Arsenal vs CSKA Moscow Preview

Arsenal vs CSKA Moscow

Competition – UEFA Europa League

Stadium – Emirates Stadium

Date: 5th April 2018

Kick-off time – 20:05 GMT

Arsenal have struggled for much of this season, but they still have an opportunity to make it a good end by winning the Europa League and qualifying for the Champions league like Manchester United did last season.

The Gunners have enjoyed some good form recently and they were in total control against Stoke City at the weekend where they emerged 3-0 victors.

The return to Alexandre Lacazette is a major boost for them ahead of this game.

That win over the Potters makes it 4 wins from the same number of games including the two-legged win over Milan in the Europa League last round amd even more impressively they have netted 11 times in those matches, conceding just once.

CSKA Moscow are one of the smallest teams still in the competition but they are not to be underrated as they showed in the last round.

They trailed Lyon from the first leg 0-1, but they produced a very inspiring performance to win 3-2 at Lyon in the return leg.

They are in good form at the moment as they have won 6 of their last 7 games in all competitions.
