Sam’s Betting Tips – Portsmouth FC vs Arsenal FC

“Arsenal suffered their worst defeat of the season against Olympiacos last time out. Pompey are slowly building towards a return to the Championship and have won an incredible 16 of their last 19 home games. It will be another stern test for the Gunners, but their season cannot afford another tournament exit.”
