Red Star Preview – Europa League, qualification beckons

Europa League, News, NewsNow

After a perfect start so far in the Champions League a draw, or a win over Red Star at The Emirates this week would see us in to the knockout phase (to face Bayern or Barcelona no doubt!) of the Europa League.

We have won all of our games so far including the topsy turvy win over BATE Borisov, the crazy win over Cologne at The Emirates and also Olivier Giroud’s amazing last gasp goal to take the points away in Serbia against Red Star.

We should have all of the team news for you later but expect another mixture of youth and experience including the in-form Nketiah, Giroud and perhaps the return of Ospina.

We are in the middle of a good spell, winning our last four games in a row since the fateful defeat at Watford, and have now won 13 games in a row at The Emirates and are slowly climbing up the Premier League.

However, after Red Star, we now face league leaders Man City on Sunday, so Wenger will definitely need to rotate the squad and rest players with one eye on that. We then face Spurs at home, a crunch game for them, and for us if we want to avoid finishing below them for the second season running.

COYG!
