We have a rare opportunity when two teams are in "no other way" situations but to win. Both teams are top teams with great squads and coaching staff.
Both have opened their respective league plays with disappointing results and disappointing their fans. But, not with lack of an effort.
While Arsenal was simply bested by two teams who can beat anyone anywhere - Man City and Chelsea - Atletico drew Valencia at Mestalla after leading them 1-0 and succumbing to a first defensive mistake during the set piece by it's captain Diego Godin in 6 years. Was it accidental mistake or the mistake of other kind - we will never know. What we do know is that today the Coichineros will come out hamming against Rayo Vallecano.
The odds are -257 on Arsenal win and -576 on Atletico. That gives us -158 on a parlay double.
