2010 Emirates Cup Final Day – Preview & Betting

August 1st, 2010

Tonight the last games of the two-day Emirates Cup competition will take place at London’s Emirates Stadium, where Arsenal Football Club is hosting its fourth annual tournament.

The Emirates Cup takes place every year at the London ground, and hosted by Arsenal sees three other clubs form the remaining teams in the tournament, this year is it the Scottish club Celtic, the French Lyons and the Italian AC Milan.
Taking place over two days, the tournament sees four matches take place, with the winner taking away a trophy and tonight the last two matches will go ahead and to find the best betting markets head to Ladbrokes.com.au.

Kicking off the action at the Emirates will be AC Milan and Lyon, with the Italians slightly ahead in the odds at $2.10 with Ladbrokes.com.au.

The Italian club managed to hold the hosts to a one-all draw last night in front of over 60,000 vocal Gunners fans, with Alexandre Pato providing the equaliser in the 77th minute to Marouane Chamakh’s opener in the 36th.

Lyon are at $3.10 for the win tonight, and after scoring two against Celtic could be a hot bet, although lost the advantage when Gary Hooper and Georgios Samaras scored in the final ten minutes.

Next up on the pitch will be the hosts themselves as they welcome rival Scottish giants Celtic to the ground, with Arsenal hot favourites at $1.33 with Ladbrokes.com.au.

The gunners were held to a surprising draw last night, and need to score, and score a lot, to see them move up the leader board.

Celtic proved they can overcome the odds last night when they clinched a draw with Lyon, and as they head into tonight’s fixture at $8, could be a lucrative wager.

The Scottish side are currently top of the ladder, with three points to their name as a draw is worth a single point, with each goal scored adding another, while a win is worth three.

At Ladbrokes.com.au, not only can you bet on which side you believe will win, but if the odds are not rewarding enough for you, you can also wager on the specific score line, the player to score first for their respective club and the number of goals to be scored in total!
