FA Cup quarter-finals: Arsenal v Lincoln tips
FootyOn give their Arsenal v Lincoln tips for the second of this season’s FA Cup quarter-finals.
Saturday, March 11th, 17:30 GMT, Live on BT Sport 2.
A whopping 88 places separate the Gunners and Red Imps, but the latter bridged that gap against Burnley.
With Arsenal knocked out of Europe and having lost five of their last seven games, is this the perfect storm for an FA Cup giant-killing?
The heart may swell with romance, but the head and betting says different for this Emirates encounter.
Here are our top Arsenal v Lincoln tips…
Both teams to score
A common thread among those recent Gunners defeats are both they and their opposition found the target.
Although the visiting Red Imps have kept five clean sheets in their last six, they face a different proposition here.
Lincoln pose a set-piece threat, as the last Premier League side they face will tell you.
Arsenal’s attacking ensemble is well-documented.
That makes odds of 13/8 with BetVictor for both teams to score in 90 minutes well worth taking.
Arsenal to win (90 minutes) and both teams to score
An even better price is available on this outcome.
The teams that have handed the Gunners hidings are Bayern Munich and Liverpool.
Lincoln may be flying in the Conference, but this is about enjoying the occasion.
The Red Imps have failed to score just twice since October, so will give the home defence something to think about.
Half-time correct score: Arsenal to lead 1-0
Under-fire Arsene Wenger ought to be wary of this FA Cup tie, and with good reason.
Lincoln have the scalps of two Championship clubs and a win at Turf Moor during this incredible run.
The Gunners have had their noses in front at half-time in three of their last five matches, however.
It is just so hard to envisage them being kept out by the visitors.
