Hosts Arsenal will be seeking a positive response to last weekend’s 3-0 Premier League defeat by Liverpool, while Slavia Prague are unbeaten in their last 21 outings.
The Czech top flight’s leaders have had a man sent off in their last two matches, however, and will want to steer clear of such disciplinary issues here as they face Premier League foes in Europe for the second time this season.
Prague eliminated Leicester City in the last 32 – before knocking out Scottish champions Rangers in the last 16 – while Arsenal progressed against Olympiacos in the last round despite a second-leg loss.
Here’s everything you need to know about the quarter-final first leg this evening.
When is it?
The game will kick off at 8pm GMT tonight.
How can I watch it?
The match will air live on BT Sport, with subscribers also able to stream it live on the broadcaster’s website and app.
Arsenal: Leno; Bellerin, Holding, Gabriel, Cedric; Partey, Xhaka; Saka, Smith Rowe, Willian; Lacazette
Slavia Prague: Kolar; Bah, Zima, Holes, Boril; Hromada; Oscar, Stanciu, Provod, Olayinka; Sima
Arsenal certainly have the quality in their squad to pick up a home win here, but expect them to make hard work of this game against dangerous opponents. Arsenal 2-1 Prague.
