Brentford take on the visitors Arsenal in the round 3 match of English Premier League. The match will be played on Saturday, August 20th at Vitality Stadium (Bournemouth).
Bournemouth returned to the Premier League after a couple of years in the Championship. Several interesting transfers have been made in recent days. From Barcelona signed goalkeeper Neto for free. 15 million were also found in order to buy out the Argentine defender Senesi from Feyenoord. However, they started from 2-0 against Aston Villa. And then there was a defeat, and a devastating one, 0-4. But there, Scott Parker's wards played against Manchester City, and on the road. They lasted less than 20 minutes there, and even before the end of the 1st half, the "citizens" led by 3 goals. Of course, the real level will not manifest itself in such fights - no one expected points with the grandees. On the other hand, it is hard to believe that now, at home, this team is going to capitulate so easily.

Arsenal, after a failure in the season before last, was able to add in the 2021/2022 draw. But this was not without a bitter aftertaste: 4th place (and a pass to the Champions League) was lost in the end to their worst enemy - Tottenham. At the same time, the owners gave Mikel Arteta one more chance, and even provided all his requests. This time, the Gunners did not delay signing and did not save money. So far, they show a 100% result. Yes, they played with modest teams, but both times they won by 2 goals. First it was 2-0 with Crystal Palace. And on August 13, they won 4-2 at home against Leicester. With the Foxes, Gabriel Jesus became the hero. The Brazilian, who came from Manchester City, is involved in all the goals: he scored a double and assisted Xhaka and Martinelli.
Arsenal have 4 wins in 5 last head-to-head matches with only one draw. True, after the passage of Bournemouth in the cup in January 2020, the sides have never crossed again. Bookmakers do not believe that Bournemouth will be able to puzzle one of the giants with something. "Arsenal" shows the ability to defeat the modest hosts with a margin, so we bet on the visitors with a handicap of "-1".
Prediction for the match: Arsenal to win with -1.0 handicap.
