Home team Arsenal must produce a better performance than they mustered at the weekend in their 3-0 Premier League loss to Liverpool, especially as Slavia Prague have not lost in their last 21 fixtures.
The Czech top flight’s leaders have had a man red-carded in their last two games, though, and will want to put to bed such disciplinary problems here as they take on a Premier League side in Europe for the second time this term.
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.
