Arsenal Soccer Pick
As the weekend was destined for the English Cup matches and Arsenal were eliminated from the competition, the team won a longer training period. Even so, coach Arsene Wenger is likely to put a team almost entirely in reserve on Thursday.
That’s because the Gunners have a decision scheduled for next Sunday, February 25. They will face Manchester City in the final of the League Cup of England. It will be the first of two straight games against the Blues. The second will be for the English Championship and is scheduled for March 1st.
To avoid injuries and even wear and tear on his athletes before a duel that will require an above-normal dedication, the French coach, who normally makes conservative decisions, will hardly take risks.
In addition, two casualties are already certain due to concussions. Midfielder Aaron Ramsey (18 matches in English Premier League 2017/2018, six goals) and striker Alexandre Lacazette (26 matches, nine goals) are in the infirmary.
The cups are the only title hopes for Arsenal this season. In the English Championship, the team does not have real chances to fight for the cup. With 45 points (13 wins, six draws and five losses) he is in the sixth position, even outside the classification zone for European tournaments.
Ostersunds Soccer Pick
As the 2018 edition of the Swedish Championship will only start on April 1, the Ostersunds are also in the soft calendar mode. He made just two official games a year. In the first, on 9 February, beat the Trelleborgs 3-0 in the first round of the Swedish Cup. Then he looked at Arsenal.
That also gave Graham Potter enough time to prepare some surprises to face Arsenal on Thursday. However, the technical limitations and the long defeat in the first leg will end up turning the duel into London as a great training opportunity for the local tournaments.
The next Ostersunds appointment is scheduled for February 26. It will face Atvidabergs away from home for the second round of the Swedish Cup.
