FC Cologne vs Arsenal Preview

FC Cologne vs Arsenal

Competition –¬†UEFA Europa League

Stadium –¬†RheinEnergieStadion

Date: 23rd November 2017

Kick-off time – 18:00 GMT

Jhon Cordoba sparked a massive scene when these two sides met at the Emirates Stadium by scoring the opening goal.

Although the Gunners recovered to win the game, it will be interesting to see if they can win this game at home.

The Germans are currently bottom of the group but have a chance of making it as second in the group but they need to win this game as Red Star Belgrade look in pole position to take that slot.

They have played the Gunners three times in European competition before this game winning once and losing twice.

Arsenal have taken the Europa League seriously as they look to emulate Manchester United and lift the trophy.

They started with three straight victories before being held to a goalless draw by Red Star Belgrade the last time out.

They are all but certain to reach the next round but a win here will ensure they qualify as group winners.

The reverse fixture will be remembered more for the influx of German fans into London and subsequently the Emirates Stadium where the gunners won that tie 3-1 with goals from Hector Bellerin, Sead Kolasinac and Alexis Sanchez enough to see off the Germans.
