A spot in the Europa League last four is on the line as Arsenal head to the Czech Republic for the return leg against Slavia Prague.

Mikel Arteta’s side will have to find a much-improved showing on their last two European outings if they want to keep their trophy dreams alive, with their participation on the European stage next season also now reliant on winning this competition outright.

The first leg saw the Gunners take a late lead, only for Slavia to find an even later equaliser to leave the tie poised at 1-1 - though an away goal and their long unbeaten streak, dating back to December, means the Prague side have the edge ahead of kick-off.

Arteta has demanded his biggest players step up and provide the “magic” his team need at these moments, with inconsistency a real issue for the Gunners all season long and the chances of them going the distance in this competition hampered by their inability to play at their highest level on a game-to-game, or sometimes even half-to-half, basis.

Here’s everything you need to know ahead of the match.

The game kicks off at 8pm on Thursday, 15 April.
