Arsenal vs Slavia Prague (ARS vs SLA) Team News
Bukayo Saka and Emile Smith Rowe failed late fitness tests before the visit of Liverpool but will hope to return here, although Granit Xhaka is still a doubt after missing out at the weekend through illness, so Mohamed Elneny will hope to replace Dani Ceballos in the engine room.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang produced another unfruitful performance at the weekend, and if one or both of Saka and Smith Rowe return to the fold this week, it would not be a surprise to see the captain dropped.
Arsenal Predicted Lineup:
Leno; Bellerin, Holding, Gabriel, Cedric; Partey, Elneny; Saka, Odegaard, Pepe; Lacazette
Slavia are short of centre-back options with Simon Deli and David Hovorka also unavailable, but highly-rated winger Abdallah Sima, who has scored four goals in this season’s tournament, is available despite a domestic suspension.
Eighteen-year-old goalkeeper Matyas Vagner was given his marching orders after just 18 minutes at the weekend, but the teenager should start in goal again here as first-choice Ondrej Kolar remains doubtful with a sinus fracture.
Slavia Prague Predicted Lineup:
Vagner; Bah, Zima, Hromada, Boril; Holes, Sevcik; Sima, Stanciu, Olayinka; Kuchta
ARSENAL vs SLAVIA PRAGUE (ARS vs SLA) PREDICTION
Arsenal will undoubtedly want to do right by their former player Kamara this week, although nothing has been proven yet, and Arteta knows that it is Europa League or bust given their torrid league fortunes.
The visitors command respect given their remarkable unbeaten run, but the Gunners will be out for blood against a ravaged Slavia defence and their teenage goalkeeper, so we are backing Arsenal to claim a narrow first-leg win, albeit without a clean sheet once again.
Prediction: Arsenal 2-1 Slavia Prague
