arsenal had been the better team after winning 51 of those matches to Sheffield’s 32 wins.

They have met each other 55 times in which Sheffield have been the home side and in those matches, Sheffield had the edge after beating Arsenal 24 times whilst losing just 16 to the Gunners.

Using head to head statistics alone, it would suggest that this game could go either way with Sheffield edging it due to their home advantage but I would ignore these statistics as these games all took place at least 15 years ago.

Sheffield Wednesday Recent Form

23/10/15 CHA Rotherham vs Sheffield Wednesday 1 : 2
20/10/15 CHA QPR vs Sheffield Wednesday 0 : 0
17/10/15 CHA Sheffield Wednesday vs Hull 1 : 1
03/10/15 CHA Sheffield Wednesday vs Preston 3 : 1
26/09/15 CHA Brentford vs Sheffield Wednesday 1 : 2

Sheffield Wednesday are in terrific form going into this tough game after remaining unbeaten in their last five games with three wins and a couple of draws. And whilst their opponents haven’t been of the toughest caliber, they showed their strength in a 1-1 draw against 2nd place Hull City.

Arsenal Recent Form

24/10/15 BPL Arsenal vs Everton 2 : 1
20/10/15 CHA Arsenal vs Bayern Munich 2 : 0
17/10/15 BPL Watford vs Arsenal 0 : 3
04/10/15 BPL Arsenal vs Manchester United 3 : 0
29/09/15 CHA Arsenal vs Olympiakos 2 : 3

Arsenal are also in very strong heading into this cup fixture as they have now won four on the spin including wins over Everton, Bayern Munich and Manchester United who are all considerably tougher opposition than Championship side Sheffield Wednesday.

Sheffield Wednesday Team News:

Sheffield Wednesday are expected to be without Michael Turner, Alex Lopez, Marco Matias and Modou Sougou all for this match through injury. It will be interesting to see whether Carvehal will send out his best XI or play a slightly weaker side as he did against Newcastle.

Arsenal Team News:

Arsenal’s injury problems have only worsened recently with Aaron Ramsey and Mikel Arteta both being ruled out whilst Jack Wilshere, Tomas Rosicky and Danny Welbeck all remain unavailable. David Ospina would be expected to start this match but his injury may provide Matt Macey with a first start for the club.

Sheffield Wednesday vs Arsenal Average Goals Per Game Statistics

Both sets of data suggest that the game on Tuesday evening will see a minimum of three goals scored.

Sheffield Wednesday vs Arsenal Free Sports Bets, Tips & Predictions

I think that even though Arsenal will likely line-up with a weaker team, they will still come out of this match with a win as confidence is high in the squad and even their second string players are talented. With changes expected to the back-line such as Debuchy and Gibbs coming in, they could leak a goal to a Sheffield Wednesday side that has scored in their last 16 home matches and that is why my banker is for Arsenal to win and there to be over 2.5 goals.

Theo Walcott is likely to start as he didn’t even come off the bench on the weekend which gives him a great chance to get the first goal in this match as he will be looking to impress Arsene Wenger once again.
