From Russia With Love

Arsene Wenger and his Arsenal travel to Russia this evening to face CSKA Moscow in their second leg Europa League Quarter Final and will be looking to secure that all-important semi-final spot.

The Gunners have a 4-1 lead of the Russians after the first leg and you would think that a three-goal lead going into the second leg would mean one foot in the next round but as Barcelona and Real Madrid have shown in recent days a three-goal lead means nothing.

The Gunners star last time out was Aaron Ramsey (£2.06) with a stunning cheeky lob over Igor Akinfeev (£0.41) and the Welshman has enjoyed a huge price rise in the last month, currently up £0.63 on the back of a series of fine performances. Ramsey was with a host of other Arsenal stars rested in the 3-2 victory over Southampton at the weekend and will surely feature this evening in the Match Day Dividends race.

Up front Arsenal will, of course, be without the cup-tied Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£2.84) and the Gunners rested Alexandre Lacazette (£2.60) in anticipation of this fixture. Could he be a good Match Day Dividends option?

Elsewhere it will be very intriguing to see what time Sporting Lisbon put out against Atletico Madrid with their president suspending most of the squad after the 2-0 defeat in the first leg. With this in mind, the announcement of the team sheets will be very interesting. Yet a very weak Lisbon team will surely give Atletico favourites Koke (£2.17), Antoine Griezmann (£6.16) and Saul Niguez (£1.97) a great dividends opportunity.
