FC Zurich vs Arsenal predictions and betting tips

Arsenal have been incredible this season as they are top of the league. Five of their last five games have ended in over 2.5 goals. FC Zurich have struggled in the league this season. Three of their last four games have ended in over 2.5 goals. I predict over 2.5 goals

Both teams have scored a goal in all their last five games. They are both good in front of goal although Zurich's defence have been awful this season. I predict both teams will score.
