Double Chance: Slavia Prague
Arsenal managed a 0-3 away win over Sheffield United in the Premier League and have the tough task of negotiating Slavia Prague. At the same time, the hosts were busy with crosstown rivals, Sparta and claimed a 2-0 win. Slavia are unbeaten in ten of their 11 Europa League home games, and have not lost at home in two seasons.
Total Goals: Over 2.5
Going into the fixture, Slavia's morale will be high and they should manage to hold Arteta's men down. However, with Alexandre Lacazette scoring three in his last two outings and Gabriel Martinelli back amongst the scorers, Arsenal cannot be counted out. Only one of Slavia's recent five home games has seen the Over 2.5 not being realized, the same statistic holding for Arsenal's recent five away trips.
Both teams to score: Yes
The Red and Whites have scored 19 goals in their last five home games, but they have only managed two clean sheets in the process. Meanwhile, Arsenal come into the fixture after scoring in their last six successive away trips. Bern Leno and co. have only managed to shut out their rival attackers once in this time.
Slavia Prague vs Arsenal: Team News and Match Preview
Underdogs Slavia Prague
Jindrich Trpisovsky has turned the Red and Whites into the dominant force of Czech football, brushing aside the challenge of Sparta Prague. They are impenetrable at the back and exploit holes in the opposition defences at speed. This has led them to accumulate 72 goals in the league with only a paltry 15 in reply. Trpisovsky has three of the best forwards in the 1. Liga, as Jan Kuchta, Abdallah Sima and Nicolae Stanciu lineup for him. Sima might be missing for the Thursday night affair owing to the injury he picked up against Sparta.
Out of Sorts Arsenal
The Gunners are 9th in the Premier League and have the dark possibility of finishing outside the top half if they do not pick up their pace. Triumphing in the Europa League is their only salvation for European competition next year. They were disappointing at the Emirates but showed against Sheffield United what they can manage without hitting the fifth gear. With Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang expected to return ahead of the fixture, Arteta has a pleasant selection dilemma. The captain's presence will surely alleviate Lacazette, who has four goals in five games for the Gunners.
