Referee: Carlos Velasco Carballo
The Belgian Champions have made a great start of the season by standing first at the Pro League table. They’ve secured 23 points in the first 11 matches , also being unbeatable since 21 April of the last season. Anyway, beside being unbeaten in the last 6 months , they’ve failed to win the last 3 matches in any competition. They lost to Dortmund and failed to win vs Genk and Mechelen by securing only 2 points.
Besnik Hasi will look to finish tradition of finishing 4th at the group stage this season,so they need to get at least one point tonight vs Arsenal
Possible Line up : Proto; Vanden Borre, Heylen, Mbemba, Deschacht; Tielemans, Defour; Najar, Praet, Suárez; Mitrovic
The English team have made an unexpected start of the season so far by winning only 2 games out of 8 at the Premier League but still they wont find it hard to beat Besnik Hasi’s side tonight at Constant Vanden Stock Stadium.
Arsenal stands second on the group D table after beating Galatasaray 4-1 [thanks to a hattrick by Danny Welbeck] and loosing 2-0 vs Borussia Dortmund at Germany.
After the concerning results at the Premier League [loosing vs Chelsea and draw vs Hull City ] , Arsene Wenger admits that his side will bounce back with a big win tonight.
Arsenal will miss their both Goalkeepers tonight [ Szczęsny who is suspended , and Ospina who is injured ] , so Wenger will play Emiliano Martínez, who will make his European debut. The last time we saw the youngster play , was against Reading on that hard-earned 7-5 victory.
Beside the bad news, some players may come back from the injury. Aaron Ramsey will return from a hamstring injury against Hull City, also Jack Wilshere and Walcott will be able to play.
Possibe Line up : Martínez; Monreal, Mertesacker, Chambers, Gibbs; Arteta, Ramsey; Wilshere, Sánchez, Cazorla; Welbeck
