Arsenal take on Red Star Belgrade in Serbia for their third Europa League clash of the campaign.
The Gunners have already beaten FC Cologne and BATE Borisov, now it’s time to face Red Star Belgrade.
Like Arsenal, the Serbian side played on Saturday. However, unlike the Gunners, they beat Mačva Šabac 4-0.
So far in the Europa League, they’ve beaten FC Cologne (1-0) and drew with BATE Borisov. Therefore, as it stands, they’re probably our main competition.
What’s more, we’re facing them on their turf: the Rajko Mitic Stadium. The atmosphere is bound to be pretty suffocating and our lads are really going to have to dig deep to get over it.
Although this is a different Arsenal side to the one that lost 2-1 to Watford at the weekend, we still need a result to bounce back with before the clash away to Everton on Sunday.
At the moment, it genuinely seems as if winning the Europa League is the only way we’ll manage to get back into the Champions League so we need to be giving these fixtures everything.
Let’s hope Wenger’s side can get another good result away from home.
Here are how the team lines up:
