The teams are finally out for Arsenal’s Europa League clash with Slavia Prague in the Czech Republic.
The Gunners had to settle for a 1-1 draw at the Emirates last week after their rivals struck a last-minute equaliser, and we simply can’t afford to lose focus during today’s encounter.
Our league position at present means we need a minor-miracle to to earn European football without winning the Europa League, and winning this illustrious competition will hardly be a walk in the park.
We will have to focus on one opponent at a time however, and we cannot afford to take the Czech side lightly.
We were already aware that we would be without both Kieran Tierney for this evening’s match, as well as the remainder of April at least, but Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Martin Odegaard’s potential availability was yet to be confirmed.
Using the information known to us, we predicted the following Arsenal starting XI in our Team News earlier on today and was pretty far off…
Bellerin Holding Gabriel Cedric
Saka Smith Rowe Willian
