Arsenal vs Eintracht Frankfurt prediction: How will Europa League fixture play out?



Arsenal can secure their place in the Europa League knockout stages with a draw against Eintracht Frankfurt at the Emirates Stadium. 

However, Unai Emery‘s side are in a state of turmoil having now gone six successive games without a win as speculation mounts over the manager’s future. 

The Gunners were booed off following their disappointing draw with Southampton last weekend, causing supporters’ groups to subsequently release a joint statement calling for action from the club’s hierarchy.

Frankfurt come into the match on a streak of miserable form of their own, having lost their last three successive matches since upsetting Bayern Munich at the start of the month.

Here is everything you need to know:

Official line-ups

Arsenal XI: Martinez; Mustafi, Luiz, Sokratis; Chambers, Xhaka, Willock, Tierney; Martinelli, Aubameyang, Saka

Eintracht XI: Ronnow, Fernandes, Sow, Kostic, Hinteregger, Kamada, Abraham, Hasebe, De Costa, Silva, Paciencia

Team news

Arsenal are set to be without Dani Ceballos, Sead Kolasinac and Bukayo Saka, who are all struggling with injuries. Emile Smith Rowe will not feature having been moved to the U23s squad for their fixture against Villarreal yesterday.

Frankfurt are without long-term absentees Marco Russ and Kevin Trapp.

When is it?

The match is on Thursday 28 November.

When does it kick-off?

The match gets underway at 8:00pm.

How can I watch the match?

The match will be available to watch and stream on BT Sport 2 and the BT Sport App.

What are the odds?

  • Arsenal to win: 10/11
  • Draw: 12/5
  • Eintracht to win: 15/5

Prediction:

Arsenal have been utterly listless in recent weeks and, although that will have had less of a damning impact on the morale of their exciting crop of academy graduates, the increased pressure on the manager and eerie atmosphere at the stadium will make it hard for them to grind out an uplifting result.

Arsenal 1-1 Eintracht
