Arsenal have drawn Eintracht Frankfurt, Standard Liege and Vitoria SC in the Europa League group stage, with matches to take place between September 19th and December 12th.
Arsenal have been drawn in Group F, along with Eintracht Frankfurt, Standard Liege and Vitoria in the group stage of the Europa League this season.
Frankfurt were the semi-finalists in the competition last year, only eventually losing out to Chelsea, so they should provide a good test for the Gunners.
Standard Liege are top of the Belgian First Division, and at least they won’t represent a long trip for the team. Nor will Vitoria, hailing from Portugal.
The fixture schedule is as follows, with confirmation of the games assigned to each date to come two hours after the conclusion of the draw:
- Matchday One – Thursday, September 19th
- Matchday Two – Thursday, October 3rd
- Matchday Three – Thursday, October 24th
- Matchday Four – Thursday, November 7th
- Matchday Five – Thursday, November 28th
- Matchday Six – Thursday, December 12th
