Anything the Serbians do against the group’s favourites Arsenal will be regarded as a bonus since they will battle BATE and Koln for the second place in the Group H.

Red Star

The hosts could have easily had the perfect record and six points after two rounds, but they were unlucky to fail and double the lead on the opening day against BATE (ended in a 1-1 draw in Belgrade).

They are in a fantastic position after 12 rounds in their domestic campaign where Vladan Milojevic and his sided holds the very top of the standings being four points clear off their arch-rivals and last year’s champions Partizan Belgrade.


Even though Arsene Wenger rested his key players in Europa League, the Gunners had no troubles easing past both Koln and BATE to collect the maximum of six points from two games.

Theo Walcott and Olivier Giroud lead Arsenal troops in Europa League and they have scored three of team’s seven goals so far.

As for their Premier League campaign, ambitions have been damaged with the last-gasp 2-1 defeat to Watford on Saturday at Vicarage Road Stadium.

Red Star vs Arsenal: Head to head

The lone meeting between the sides happened back in the third round of the 1978/79 edition of the UEFA Cup. Red Star eliminated Arsenal on a 2-1 aggregate, on the back of a 1-0 win at Belgrade before settling for a 1-1 draw in London.

Red Star vs Arsenal: Prediction

The gulf in quality should be notable, but we don’t expect Arsenal to have that easy of a job in front of Red Star’s fans on Thursday.

The Gunners are more than vulnerable at the back with their mixed lineup and we feel Red Star’s attacking line can bag at least one here.

Red Star vs Arsenal: Bets

The main betting option is Over 2.5 goals FT at 4/5.

Arsenal to win & BTTS is paid at 12/5.
